Description

The goal of the Karch lab is to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying Alzheimer's disease and other tauopathies using genetic, molecular, and cellular techniques in traditional cell and mouse models as well as stem cell models. The lab is seeking a postdoctoral fellow for projects related to the functional characterization of genetic risk variants in stem cell models of tauopathies. Projects involving functional genomics are also available.

Requirements

Candidates should have a strong background in biochemical and molecular techniques, and a Ph.D. or M.D. degree with less than five years of postdoctoral experience. Highly motivated individuals with a record of productive research are encouraged to apply.
