Description

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratories of Einar M. Sigurdsson and Hyung Don Ryoo at NYU Grossman School of Medicine. A candidate with a recent Ph.D. degree and a strong background in Drosophila genetics is sought to participate in studies on pathogenesis of tauopathies, and to examine tau-targeting therapies in Drosophila models. Opportunities exist for conducting similar experiments focusing on α-synuclein, and to advance these studies to related human cellular and mouse models. Experience in neurodegeneration research with a focus on the tau protein or other protein aggregates and/or biology of antibodies would be beneficial. Creativity, fluent English, and excellent writing skills are desirable. To apply and for further information, please contact Hyung Don Ryoo at HyungDon.Ryoo@nyulangone.org and Einar M. Sigurdsson at Einar.Sigurdsson@nyulangone.org
