A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of John Landers at the University of Massachusetts Medical School in Worcester, Massachusetts. The focus of the laboratory is to study the molecular and cellular basis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. In particular, we are interested in studying the how mutations in ALS -related genes influence several cellular processes including axonal transport, neurite outgrowth and formation of protein aggregation. The position requires attention to detail, good communication skills, strong skills in experimental design and troubleshooting, an ability to work independently and as part of a team, and dedication to doing the best job possible.

Required background: PhD in cell biology, neuroscience, molecular biology or other fields relevant for the position and a publication record of original peer-reviewed research. Experience with primary cell culture and optical imaging is beneficial. A background in neurodegenerative diseases is also helpful.

When applying, please include a cover letter, your resume/CV, publication list, and the names of three references. Please send to: John E. Landers, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Neurology, University of Massachusetts Medical School, 364 Plantation St, 604 LRB , Worcester, MA 01605-4321, Email: john.landers@umassmed.edu
