A postdoctoral fellow position is opening in the Schepens Eye Research Institute of Massachusetts Eye and Ear in collaboration with the Familial Dementia Neuroimaging Lab of the Massachusetts General Hospital to study vascular contributions to cognitive decline, cerebral small vessel disease (SVD), and CADASIL (and SVD caused by mutations in Notch 3) mentored by Joseph F. Arboleda-Velasquez, MD, PhD and Yakeel T. Quiroz. PhD with opportunities to collaborate with Drs. Reisa Sperling, Keith Johnson, and others in the Massachusetts Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center community.
The fellow will have access to uniquely rich databases from extraordinarily large human populations with cerebral small vessel disease and CADASIL for studies of longitudinal changes of neuroimaging, clinical markers, and biological fluid biomarkers.
Applicants should have a M.D., or Ph.D. in neuroscience/neurology, biomedical engineering, or a related discipline, and should have a demonstrated record of excellent scientific writing skills as well as outstanding interpersonal skills. Individuals with cross-disciplinary expertise in clinical marker and body fluid biomarker analyses, or neuroimaging (e.g. MRI, fMRI, PET) would be giving strong consideration.
The position is open immediately and applications will be accepted until the position is filled. A CV, letter of interest outlining experience and research goals, and contact information of three references should be sent to Joseph F. Arboleda-Velasquez M.D., Ph.D., Schepens Eye Research Institute
