The Young-Pearse laboratory focuses on the identification of the mechanistic causes of neurodegenerative and developmental disorders of the nervous system, with the ultimate goal of identifying novel targets for therapeutic interventions for these diseases. There is an urgent need for new treatments for psychiatric disorders. However, understanding mental illness at a cell and molecular level is a daunting task, and the field is not yet ready to design drugs targeting the molecular pathways underlying complex disorders of the brain. The identification and study of convergent molecular pathways and cellular processes relevant to human brain diseases will facilitate progress toward the development of new interventions. To this end, the approach involves integrating expression and molecular profiling data from the human brain with genetic and clinical data to identify candidate genes and pathways with high likelihood of relevance to complex brain disorders.

We strive for impactful science in a collaborative and collegial environment. We consider career development in basic science and translational medicine core to our mission. Our postdoctoral fellows will fully benefit from the deep connections to premier academic labs, hospitals and biotech companies that we have established in the rich Boston biomedical environment. The lab is located in the Building for Transformative Medicine, housing state-of-the-art laboratory and clinical facilities adjacent to Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

Our salary and benefits package will be competitive and commensurate with the cost of living. Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School are Equal Opportunity Employers.
