Postdoctoral Positions in Alzheimer’s disease

Two postdoctoral research positions are available in the laboratory of Christian Pike at the University of Southern California. Our lab is broadly focused on Alzheimer's disease, with the general goals of elucidating factors that regulate AD pathogenesis and pursuing translational approaches for the prevention and/or treatment of the disease. We seek hardworking, motivated researchers to lead studies in highly collaborative, multi-disciplinary NIH-funded projects that are investigating (1) the relationships among obesity, ApoE, and aging in driving development of AD, and (2) sex differences in the AD risk associated with ApoE4 with an emphasis on developmental factors. These studies employ a variety of approaches at the molecular, cellular, and behavioral levels. We focus on transgenic mouse models but these projects include components ranging from cell culture to human subjects.

The positions offer competitive salary and benefits that are commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in neuroscience, biology, endocrinology, or a related field. Ideal candidates will have a strong history of productivity and experience with animal models, standard molecular biology techniques, ApoE biology, glial biology, histology and immunohistochemistry, behavioral analyses, and/or bioinformatics.

Interested candidates should submit their CV, a cover letter describing their accomplishments and research interests, and contact information for three references to cjpike@usc.edu.
