Position description

The Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry in the School of Biological Sciences is currently accepting applications in the area of the cellular, temporal and spatial dynamics of amyloid deposition and pathogenesis in transgenic models of Alzheimer’s disease. The person in the position will perform experiments with transgenic mice under the direction of Dr. Charles Glabe (https://www.faculty.uci.edu/Glabe). This NIH-funded project uses cell population-specific labeling of proteome to study the contributions of different populations of neurons and glia to amyloid deposition and the temporal and spatial mechanisms of plaque deposition and maturation. This person also will work on the contributions of glia to amyloid deposition. Renewal of the appointment will be contingent on the availability of adequate funding and performance.

The University of California, Irvine is ranked among the nation’s best research institutes with over $90,000,000 in current funding. Enrichment opportunities abound through the ADRC, the MIND Institute and the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory. Irvine has a pleasant climate and is five miles from the beach.

Requirements
Ph.D. in neuroscience, cell biology, biochemistry or synthetic biology and an interest in Alzheimer’s disease. Super resolution fluorescence imaging and analysis and experience working with transgenic mice preferred. Experience in synthetic biology and proteomics is desirable. Candidate will be engaged in a program of advanced academic preparation and research training under the guidance of a faculty mentor/s, for a career typically outside the institution.

Qualified candidates should submit their curriculum vitae, a cover letter, and the names and contact information of three references to the following on-line recruitment URL:
