Description

The Butler Hospital Memory and Aging Program (MAP), directed by Stephen Salloway, is recruiting two postdoctoral fellows for an M.D. or Ph.D. at the Alpert Medical School of Brown University. The fellowship is one or two years with an anticipated start date of July, 2019.

The MAP, a leading AD clinical research center, is committed to accelerating drug development for AD and to training young investigators for careers in AD research. The position combines clinical work and research in the Memory and Aging Program with protected time for independent scholarly activity. The research focus is on development of biomarkers and new treatments for prevention and early intervention. Neuropsychology has a strong presence at Brown and the MAP is developing novel cognitive assessments and using fluid and imaging biomarkers to create new algorithms to identify and disclose AD risk. Brown also offers a rich multi-disciplinary training environment, and the fellow will have the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from many departments on translational research in AD and neurodegenerative disorders.
