Multiple positions available at the University of Central Florida
A group of established investigators recently join the University of Central Florida (UCF) Medical College to form a competitive research team studying the mechanisms of neurodegeneration in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson's disease (PD). The team uses genetically engineered rats as a relevant model for the in vivo study of neurodegeneration associated with genetic mutations discovered by the team and by the other groups. Team members have documented findings in the journals including PLoS Genetics (2010 and 2011), the Journal of Clinical Investigation (2012), EMBO J (2013), PNAS (2013), and Acta Neuropath (2015). The team is funded by multiple NIH grants and has received supports from the UCF. The team invites experienced persons to join as a key member in the journey of discovery on disease mechanisms and therapies.
Post-doctors: Post-doctor positions are immediately available to candidates who have experienced one or more of the following research activities: 1) characterizing transgenic or knockout mouse or rat models for neurological diseases; 2) characterizing protein-protein interaction with biochemical and molecular approaches; 3) studying synaptic function with molecular and physiological approaches; and 4) studying autophagy or proteasome dysfunction in disease conditions. Publication in a related field is required.
The University of Central Florida is located in Orlando of the sunny state Florida. The medical school is quite new and is rapidly growing. Interested persons are sincerely invited to apply for the positions. Please send cover-letter and CV to Dr. Xugang Xia at email@example.com
