The Terrando lab (http://anesthesiology.duke.edu/?page_id=838077) is interested in the mechanisms underlying postoperative neurocognitive disorders and novel strategies to modulate neuroinflammation and innate immunity.
The lab is well funded by multiple NIH/NIA grants that focus on exploring the impact of postoperative inflammation on neuroimmune interactions during aging and neurodegeneration.
We seek a highly motivated individual to address how dysregulated immunity drives cognitive deficits after common peripheral surgeries, leveraging various techniques, including advanced genomic, organ-on-chip technologies, animal models, and innovative therapies. The team is highly collaborative and integrated with multiple cores (within Duke) and collaborators across US institutions.
A PhD degree is required with training in neuroscience, immunology, biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, and/or a related field. Experience with mouse models, biochemistry/molecular biology, and behavioral assays is required. Familiarity with gene sequencing techniques/data analysis is welcomed.

The Terrando lab cares about the well-being of all members of our team. Everyone is treated equally, irrespective of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, citizenship, disabilities, political views, family status, and sexual orientation.
