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, MGH and 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 and clinical and molecular neuroimaging data to elucidate the normal function and physiological mechanisms of rare genetic variants associated with AD. 

To learn more about our project, please see our most recent publication (LINK HERE). 

Qualifications:

A PhD degree with demonstrated experience in any of the following fields: cell biology, biochemistry, or neuroscience. At least one publication in these fields would be required.

The ideal candidates will have experience in any of the following research areas: cell biology in neuronal and/or glial culture models, iPS cell models; proteomics; genomics; development and characterization of animal models including behavior and histopathology. 

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.
