Post-doc Positions in Neurodegenerative Disease’s Mechanisms, United States

Posted 3 months ago

The Ronald M. Loeb Center for Alzheimer’s Disease at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is instrumental in the Mount Sinai Health System’s commitment to advancing the research, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of this insidious disease. Our work spans a multisite network of clinics and practices that treat more than 3,000 patients every year, and includes translational research programs that have been awarded more than $200 million from the National Institutes of Health and other agencies. Our mission is to develop state-of-the-art Alzheimer’s disease treatment using breakthroughs in genomics, neurobiology, stem cell engineering, and other disciplines. The Loeb Center plays a major role in advancing the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease in New York and globally. 

Post-doc positions in neurodegenerative disease’s mechanisms and iPSC models of the human brain

The Blanchard laboratory is looking for highly skilled and enthusiastic scientists to drive our efforts dissecting how genetics and the environment influence the human brain’s susceptibility to neurodegenerative diseases.

We are looking for highly motivated and ambitious scientists to apply a wide range of experimental and computational approaches to investigate the pathogenic mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s Disease and develop novel therapeutic approaches. The Blanchard lab engineers iPSC-based models of the human brain and applies them to dissect cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying genetic and environmental risk for neurodegeneration. We complement our in vitro studies with analysis of post-mortem human brains and mouse models. We are located in the Nash Family Department of Neuroscience at Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai, one of the leading neuroscience departments in the US. We offer an intellectually rich environment with access to cutting-edge facilities, technology, and ideas.

Please visit the lab’s website for an overview of our research interests: http://labs.neuroscience.mssm.edu/project/blanchard-lab/

Qualifications:

  • A recent Ph.D. graduate with demonstrated experience in any of the following fields: cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, neuroscience, and developmental/stem cell biology, bioengineering.
  • The ideal candidates will have experience in the following research areas: iPSC cell culture and differentiation; molecular and cell biology; CRISPR, bioengineering, confocal microscopy; calcium imaging and optogenetics; mouse models; computational biology, single cell/nuclei RNAseq.
