Our laboratory is seeking a postdoctoral researcher with a Ph.D. and/or M.D. to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying Alzheimer’s disease, prion diseases, and other disorders caused by protein aggregation. Our goal is to understand how these aggregates harm the brain and develop new ways to stop them.

Our team is multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural, and highly interactive, working on a range of projects from basic biology to drug discovery. Team members are highly motivated, collaborate frequently, and learn from each other. We are located in Boston, Massachusetts, a premier center for academic research and a hub for the biotech and pharma industries.

If you have experience in biochemistry, cell biology, chemical biology, protein structure, or iPSC models, and you want to join a vibrant research group that has a long-standing reputation and impactful publications in the field of neurodegenerative disorders, consider joining us.

Please submit your curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, and the names of three references to:
