Post-Doctoral Research Fellow
Department of Neuroscience, Mayo Clinic Florida
Postdoctoral position available immediately to perform family and population-based genetic methods to identify and implicate genetic mutations in human neurodegenerative disease. Subsequent functional analysis may include molecular, biochemical, -Omics and cell-culture approaches. Current research projects are dedicated to understanding the molecular basis of Parkinson’s disease (PD), Lewy body dementia (DLB) and related movement disorders.
At present, we seek a highly motivated individual to carry out postdoctoral research. The successful candidate must be creative and must have the ability to find and apply innovative bioinformatics methods to biological questions. Individuals with a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. are eligible to apply. They must have experience in two or more of the following areas: molecular genetics, cell biology, genomics, computational biology/bioinformatics, and Next-generation sequencing technologies. They must have excellent verbal and written communication skills and a record of peer-reviewed publications. In the short term, the successful applicant will be encouraged to be part of a research team; in the longer term, the applicant is expected to seek and obtain independent funds.
