Postdoctoral opportunity in Alzheimer’s disease – Microglial Biology / Omics / Advanced Microscopy

Position: Post-doctoral Position

Deadline: 1 July 2022

Employment Start Date: 1 July 2022

Contract Length: 3 or more years

City: Tampa

Country: United States

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

Department:

Description:

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available immediately for a highly motivated individual to participate in Alzheimer’s disease research. The successful candidate will investigate cellular and molecular mechanisms of AD risk factors and AD-associated microglial and neuronal abnormalities using transgenic and knock-out mouse models, rodent primary cultures, and human iPSC-derived neurons and glia.

Ambitious scientists who join our team will avail themselves of the opportunity to work in a dynamic environment and train with experienced molecular, cellular, and translational neuroscientists investigating various aspects of nervous system function and dysfunction.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or MD., Ph.D. in a related field, and a strong background in synaptic physiology or advanced microscopy applications. Only candidates with demonstrated experience – by way of at least one publication – in microglial biology, super-resolution / live-cell imaging, neuronal protein trafficking, genomics/proteomics/bioinformatics, or iPSC technology will be considered for these positions. Preference will be given to candidates with interdisciplinary training and a strong publication record, and researchers with substantial postdoctoral experience will be considered for an appropriate level of appointment.
