Open Postdoctoral Position: Brain Vascular Biology

The Department of Physiology of the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine at National University of Singapore has immediate opening for postdoctoral positions in Neuroscience, with specialization in Brain Vascular Biology. As part of a University-wide initiative on mechanisms of neuronal and synaptic injury in ageing and neurodegenerative diseases under the direction of Profs. Carlos Ibanez and Edward Koo, we are seeking talented and enthusiastic individuals to join our laboratories for postgraduate training.

Under the direction of Drs. Carlos Ibanez and Edward Koo, this project will focus on studies of the role of BDNF signaling in physiological and injury responses of cellular elements of the brain vascular system. More information about these laboratories can be found HERE and HERE. This is an exciting opportunity for individuals who have received a doctoral degree within the past five years and with a strong background in vascular biology or cellular neurobiology to receive further training in basic and translational studies in neurodegenerative diseases.


  • Doctoral degree (PhD) in biological sciences
  • Experience on mouse models and neuroscience research
  • Experience on vascular biology studies is preferred
  • Able to work independently with precision and possess good organizational skills

Our labs are located on the Medical School campus of the National University of Singapore. There is close integration among the core laboratories of this University supported strategic initiative in neuroscience. This provides for an exciting environment to pursue neuroscience research and a great opportunity for Singaporeans, Asian expats wishing to return somewhere closer home, or anyone interested in experiencing the Asian culture, in one of the most developed and exciting countries in the region.

Interested individuals should send application including cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, and contact information, and provide names of three references to Prof. Carlos Ibanez .

Deadline is March 20, 2015.
