Cross-disciplinary postdoc to study neurodegenerative mechanisms
Postdoctoral position available immediately to investigate the molecular and cellular basis of neurodegeneration, with an emphasis on Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. The position is joint between the laboratory of Professors Mel Feany at Harvard Medical School and Ernest Fraenkel at MIT. These labs collaborate on a multidisciplinary approach integrating systems biology approaches, biochemistry, cell biology, genetics (Drosophila and vertebrate disease models, human) and analysis of human postmortem tissue. The successful applicant will have strong experimental training in a related area and a willingness to work closely with computational scientists.
No prior computational experience is expected.
Position includes substantial commitment to mentoring and professional development.
