Fellowship Opportunities

Post-Doctoral Fellow – Neurodegenerative Disease’s Mechanisms (PD, AD, and HD) (multiple positions)

The laboratory of Professor Zhenyu Yue is looking for highly motivated and collaborative postdoctoral fellows to join Friedman Brain Institute at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City.

Multiple positions are available for highly motivated and ambitious scientists to use a wide range of experimental and bioinformatic approaches to investigate the pathogenic mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s diseases. The lab employs mouse genetics, biochemical, molecular, cellular, transcriptomic (snRNAseq), proteomic, network, imaging (live and fixed), animal pathology/behavior, human iPSC neurons/glia and postmortem tissue analysis to dissect autophagy-lysosome, synaptic vesicle trafficking, cell metabolism, neuroinflammation, and protein/lipid kinase signaling in the neuropathogenesis.

Please visit the lab’s website for an overview of our research interests: https://labs.icahn.mssm.edu/yuelab/
