VIEW JOBS 3/22/2019 12:00:00 AM 2019-06-20T00:00 A postdoc position is open in the laboratory of Silke Nuber in the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases in the Department of Neurology at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School to study the role of * synuclein biology in mice and cell-culture models of Parkinson's disease (PD). The research focuses on determining whether gender or lipid-dependent changes that affect the normal * synuclein tetramer:monomer ratio early in Parkinson's pathology confer neuroprotection to specific neurons and brain regions. The PI's previous work demonstrated that upstream abrogation of normal * synuclein tetramers, a key protein in neuronal Lewy body pathology, induces a progressive and L-DOPA responsive motor decline and cortical and dopaminergic fiber loss in familial PD E46K ("1K") and "3K" mutant mice. The new project uses these unique mouse models to induce a robust, early-onset synucleinopathy. In addition, new models will be generated to analyze tetramer abrogation by other familial PD * synuclein mutations. Effects include behavioral testing as well as molecular, biochemical and neuropathological analyses. Candidates must have extensive experience working with mice and with neonate injections. Work with primary neurons and/or induced human neurons preferred. Only candidates with demonstrated expertise and publications in molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology and animal husbandry should apply. Compensation will follow NIH postdoctoral stipend levels and includes benefits. Applicants should submit a cover letter detailing their research experience and interests, a CV, a potential start date, and full contact information for three references. Requirements * A Ph.D. in neuroscience, biochemistry or a related biological field. * Excellent track record of publications, especially in neurodegenerative disease. * Extensive experience with mouse studies, including behavior. * Experience in molecular biology, pathology and biochemistry. * Cell culture (primary neurons and/or induced human neurons) experience preferred. * Self-motivated and driven individual who is able to work both independently and in a team-oriented environment and take responsibility for the overall management of the project. * Superb oral and written communication skills. * Minimum three-year commitment.
