Senior Scientist, Idiopathic Peripheral Neuropathies

InVitro Cell Research, LLC

This is a Contract position in Nyc, NY posted December 3, 2019.

InVitro Cell Research (ICR) is dedicated to solving some of the most difficult problems in aging and age-related disease, including peripheral neuropathies.

Our goals include developing new interventions to slow, halt and reverse neuropathic pathology and developing novel biomarkers to track disease progression as well as safety and efficacy of potential interventions.

Finding biomarkers that contribute to successfully determine eitiologies of so-called idiopathic (cryptogenic) peripheral neuropathies is also critical to our mission.

We’re hiring exceptionally talented, driven and dedicated scientists with expertise in peripheral neuropathies.

These roles will include a combination of bench
– (“wetlab”) and computer-based research.

We’re looking for out-of-the-box thinkers who can solve mysteries relating to peripheral neuropathies and bring them out of the “idiopathic” darkness, discover their cause(s) and make them amenable to treatment and neuroregenerative interventions.

ICR is a growing company with a small-group vibe and a highly collaborative working environment .

We provide our scientists with the state-of-the-art resources they need to leverage their time and skills most effectively, empowering small teams of scientists to accomplish what would otherwise require much larger teams.

Want to join us?

Please keep reading to learn more and apply.

Please note: position title and compensation commensurate with experience.

As an ICR scientist working on peripheral neuropathies, you’ll get to: Initiate novel research into causes of sensorimotor polyneuropathy and small fiber neuropathies in a personalized medicine research setting, including tests of differential diagnostics/biomarkers to distinguish between potential contributing causes and determine likely contributors Develop experimental protocols for testing various therapeutic interventions to stop and reverse the neuopathology of sensorimotor polyneuropathies and small fiber neuropathies Contribute novel ideas for interventions and practical developmental strategies to deliver them Collaborate with internal and external groups to maximize productivity and performance We would love to hear from you if you background includes at least the following: A PhD, MD or both in a biomedical science field At least 10 years experience researching causes of and therapeutics for sensorimotor polyneuropathies or small fiber neuropathies Extensive experience in bench molecular neuroscience and small molecule biology, cell biology and neuronal culture experience; knowledge and experience in viral biology and genetics; knowledge of autoimmune disease, human immunology, and general neuroscience/neurophysiology; knowlege of human vascular biology and endocrinology Experience with human stem cells and iPS cell-derived neuronal precursor cells and neuronal cells; extensive experience with human stem cell culture and differentiation It would be great if you also have: Expertise in and working knowledge of the peripheral and central nervous system biology and disease Expert knowledge in experimental therapeutics and the therapeutic pipeline landscape for sensorimotor polyneuropathies and small fiber neuropathies, with an emphasis on practical, actionable interventions to slow, stop and reverse (regenerate) damaged nerves General and working knowledge of aging biology, adult stem cells and regenerative and personalized medicine Additional requirements: An easy going, friendly personality with low ego Excellent English-language communication skills Ability to work in the United States without sponsorship
