Job ID: 117544

Postdoctoral opportunity in Alzheimer’s disease –Spatial Transcriptomics / Proteomics / Molecular Pathology

Position: Post-doctoral Position

Deadline: 23 March 2024

Employment Start Date: 1 April 2024

Contract Length: 3 or more years

City: Tampa

Country: United States

Institution: University of South Florida, USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute

Department: Molecular Medicine


An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available immediately for a highly motivated individual to participate in Alzheimer’s disease research. The successful candidate will apply cutting-edge spatial transcriptomics and proteomics strategies to investigate cellular and molecular mechanisms of AD risk factors and AD-associated microglial and neuronal abnormalities. We seek candidates with previous experience in omics approaches or advanced neuropathology, interdisciplinary training, and a strong publication record.

Ambitious scientists who join our team will have the opportunity to work in a dynamic environment and train with experienced molecular, cellular, and translational neuroscientists investigating various aspects of Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological disorders.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or MD., Ph.D. in a related field, and a strong background in mouse models of neurodegenerative diseases, relevant neuronal-glial in vitro systems, or advanced microscopy applications. Only candidates with demonstrated experience – by way of at least one publication – in genomics/proteomics/ bioinformatics investigation of neurodegenerative diseases, molecular biology of the synapse, microglial biology, or super-resolution / live-cell imaging will be considered. Researchers with substantial postdoctoral experience will be recommended for an appropriate level of appointment.
