Full-time Research Assistant in the Pediatric Neuroscience Research laboratory.  The laboratory is studying molecular mechanisms of brain injury and neuronal dysmaturation related to “mild” perinatal hypoxia.  The projects in the lab employ behavioral, molecular biology, electrophysiologic, and transgenic mouse approaches to define molecular pathways that regulate the development and function of neurons and networks after perinatal hypoxia and how that may lead to long term neurocognitive disability. We work collaboratively with several labs at OHSU and employ a variety of techniques primarily utilizing small animal models.

Dr. Stephen Back's laboratory is studying cellular and molecular mechanisms of human white matter injury related to aging and cognitive decline.  The project utilizes a unique collection of human autopsy brains from subjects identified with vascular brain injury, Alzheimers Disease and MRI-defined white matter hyperintensity signal abnormalities (see: Annals of Neurology 70:465-476, 2011; Journal of Neuropathology and Experimental Neurology, 75(6):539-554, 2016; Annals of Neurology 83:142-152, 2018). This NIH-funded study will define mechanisms of white matter inflammation and myelination failure.  The project focuses on cellular targets of injury in MRI-defined white matter lesions including oligodendrocyte progenitors, astrocytes and microglia within the context of the extracellular matrix molecule hyaluronic acid, which we have shown to play a role in myelination failure (see: Nature Med. 11:966-972, 2005; Preston et al., Ann Neurol.73:266-280, 2013; Journal of Clinical Investigation, 128: 2025-2041, 2018).    The ideal candidate will have an understanding of fundamental neuroscience concepts relevant to the  neurobiology of aging and be familiar with fundamentals of microscopy, immunohistochemistry, quantitative image analysis approaches or basic biostatistics. The project has the potential to involve tissue culture or animal model development for candidates who also have skills in cellular or molecular neurobiology. The candidate will interface with an established team (senior research associate and post-doctoral fellow) who routinely handle human autopsy tissues and analyze complex human data sets. The project involves integration with other sites in this multi-collaborator project that involves three teams of investigators across the U.S: (1) autopsy brain acquisition and neuropathology evaluation (Seattle, WA)); (2) studies related to the role of hyaluronic acid in myelination failure and inflammation using in vitro approaches (Hillsboro. OR); (3) human vascular biology studies (Augusta, GA). Daily responsibilities include designing and conducting experiments, data acquisition and analysis, record-keeping and attending weekly lab meetings to present research findings.
