Applications are invited for postdoctoral associate positions in the lab of Dr. Cristina Alberini, in the Center for Neural Science at New York University. The positions are on two research areas: 1) the characterization of mechanisms of protein degradation via autophagy and lysosomal targeting in learning and memory using rodent models. These mechanisms will be investigated in both healthy conditions and neuropsychiatric disease models as their elucidation may lead to potential treatments for neurodevelopmental disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. 2) the characterization of mechanisms underlying learning and memory in early development and their influence on adult behavior or predisposition to neuropsychiatric pathologies. Both in vivo rodent models and in vitro human and rodent brain cells will be employed with state-of-the-art technology. Potential collaboration with a Biotech company for drug development.
In compliance with NYC’s Pay Transparency Act, the annual base salary range for this position is $62,500- $70,000. New York University considers factors such as (but not limited to) the specific grant funding and the terms of the research grant when extending an offer.
PhD in Neuroscience, Biology or related field. Expertise in molecular mechanisms of autophagy, lysosomal targeting, vesicles trafficking in neurons are strongly preferred.
Please include a CV and cover letter describing prior experience and reasons for interest in the position. Please send an email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
