University of South Alabama Posted Positions


Postdoctoral fellow

A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Department of Physiology and Cell Biology at the University of South Alabama (USA) College of Medicine. The laboratory investigates neuronal signaling in the brain, using in vitro and in vivo mouse models. The current research emphasis is on the contribution from acid-sensitive GPCRs and acid-sensing ion channels (ASICs) to neuron function, ischemic injury, and neurodegenerative diseases (e.g., Wang 2020 Stroke doi:10.1161/STROKEAHA.120.031479).

We are looking for highly motivated postdoctoral fellow with background/interest in neuroscience. The candidate should have a recent PhD with a research focus in neuroscience, molecular and cell biology, GPCR signaling, or channel physiology. Good communication skills and ability to work effectively in a team are expected. Previous experience with cell and neuron culture, immunohistochemistry, neurodegenerative diseases, rodent stroke models, rodent behavioral analysis, confocal imaging, molecular biology, and protein analysis preferred. Interested candidates should submit a CV along with the names of 3 references to Dr. Xiangming Zha (

Postdoctoral Researcher – Small Community/Decentralized Wastewater Systems

Job Type:  Post-Doc
Job Rank:  Postdoctoral Researcher
Job Institution:   University of South Alabama, Department of Civil, Coastal, & Environmental Engineering

Job Description:
The Department of Civil, Coastal, & Environmental Engineering at the University of South Alabama invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher position for in the area of Small Community/Decentralized Wastewater Systems.  The postdoctoral scholar will work on a multi-university team funded by the prestigious Columbia World Projects endowment looking to evaluate and demonstrate decentralized wastewater models (financial, technological, management entity, etc.) for small/rural community viability.    The project is also looking to develop data and tools that allow an exploration of the financial and technical applicability of decentralized wastewater collection/treatment/reuse systems as a function of scale. We see this as the direction for the future in both rural and urban environments. The candidate of interest would have skills in decentralized wastewater system technologies, network optimization, financial analysis, smart systems, sensors & control, and be adept in spatio-temporal data analytics.  We are seeking an independent researcher with good communication skills (to interact with academic partners and local communities) and an ability to work on a highly collaborative team.

Applicants must be eligible to work in the U.S. The University of South Alabama is an EO/AA Employer – minorities/females/veterans/disabilities/sexual orientation/gender identity
