The Schrag Laboratory at Vanderbilt University has an opening for a post-doctoral researcher to study shared molecular mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease and cerebral amyloid angiopathy.  This is a new laboratory in the Department of Neurology; the available project will focus on establishing the role of a novel protein in the function and trafficking of dysfunctional lysosomes to dystrophic neurites around beta-amyloid plaques.  We work with human brain tissue and fluids, transgenic mouse models, organotypic tissue culture and cell culture with immunofluorescent microscopy techniques and basic biochemistry.  Applicants should have completed (or soon complete) their PhD in neuroscience, cell biology or a related field with experience in molecular biology.  Experience with CRISP-Cas and transgene vector construction is highly desirable.  The start date is flexible and salary according to the NIH scale.

Applicants should submit a letter of interest, their CV, and contact for three references to the PI's email: matthew.schrag@vanderbilt.edu.
