Postdoctoral Position in Sleep Dysfunction and Neurodegenerative Diseases

Job Summary

The fellow will conduct research investigating the pathological changes in subcortical sleep-wake nuclei that occur in Alzheimer’s disease and other tauopathies. The fellow will obtain advanced training in neuroanatomy, neurohistology and quantitative human neuropathology in order to facilitate experiments geared toward understanding the biological basis of sleep disturbances presented clinically in patients with AD and related disorders. The environment will further provide opportunities to pursue correlations between brain pathology and antemortem clinical or imaging findings.

Required qualifications

PhD in neuroscience or related fields and a career interest in neurodegenerative disease. Preference will be given to applicants with prior training in mammalian anatomy and quantitative stereology and a capacity to blend neuroanatomy with molecular biological approaches, but all interested applicants are encouraged to apply.

Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis until the position is filled. Please direct inquiries to Dr. Grinberg by sending a letter of interest, CV and at least three references to [email protected].
