Postdoctoral Associate - Kaczorowski Lab

Summary The Kaczorowski Lab at The Jackson Laboratory is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to investigate mechanisms of cognitive resilience to Alzheimer' disease.  Projects exploit 'humanized' mouse models of cognitive resilience to identify and link genetic factors to circuit level mechanisms using in vivo electrophysiology in freely moving mice. We are especially interested in understanding the effects of aging and Alzheimer's on neural mechanisms of learning and memory. Translational research collaborations in genomics-based, personalized medicine are fostered through our new JAX Genomic Medicine campus in Farmington, CT. In addition to lab-based training, JAX has developed a unique program for trainees to expand their professional skills in science communication, entrepreneurship, teaching, mentoring and laboratory management to best prepare postdocs for future career opportunities. Responsibilities The successful candidate will be encouraged to develop an independent research program using a broad array of resources and expertise available to the lab Qualifications Motivation and curiosity, and the desire to see things through are paramount. Demonstrate the ability to plan, execute and analyze an independent research project, with preference given to highly career oriented individuals. Exceptional postdoctoral candidates will have the opportunity to apply to become a JAX Postdoctoral Scholar, a selective award addressing the national need for research scientists who are accomplished in the broadly defined fields of genetics and genomics. The award includes an independent research budget, travel funds, and a salary above standard postdoctoral scale.  2018-24771
