In vivo techniques including generating animal models, tissue extraction, brain biochemistry, stereotactic mouse injections, and drug administration will be performed on various mouse models. The candidate is expected to lead these projects independently and manage mouse colonies to address major questions regarding the emergence of age-related Alzheimers pathology and mechanisms of disease pathogenesis using, for example, high-resolution brain clearing approaches, light-sheet microscopy, single-cell omics approaches, and viral gene therapy-based approaches. Meticulous record keeping, presentation skills, and ability to collaborate in a team and multi-lab environment at UNC-Chapel Hill are required. Candidates must have in-vivo expertise in biochemical and/or molecular analyses of the brain and related tissues, a molecular biology background sufficient to independently lead this project, and also experience working with animal models. The successful applicant must have a demonstrated track record including published first-author papers in biological science or related field of study. An advanced PhD. in life sciences is preferred.PhD is required. The University Of North Carolina Chapel Hill NC
