Grad student with Dr. Jason Plemel: understanding regeneration associated microglia – University of Alberta

A grad student position is available in the lab of Dr. Jason Plemel. The lab is focused on understanding how one cell, microglia, can be both important in promoting regeneration, but also a contributor to neurodegenerative conditions. The Plemel lab uses tools like transgenic mice, in vivo models of white matter injury, flow cytometry, cell culture and single-cell RNA sequencing to understand how microglia behave in disease. Start dates are negotiable, but we would like a new student in by September 2019. Students interested in neurological disorders, especially those white matter diseases like Multiple Sclerosis, are encouraged to apply. Please send an updated CV, transcript (unofficial is suitable) and contact information for two academic references to To see the website, please visit (
