The Meucci lab has open positions for a senior scientist and postdoctoral researcher.Drexel logo

Ideal applicants will have extensive experience in neurobiology, neuroimmune pharmacology, and translational neuroscience, allowing them to contribute to the overall mission of the lab with creativity and passion. Both positions will be involved in ongoing NIH-funded projects in the field of neuroHIV, neuroprotection, and drug abuse, which require expertise in both cellular/molecular neurobiology techniques and small animal in vivo models. Experienced candidates are expected to facilitate teamwork, participate in the training of graduate students, and ultimately enhance the research potential of the whole group. Experience in multi-electrode array electrophysiology is highly valued for these positions.


PhD (or MD/PhD) or equivalent doctoral degree is required.

At least 3 years experience in a neurobiology or translational neuroscience setting.

Strong communication and interpersonal skills.

Time management and organization skills.

Highest work ethic standards.

Candidates should have extensive experience in traditional and modern techniques of cellular and molecular neurobiology, histology, microscopy/cellular imaging, and use of small animal models to study CNS disorders. Ideal candidates will have experience in techniques including multi-electrode arrays, electrophysiology, and/or in vivo imaging. Candidates will be able to closely follow and implement the many emerging technical innovations in the field of neuroscience. Previous experience in the field of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders is a plus, along with familiarity with primary neuronal cultures and brain tissue processing, self-motivation, commitment to success and innovation, and exceptional organization and communication skills.  Opportunities for career advancement are available.
