Postdoctoral Research Fellow: glycoproteomics and dementia (September 2020)

Postdoctoral Research Fellow: glycoproteomics and dementia

A post-doctoral position for a highly motivated and team-oriented candidate to analyze existing glycoproteomics data from diabetic patients, and execute novel experiments using a rare clinical sample cohort exquisitely well-characterized for cognitive decline.

Candidates with a PhD in Bioinformatics, Molecular Biology, Immunology, Biotechnology, or Biochemistry earned within the last two years are encouraged to apply.

Protein biochemistry and use of statistical software will be central to the project.

The postdoctoral position will be co-supervised by Prof. Robert Fluhr, Weizmann Institute, Dr. Michal Beeri, Sheba Medical Center and Dr. Yishai Levin, Head of the Protein Profiling unit, the Nancy and Stephen Grand Israel National Center for Personalized Medicine.

The Beeri lab specializes in aging neuroscience with a focus on prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The cohorts who she investigates are exquisitely well-characterized for cognition, neuroimaging (both MRI and PET), sociodemographics, medical history, bloods, genetics, lifestyle, diet, psychiatric symptomatology, and more. The ultimate goal of this group is to develop preventive interventions against cognitive decline.

Applicants should send a single PDF file to michal.beeri@mssm.edu and Yishai.levin@weizmann.ac.il, that includes a personal statement of scientific interests and goals (2-page maximum), Curriculum Vitae with recent publications and contact information of three referees.
