The laboratory of Dr. Ruben Vidal is seeking outstanding applicants for two postdoctoral positions to research the molecular mechanisms associated with neurodegenerative diseases. The projects will involve a range of biochemical, genetic and cell biology approaches that include (but are not limited to) mutagenesis, cloning, establishment of primary cell cultures, animal handling, stereotaxic surgery and characterization of mouse models. Successful candidates should have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent from an accredited institution and possess excellent understanding of basic neurobiology of neurodegenerative diseases and mechanisms of neurodegeneration.

Specific responsibilities include keen knowledge of experimental design, underlying scientific principles, the ability to analyze and assess results and preparation of data for papers and grants. The candidates are also expected to contribute to training of students as needed.

To apply submit a letter of application, summary of research experience and curriculum vitae that includes the contact information for 3 individuals willing to serve as a reference to: rvidal@iupui.edu
