The Department of Neurology has an immediate need to fill a two-year postdoctoral fellow position with the Colorado Aging Brain laboratory who is interested in neuroimaging analysis of cognition, inflammation, and healthy aging. The goal of the group is to elucidate how immune dysregulation relates to cognitive and neuroimaging outcomes in late life, with a special emphasis on both risk and protective factors for Alzheimer’s disease.
