Postdoctoral Position
University of Lorraine, Nancy, France

A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Barbara Stonestreet’s laboratory at The Alpert Medical School of Brown University/Department of Pediatrics Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, Providence, RI effective February 15, 2019.

We have four funded NIH grants. Two proposals involve neuroprotective strategies in fetal sheep exposed to in utero ischemia and one on endotoxin related effects on inflammatory conditions in the fetal brain. One of our major focuses is the fetal blood-brain barrier. The other grants are in neonatal rodents exposed to hypoxia-ischemia related brain injury with a focus on neuroprotection. We are interested in understanding the effects of two neuroprotective agents on ischemia and inflammation signaling in blood-brain barrier function and on brain injury in the fetus and newborn. We have very exciting data to show that one of our neuroprotective agents has major neuroprotective effects.

 

The position requires MD/PhD in neuroscience/pharmacology/or  related disciplines, expertise with in vivo animal experimentation and hands-on experience with along with neuroscience expertise, familiarity with neuroscience bench work techniques including molecular biology, immunohistochemistry, cell culture, antibody, protein production and proven writing ability  (MS will be considered). Experience with surgical procedures (large animal and/or Vannucci neonatal rat models), neurobehavioral, MRI, radioactive materials, data acquisition, and statistical analysis is preferred.

Single cell RNA sequencing of the human and mouse placenta

 

The placenta in both human and mouse is comprised of multiple different cell types, including several different trophoblast populations. The distinct trophoblast types have different functions (endocrine or transport for example). This diverse population originates from progenitor and ultimately trophoblast stem cells. While some of the diversity is observable it has not been thoroughly defined and the precise relationships between the different lineages is incompletely known. Genomic analysis of single placental cells would characterise the identity and function of these different cells and define the number of different cell types present. Such data would allow the identification of cell-type specific transcripts which may be useful as specific markers for FACS and histological analysis. Data collected at different times in gestation, from genetically manipulated animals or from pathological pregnancies will reveal changes in the placental cell populations and the functional changes within them. Such data would be extremely powerful and would lead to major advances in placental biology. However, collecting this data is a considerable challenge but Drop-Seq (Macosko et al, Cell 2015, doi 10.1016/j.cell.2015.05.002) provides an accessible way to capture single cells with sets of uniquely barcoded primer beads within tiny droplets. This enables large-scale, highly parallel single-cell transcript profiling at reasonable cost. The aim of this project is to apply this technique to the human and mouse placenta. Relevant necessary skills include manipulation and analysis of nucleic acids ideally (but not necessarily next generation sequencing); cell isolation and characterization. The project will require considerable bioinformatic analysis and the post holder will be expected to work alongside a bioinformatician (already appointed).
