The Taub Institute For Research on Alzheimer's Disease and the Aging Brian seeks to hire an Associate Research Scientist. The Associate Research Scientist's responsibility during the appointment will consist of studying neuroimmune interaction in Alzheimer's disease. This R01 funded project aims to study the mechanisms of defective proteolysis in immune cells in Alzheimer's disease at the transcriptomics and proteomics level.
We are primarily interested in a candidate with bioinformatics/computational biology experience and single-cell transcriptomic data analysis. In addition, wet-lab experience such as working with animal models and microglia primary cultures is preferred. However, the candidate will be able to develop wet-labs skills by working with a multidisciplinary and highly collaborative research team. The core focus areas are innate immunity, tau and amyloid pathology, single-cell/single-nucleus transcriptomics, proteomics.
At least 5 years postdoctoral experience including the study of the neuroimmune interaction in Alzheimer's disease.
