Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow for Neuroscience. Under the direction of the Principal Investigator (Dr. Hyung Jin Ahn), the Postdoctoral Fellow will be responsible for conducting research focused on studying the crosstalk between the cerebrovascular system and the nervous system to understand molecular mechanism underlying cerebrovascular deficits in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Our laboratory recently developed a novel fiber optic method for measuring vascular reactivity in freely moving animals. Therefore, the Postdoctoral Fellow will be primarily engaged in conducting experiments focused on the molecular mechanism underlying cerebrovascular deficits in AD pathogenesis, using fiberoptic spectroscopy combined with chemogenetics, in vivo two photon microscopy, MRI and immunohistochemistry in genetically modified mouse/rat AD models. Some of the projects involve collaborations with researchers at Rutgers Brain Health institute, The Rockefeller University, and Weill Cornell medical college.
