Postodoctoral fellow –molecular underpinnings of dopamine neurons vulnerability in Parkinson’s disease
We seek highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to join immediately a dynamic research team committed to collaboration, open science, and communication to study the vulnerability of dopamine neurons in Parkinson’s disease (PD). The postdoctoral fellow will be part of a scientific consortium (Aligning Science Across Parkinson's https://parkinsonsroadmap.org/roadmap/) across different institutions, disciplines, and geographies with numerous opportunities for professional development .
Candidates who have graduated with a Ph.D. or MD/Ph.D. degrees with a record of publications (including preprints) are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate should have solid training in neuroscience. The laboratory employs cutting-edge molecular (cell-type specific proteomics, transcriptomics, biochemical approaches), imaging (3D super-resolution microscopy), and functional (2-photon electrophysiology) approach.
The laboratory is located in the downtown Chicago Northwestern campus in a vibrant neighborhood and is part of the Feinberg School of Medicine. Northwestern University is one of the top-ranked universities in the country, and it has an excellent neuroscience/neurodegeneration program. An interactive, supportive environment supported by a strong network of research services and more than 60 core facilities, along with a strong institutional commitment to pioneer research, ensures significant scientific breakthroughs. As such, candidates should be highly motivated and energetic to perform innovative research projects. Salary and benefits will be competitive.
