The Department of Neuroscience at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida is seeking outstanding candidates with dynamic research programs in Neurobiology of Disease and Aging.
The candidates are expected to have a track record of major contributions to the field, with an emphasis on the application of novel in vitro and in vivo imaging tools, disease modeling using animal models and induced pluripotent stem cells, the use of systems level analytical, computational, and bioinformatics approaches, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, machine learning/AI, or the integration of multiple discovery platforms to advance our understanding of disease biology and etiology. Although all areas of neurodegenerative disease and aging research will be considered, we are in particular seeking candidates who have primary interests in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, synaptic biology, innate immunity, neurovascular biology, and brain aging as it relates to neurobiology of disease. The candidates are expected to have a history of extramural funding, high impact publication, as well as a proven record of collaborative team science endeavors. Individuals with interest and experience in research training and graduate-level education are particularly encouraged to apply.
The Mayo Clinic Department of Neuroscience is internationally recognized and respected for academic excellence with a specific focus on understanding the etiology and developing diagnostic and treatment methods for age-related neurodegenerative diseases. The vision of the department is to promote the highest quality, team-based, nationally ranked neuroscience research programs and to translate neuroscience discovery to improved care for patients with neurological diseases. Scientists within the neuroscience department have strong expertise in neurogenetics, neuropathology, disease modeling, immunity, and experimental therapeutics. The Department faculty play key roles in the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, large scale NIA-funded Alzheimer’s disease consortia including AMP-AD and M2OVE-AD, Tau Center without Walls, Lewy body dementia Center without Walls, and in NIH-supported whole genome sequencing efforts for Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal dementia and the parkinsonian tauopathy progressive supranuclear palsy. The research mission of the department is closely aligned with the resources and initiatives of Robert and Arlene Kogod Center on Aging, Department of Neurology, Department of Neurosurgery, Center for Regenerative Medicine, Center for Individualized Medicine, and Center for Biomedical Discovery. The Department also has an outstanding training environment and is the home department for the Neuroscience PhD Program at Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
