Career Opportunities

October 2020

Our team is currently looking for highly motivated and collaborative postdoctoral fellows to work on the new “Resist Alzheimer’s Project”

Multiple positions are available for ambitious scientists to investigate the neural mechanisms of rare genetic variants linked to protection against Alzheimer’s dementia, including the APOE3 Christchurch mutation. Our international research group employs a multidisciplinary approach using experimental model systems, as well as clinical, biomarker and in vivo neuroimaging data to elucidate the normal function and physiological mechanisms of rare genetic variants associated with protection against Alzheimer’s dementia.

To learn more about our project, please see our most recent publication in Nature Medicine (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41591-019-0611-3).

Qualifications:
Applicants should have a doctoral degree (MD, PhD) in neuroscience, biomedical engineering, computational science or a related discipline, and should have a demonstrated record of excellent scientific writing skills as well as outstanding interpersonal skills. Individuals with cross-disciplinary expertise in biomarkers and/or neuroimaging (e.g. MRI, fMRI, PET) would be giving strong consideration.

Applications will be accepted until positions are filled. A CV, letter of interest outlining experience and research goals, and contact information of three references should be sent to Yakeel T. Quiroz, PhD at mapp@mgh.harvard.edu
