Post-doctoral Research Associate

Two postdoctoral positions are available to investigate the molecular events that dictate the regenerative response of sensory neurons in Dr. Valeria Cavalli’s laboratory in the Department of Neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis. One project will investigate how satellite glial cells, which surround sensory neuron soma, communicate with neurons and other non-neuronal cells in dorsal root ganglia to control sensory neuron function in health, disease and after injury. A second project will develop new strategies for spinal cord repair, which will harness the information we gathered in our studies of the molecular events that dictate the regenerative response of sensory neurons after peripheral axon injury.

Post-doctoral Research Associate/Senior/Staff Scientist with background in omics data analysis

We are seeking a passionate scientist with background in omics data analysis to join our team and apply available and innovative bioinformatics and statistical approaches to support our NIH-funded research projects on the multicellular mechanisms promoting axon regeneration in mouse and human models. The project includes but is not limited to conducting analysis on next generation sequencing data, as well as single cell genomics and single cell transcriptome analysis.
