A postdoctoral position is available immediately for a research project examining the molecular mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease and developing novel treatments based on the physiological roles of AD-related proteins in synaptic plasticity. A PhD in neuroscience or related area is required. Expertise with mice is desirable as well as in other relevant areas such as molecular neurobiology, pharmacology, cell biology, biochemistry, immunocytochemistry, learning and memory, and behavioral tasks. We are looking for talented, motivated individuals who have independence, initiative, and a strong work ethic, as well as a proven track record of success in neuroscience.
Georgetown University has a vibrant neuroscience community with over fifty labs participating in the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience, and interactions with other institutions like nearby NIH. Georgetown's campus is located in Washington, DC, a world-class city with numerous cultural and lifestyle attractions.
Interested candidates should send a CV, a brief (1-page) statement of research interests, representative reprints, and the names and contact information of three references by email to Daniel Pak (Daniel.Pak@georgetown.edu). Review of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the position is filled.
