Postdoctoral Position in Neurobiology
The Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience at Rutgers University is currently accepting applications for a postdoctoral position to address: (1) how mitochondrial quality and bioenergetics modulate cellular processes essential for the activity of glial cells under physiological and pathophysiological conditions; (2) how inter-mitochondrial contact dynamics is controlled in healthy and diseased neurons; (3) how autophagy-lysosomal function is regulated in neurons and how deregulation in this key clearance system triggers neurodegeneration and functional deficits. Given that autophagy-lysosomal failure and bioenergetic deficits have been implicated in the pathogenesis of major neurodegenerative diseases, studies on these topics will yield fundamental knowledge which can advance our understanding of disease mechanisms and identify new therapeutic targets.
Candidates for this position should hold a Ph.D. degree with a strong research background in neurobiology, at least in one of these areas: membrane trafficking and metabolism, organelle dynamics and transport, mitochondrial quality control and bioenergetics, glial biology, and neurogenerative disease models. Interested individuals should send a CV, a personal statement describing research interests, and names and details of 3 references to email@example.com. Att: Qian Cai, M.D., Ph.D. Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, Nelson Biological Laboratories, Busch Campus, 604 Allison Road, Piscataway, NJ 08854.
