One ORISE research appointment is available within the Countermeasures Program, Neuroscience Branch at the United States Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense (USAMRICD). USAMRICD is the Department of Defense's lead laboratory for development of medical countermeasures against chemical threat agents. In support of this mission, the various labs within the institute research a variety of threat agents and countermeasures using multi-disciplinary approaches and in vitro, in silico, and in vivo models. This is a twelve month research appointment, the appoint terms may be renewed for additional twelve months appointments. U.S. Citizenship is required. MRICD is seeking recent BS or MS graduates with degrees in biology, psychology, neurobiology, neuroscience, chemistry or related field. The appointment includes, but is not limited to, the following:
The candidate chosen for this opportunity will assist with a project designed to identify novel therapeutics to stop nerve agent-induced seizures. The candidate will collaborate with internal and external partners to test the efficacy of newly-synthesized compounds in established rodent seizure models. The candidate will participate in many steps of the research process, including surgical preparation of rats and mice, evaluation and analysis of electroencephalographic records, and tissue collection and preparation for histopathological analysis. The ideal candidate is someone who enjoys being part of a large team, adapts easily to new situations, and demonstrates a vested interest in the underlying scientific rationale for the project. Prior experience with rats and/or mice is preferred.
