A postdoctoral position is available for an appropriate candidate to be mentored by David K. Simon, M.D. Ph.D., Professor of Neurology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. The project will focus on translational research in mouse models of Parkinson’s disease, including alpha-synuclein overexpressing mice. Stereotaxic injection of AAV vectors and other strategies will be used to test the neuroprotective potential of targeting PGC-1alpha (a transcriptional coactivator) and Pitx3 (a transcriptional factor that regulates the dopaminergic phenotype).
Must have a PhD and/or MD or equivalent degrees. Experience in neuroanatomy, molecular biology, and mouse models is required. Only candidates with relevant experience should apply. Salary will depend on experience. Please send an email briefly describing your research experience and interests. Include a CV and contact information for 2 or 3 reference: email@example.com
Additional Salary Information: Salary will depend on years of experience, consisent with the NIH recommended postdoctoral fellow salaries. Fringe benefits will be provided in addition to the salary.
