Description

The Unit of Clinical and Translational Neuroscience in the Intramural Program of the National Institute on Aging (NIA) is seeking applicants for a postdoctoral research fellowship. The current work has a major emphasis on understanding the metabolic basis of Alzheimer’s disease pathogenesis using quantitative metabolomics of brain and blood tissue samples. The NIA employs several computational methodologies (i.e., biostatistical, epidemiologic, computer science) on large longitudinal clinical, neuroimaging, cognitive, and metabolomics/proteomics datasets.

The NIA is also exploring in-silico approaches to drug repurposing in AD combining analyses of Electronic Health Record (EHR) data with large publicly available gene expression datasets.

The NIA offers 1) the opportunity to publish extensively in high-impact journals in the medical science fields and 2) collaboration and support in analytic and neuroscience fields within the lab and across the NIA. Salary is commensurate with other fellowship opportunities, and the position is renewable up to five years.
