The Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases (IND), led by Nobel Laureate Stanley B. Prusiner, is seeking motivated postdoctoral scientists to work in translational neuroscience.
The IND’s mission is to advance the understanding of neurodegenerative disease and translate those discoveries into treatments for conditions including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Scientists at the IND work in a multidisciplinary environment, which brings together molecular, cellular, structural and computational biologists with pharmacologists and synthetic chemists, to support an extraordinary program bridging basic science and drug discovery. To advance our research, the IND is looking for postdoctoral fellows in neuropharmacology, molecular and cell biology, mass spectrometry and structural biology.A background is neurodegenerative diseases is not a requirement; the IND is looking for candidates who can demonstrate creative thinking that will contribute to its multidisciplinary approach and collaborative culture.
The IND is housed in the state-of-the-art Sandler Neurosciences Center on the UCSF Mission Bay campus, and is part of the new UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences.
Applicants should hold or be close to completing an M.D. or Ph.D. degree. Successful candidates will have demonstrated progress toward an independent research career, including quality publications and presentations at scientific conferences.
Interested candidates attending Neuroscience 2017 should contact Dr. Kurt Giles at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional Salary Information: UCSF offers a postdoctoral minimum salary two steps above NIH scale. More information on benefits and the postdoctoral program can be found at https://postdocs.ucsf.edu/.
