Job Description

We are seeking two highly motivated, self-sufficient postdoctoral fellows to drive NIH-funded innovative research projects forward in the lab. The fellow will work with a multidisciplinary team of investigators and clinical scientists within an interdisciplinary neuroscience research group at the Bond Life Sciences Center. Major focuses of the research will be on examining the molecular mechanisms and identification of critical factors mediating neurodegeneration associated with the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders such as spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and Alzheimer's disease (AD). The findings are leveraged to develop effective cellular and molecularly targeted therapy as well as diagnosis toward translation into clinical application.


A PhD is required by start of the appointment.

Candidates will be evaluated on their experience in cellular or molecular biology, genetic and animal work as well as experience in the field of neurosciences.
