Postdoctoral fellow
Albany Medical College
Postdoc Position in Alzheimer’s Disease Risk Genes - Neurovascular Interactions

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available to study the functional impact of Alzheimer’s disease risk genes on neurovascular interactions. Studies will perform in vivo phenotyping and functional testing of endothelial Alzheimer’s disease risk genes. Our studies utilize a variety of approaches, including in vivo cerebral blood flow measurements, in vivo gene manipulation (AAVs), cognitive behavioral testing, endothelial translatome (TRAP-seq), endothelial transcriptomics, molecular biology, immunohistochemistry, mouse models of metabolic disease and mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease.

This project is part of a multi-center U01 grant under the Alzheimer’s Disease Sequencing Project Functional Genomics Consortium. The postdoc will have frequent interactions with co-mentors Dr. Kristen Zuloaga and Dr. Kevin Pumiglia as well as the NIA program officer and other consortium members.

Postdoctoral Fellow
Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine
Postdoctoral Positions in Computational Genetics and Genomics: human genome regulation and disease

Join Dr. Barbara Stranger's lab, in the Center for Genetic Medicine, an innovative research institute at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, one of the nation's leading academic medical institutions, dedicated to improving our understanding of fundamental genetic mechanisms and the genetic basis of human disease.
Scientists in the Stranger Lab work at the intersection of cutting-edge human genetics, bioinformatics, statistical approaches to analysis of multidimensional data, and computer science. We work with diverse types of biomedical genetics and genomics data to generate new knowledge of genome function and the genetic basis of complex phenotypes.
We are hiring multiple motivated researchers to join our team as Postdoctoral Scholars to work on NIH-funded research in regulatory genomics and disease genetics. We have openings to work on projects investigating neuropsychiatric disorders, cardiac phenotypes, complications of diabetes, cancer, and the immune system. Many projects have components assessing the role of sex in complex human phenotypes. Our work is highly interdisciplinary, spanning statistical genetics, systems biology, genomics, bioinformatics, data integration, and data science and visualization. Our funded projects include analysis of GWAS data, sequencing data, diverse genomics data types, and biobank data.
The successful candidates will join a multidisciplinary and collaborative team investigating biological questions ranging from basic human genome science to disease genetics and genomics. We are members of ENCODE, GTEx, and disease Consortia, creating excellent opportunities for training and networking.
Postdoctoral Fellowship to study animal models of SUD
Temple University
The Briand lab at Temple University is seeking an accomplished and motivated Postdoctoral Associate to participate in an NIH-supported research project investigate physiological, molecular, cellular and behavioral mechanisms underlying drug addiction. Our research program utilizes a variety of approaches including optogenetics, whole-cell electrophysiology, behavioral testing, molecular techniques, and structural imaging. Additional information about the laboratory is available at:

Successful candidates should have a Ph.D. in Neuroscience, Pharmacology, Psychology or related discipline. Experience with whole-cell patch clamp electrophysiology is required, experience in rodent behavior, molecular biology and/or microscopy is preferred. This position would be ideal for a candidate trained in electrophysiology looking to gain more experience in behavioral models of addiction. Successful candidates will have a strong track record of publication, good organizational skills and attention to detail.

Please send a brief letter of interest describing research experience and career goals, current CV and contact information for three references in a single PDF file to Dr. Lisa Briand at

Individuals holding or near completion (within six months) of a Ph.D. or equivalent degree are eligible.

Temple University is located in Philadelphia, PA, the sixth-largest city in the U.S. Philadelphia is a fantastic place to study, work and play. From its wealth of history to its renowned museums, to its bustling urban life and famous cuisine, there’s a lot to do and see.

The University is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute through their research, teaching, and/or service to the diversity and excellence of the academic community. Temple University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, veterans, and persons with disabilities.
Postdoctoral Fellow
University of California, Los Angeles
Postdoctoral Position is available immediately at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in the laboratory of Professor Rhonda Voskuhl, President of the OSSD. The Voskuhl lab studies sex differences in health and disease. The current position will focus on sex chromosome and sex hormone effects on neurodegeneration using mouse models of cognitive decline in brain aging, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer's disease.
Postdoctoral position in Neuroepigenetics
Fordham University
Dr. Marija Kundakovic’s laboratory in the Department of Biological Sciences at Fordham University is now accepting applications for two NIH-funded Postdoctoral Researcher positions in the area of Neuroepigenetics.
The Kundakovic lab is broadly interested in the epigenetic basis of psychiatric disorders, and focuses on hormonal and environmental factors driving sex differences in depression, anxiety disorders, and drug abuse. The recently-funded NIH project is aimed to dissect the epigenetic regulation of brain and behavior by the estrous cycle, by combining cutting-edge epigenomics and single-cell genomics assays with targeted genetic manipulation in the brain in vivo and behavioral analyses. We have been spearheading the research on the molecular mechanisms underlying increased female risk for anxiety and depression and, for an example of our work, please see the following article PMID: 31253786. Our research is interdisciplinary and collaborative and offers plenty of opportunities for training and career advancement.
We are looking for a motivated individual with strong interest in neuroepigenetics and sex differences in brain and behavior. Candidates with expertise in molecular biology, neuroendocrinology, behavioral neuroscience, and/or reproductive biology will be given the highest priority. The candidate should have excellent written and oral communication skills and the ability to work well independently and with others.
For inquires and to apply, please email Dr. Kundakovic ( The application should include CV, a short summary of your past and future research interests, and contact information of three referees.
Salary will be commensurate with the experience and will be based on the NIH postdoctoral salary scale. Fordham University is an equal opportunity employer committed to excellence through diversity and welcomes candidates of all backgrounds.
