The National Institute on Aging (NIA), a major research component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is recruiting for a Postdoctoral Fellow position in the Human Neuroscience Section (HNS) of the Laboratory of Clinical Investigation (LCI) in Baltimore, MD. The candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience, Molecular Biology or related fields. Alternatively, we will consider M.D. or M.D./Ph.D. candidates that have completed residency training in Neurology or prior to residency training, with a demonstrated track record in Neuroscience research. The candidates will participate in basic and translational research focused on the role of Extracellular Vesicles (EVs) in Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.

The Human Neuroscience Section is focused on investigating the role of EVs in Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases and their potential as biomarkers and therapeutic targets. Candidates should have a track record in basic and translational research in Neuroscience and/or EV research. They should have experience with various Molecular Biology techniques (ELISA, WB, PCR, microscopy, FACS, potentially also involving cellular cultures, hIPSCs, and animal models), and an interest in the mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases and the role of EVs in their pathogenesis. Postdoctoral Fellows will be expected to further ongoing EV biomarker discovery and validation studies, design and conduct mechanistic studies to determine the underlying biology involving EVs, and pursue therapeutic directions. Enthusiastic candidates with a solid work ethic and strong scientific writing skills are strongly encouraged to apply. Salary is commensurate with experience and accomplishments. 

The NIA IRP offers an outstanding training environment, and the LCI aims to create a technically diverse, dynamic and enjoyable research environment. Interested applicants should send curriculum vitae, bibliography, a statement of research interests and three letters of recommendation to Dimitrios Kapogiannis, M.D., Chief, Human Neuroscience Section, 3001 S. Hanover St., NM-535, Baltimore, MD 21225, USA. Email: kapogiannisd@mail.nih.gov. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
