Postdoctoral Associates in Neurodegenerative Diseases: University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.
Postdoctoral positions are available to study in vivo pathogenic mechanisms of Parkinson’s disease (PD) and/or Alzheimer’s disease (AD) using transgenic mouse models. The projects include defining in vivo mechanisms of neurodegeneration, particularly the pathogenic role of Unfolded Protein Response/Cellular Protein Homeostasis, in vivo mechanisms of cell-to-cell transmission of protein aggregates, and therapy development. Projects will utilize state of art mouse genetics, cell biological and biochemical approaches, and quantitative neuropathology. Candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree with strong background in relevant Biomedical Sciences, including Neuroscience, Cell/Molecular Biology, and Biochemistry. Significant experiences in neurodegenerative disease and animal experimentation are highly preferred.
Candidates should email C.V. (including citizenship/VISA information), brief statement of prior research and future goals (1-2 pages), and contact information for 3 referees to Michael K. Lee, Ph.D. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
