Description

Mt. Sinai is seeking a motivated and passionate individual to work on neurodegenerative tauopathies, including Alzheimer's disease, primary age-related tauopathy, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy. The project involves correlating genetic and molecular changes in human brain tissues with disease and building novel cellular models (e.g., iPSC and others) to characterize mechanisms. The candidate will join a highly active collaborative research program within the Mount Sinai Alzheimer’s disease research center and the Ronald M. Loeb Center for Alzheimer’s disease.

Interested individuals will be encouraged to develop an independent research program and eventually apply for independent grant funding (e.g,. F32, K99/R00, etc).

Requirements

The applicant should have a recent Ph.D., M.D., or both.

The successful candidate must have experience with common molecular and cellular biology techniques (e.g., immunoblotting, cell culture, viral and plasmid vectors, PCR, RNA-seq, QPCR, tissue sectioning, immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization and fluorescence microscopy).
