A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratories of Einar M. Sigurdsson and Hyung Don Ryoo at NYU Grossman School of Medicine in the heart of Manhattan. A candidate with a recent Ph.D. degree and a strong background in Drosophila genetics is sought to participate in studies on pathogenesis of tauopathies, such as Alzheimer's disease, and to examine tau-targeting therapies in Drosophila models. Opportunities exist for conducting similar experiments focusing on α-synuclein, and to advance these studies to related human cellular and mouse models. Experience in neurodegeneration research with a focus on the tau protein or other protein aggregates and/or biology of antibodies would be beneficial but is not required. Creativity, fluent English, and excellent writing skills are desirable. To apply and for further information, please contact Hyung Don Ryoo at HyungDon.Ryoo@nyulangone.org and Einar M. Sigurdsson at Einar.Sigurdsson@nyulangone.org
