Description

The Departments of Biomedical Engineering in the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Molecular Biology and Biochemistry in the School of Biological Sciences are currently accepting applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar in the area of the age-related metabolic basis of Alzheimer’s disease. You will perform experiments to alter the course of age-related metabolic changes in neurons in culture and in vivo from Alzheimer-like transgenic mice under the direction of Dr. Gregory J. Brewer (http://brewer.eng.uci.edu) and Dr. Charles Glabe (https://www.faculty.uci.edu/Glabe). The NIH funded project examines hippocampal changes with aging that affect Alzheimer’s disease. You will discover crucial metabolic interventions to alter the processing of beta-amyloid. The initial appointment will be full-time for a 24 month period. Renewal of the contract will be contingent on the availability of adequate funding and performance. Salary will be commensurate with experience.

The University of California, Irvine is ranked among the nation’s best research institutes with over $90,000,000 in current funding. Enrichment opportunities abound through the ADRC, the MIND Institute and the Center for the Neurobiology of Learning and Memory. Irvine has a pleasant climate, 5 miles from the beach.

Requirements: Ph.D. in neuroscience, cell biology, or mitochondrial bioenergetics and interest in Alzheimer’s disease. Fluorescence image analysis and transfection experience preferred.

Salary: $49,188 - $53,184
