The Lamming Laboratory for the Molecular Physiology of Aging, jointly with the laboratory of Dr. Matthew Merrins, at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is recruiting a highly motivated new/recent Ph.D. graduate who wishes to develop an independent research career in Alzheimer's research. Dr. Lamming is focused on understanding how nutrient-responsive signaling pathways can be harnessed to promote health and longevity.
The successful postdoc candidate will spearhead research efforts on a recently funded, collaborative Alzheimer’s disease research project using early onset as well as novel late-onset mouse models of the disease. The project will take a geroscience approach to AD, examining the ability of agents that extend wild-type mouse longevity and improve insulin sensitivity to combat AD.
The successful candidate will have recently completed (or be planning to complete soon) a Ph.D. or M.D. with graduate research experience in electrophysiology, cell biology, and/or molecular biology. AD-specific experience is a bonus but not required.
