Postdoctoral Research Associate in Molecular Mechanisms of Learning and
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the lab of Dr. Cristina Alberini,
in the Center for Neural Science at New York University.
The candidate will focus on the identification of molecular and cell biological
mechanisms underlying learning-dependent protein metabolism homeostasis
regulation, which is critical for the formation of long-term memories. The regulation
of protein metabolism is altered in several brain diseases such as
neurodevelopmental disorders and neurodegenerative diseases and the project
should be able to identify novel relevant mechanisms both in healthy brains and in
diseases. The project will employ rodent and/or human systems (iPSC) and multi-
level technical approaches to address questions at the molecular, cellular,
bioinformatic, and behavioral levels.
Salary will be commensurate with research experience and based on the NIH
guidelines for postdoctoral research associates, trainees, and fellows.
A PhD in Neuroscience, Biology or associated area is preferred. Experience in
molecular and cell culture techniques and animal behavior is strongly preferred.
