Post-Doctoral Fellow- “Resist Alzheimer’s Project” (multiple positions)
We are looking for highly motivated and collaborative postdoctoral fellows to work with us on the “Resist Alzheimer’s Project” at the Harvard Medical School-affiliated hospitals, Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Massachusetts Eye and Ear (MEEI), in Boston, MA.
Multiple positions are available for ambitious scientists to investigate the neural mechanisms of rare genetic variants linked to protection against Alzheimer’s dementia, including the APOE3 Christchurch mutation. Our international research group employs a multidisciplinary approach using experimental model systems, human brain tissues, iPS-derived models, as well as clinical, biomarker and in vivo molecular neuroimaging data to elucidate the normal function and physiological mechanisms of rare genetic variants associated with protection against Alzheimer’s dementia.
To learn more about our project, please see our most recent publication in Nature Medicine (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-019-0611-3).
A PhD degree with demonstrated experience in any of the following fields: cell biology, stem cells, biochemistry, bioengineering, brain imaging, neuropsychology and/or neuroscience. At least one first-author publication in these fields is required.
The ideal candidates will have experience in any of the following research areas: cell biology in neuronal and/or glial culture models; proteomics; development of genetic animal models; clinical research; neuropsychology; neuroimaging; neuroscience.
Description of a Successful Candidate:
A self-motivated and driven individual who is able to exhibit exceptional research productivity and take responsibility for independent management of a project.
A detail-oriented researcher who still keeps a clear grasp of the big picture.
A team player who proactively shares knowledge and expertise with lab members.
Excellent written and oral communication skills.
To apply, email your CV, a statement of your research experience and interests, and the contact information of 2-3 references to email@example.com
