Post-Doctoral Fellow



Job Description: An exciting opportunity is available for an outstanding postdoctoral Research Fellow candidate to contribute to research in Neurology This postdoctoral fellowship will provide a research training experience, designed to develop broad-based expertise in research in neuroscience and immunology, and to develop the skills required for independent research. The training occurs in the context of the activities in the Neurology department at the Los Angeles Biomedical Research Institute at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center (LA BioMed). Activities in the Center are focused on experimental research approaches in translational microbiome research, immunology techniques such as antibody generation, isolation and purification; immunoblotting, ELISA approaches and education, and knowledge transfer. LA BioMed is one of the country’s leading non-profit biomedical research institutes, located on the campus of Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles County. LA BioMed conducts biomedical research, trains young scientists and clinicians, and fulfills its mission to serve the underserved within the local community. The research fellowship is a full-time fixed-term appointment for one year in the first instance, and is renewable dependent on the candidate’s progress for at least three years. The major purpose of this training is to prepare the individual for a career in academia or industry in bioscience or medicine.
