Brown Lab Welcomes Applications for Research Assistant Position

Dr. Craig Brown’s laboratory in the Division of Medical Sciences is now accepting applications for a Full-time Research Assistant position to beginning in the fall of 2019. Dr. Brown’s research program is interested in the cellular and molecular mechanisms of brain plasticity and repair. To address these questions, the lab employs a multi-disciplinary approach, imaging the structure and function of neurons, microglial and endothelial cells in the living brain in tandem with genetic, biochemical, pharmacological and behavioural approaches.
