Description

The lab is looking for highly motivated postdoc(s) with experience in Alzheimer’s disease and tau pathology. By using a new ontogenetic approach, the fellow(s) will model tau neurofibrillary tangle formation, followed by a drug screening to prevent tau aggregation.

The lab has been researching the cell-specification process using human pluripotent stem cells, particularly nervous system and skeletal muscle cells, to study human diseases and develop new drugs.

Requirements

Previous experience in human pluripotent stem cells is not required (but basic cell culture experience will be great). The lab values value "non-stem cell" expertise, tau pathology, and Alzheimer's disease studies.
