Post-doctoral position is available on a NIH-funded project (Extracellular vesicles and neuroinflammation) investigating the role of leukocyte:endothelial interactions and shear stress in the production of extracelliular vesicles at the blood-brain barrier. Familiarity with isolation and culture of brain microvascular endothelial cells, and procurement of leukocytes, is desirable. Experience with subcellular fractionation and differential centrifugation a plus. A commitment of 2 years is expected, with possibility of extension for an additional year.
