Purpose: UC Davis Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (ADRC) (https://health.ucdavis.edu/alzheimers/)/Jin Lab is looking for highly motivated postdocs to work in its Biomarker Core, as well as the newly funded Repository Core of the national Diverse VCID project (https://health.ucdavis.edu/alzheimers/news/news-grant-for-dementia.html). Qualified scientists who already have over 5 years postdoc experience may be considered for the rank of Project Scientist.  

Scope of study: The candidate will use her/his expertise to design and execute biomarker approaches, protocols, and optimize quantification and analytic methods. The candidate will be assigned to analyze omics data generated from biomarker or basic science laboratories. The omics platforms include bulk or single cell transcriptomics, proteomics, glycomics, glycoproteomics, lipidomics, and metabolomics. The scientific goal is to identify disease mechanisms and develop new methods of disease detection.

Candidate qualification: Ph.D. (or M.D. with substantial benchside research experience), who has neuroscience, biochemistry/molecular biology, or cell biology backgrounds. Experience in bioinformatics is required. Experience in single cell transcriptomics analysis or biomarker investigation is preferred.  

Environment: The candidate will work in Dr. Jin’s laboratory/Biomarker Core and will have interactions with investigators in the UC Davis Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center (http://alzheimer.ucdavis.edu/), West Coast Metabolomics Center (https://metabolomics.ucdavis.edu/), Genome Center (https://genomecenter.ucdavis.edu/), and Glycomics facilities (https://lebrilla.faculty.ucdavis.edu/research/clinical-glycomics/). Dr. Jin’s laboratory is funded by NIA, NINDS, NICHD, and Alzheimer’s Association.
