Postdoctoral Positions @ Tufts

Job Title: Postdoctoral Fellow Position, Neuroscience and Ageing

Job Description
The Neuroscience and Aging Lab, at the Tufts University JM USDA HNRCA is looking to recruit a  postdoctoral investigator interested in studying the role of standard of care medicine in combination with nutrition and nutrient therapies to prevent and treat neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.  Disease-specific in vitro and in vivo avatars are studied in relation to stem cell biology and regenerative medicine as a means for better preventing and treating age-related neurological disorders.  We are seeking a dedicated researcher with experience using biochemical (e.g. HPLC, MS), genetic and molecular profiling, and cell culture and in vivo models for studying normal and pathological brain processes.  

For more information, or for applying for this position, please contact Dr. Dennis Steindler at Dennis.Steindler@Tufts.edu 


Job Title: Post-doctoral Scientist, Biochemist/Cell Biologist

Job DescriptionThe Tufts University School of Medicine Neuroscience department is looking for 1-2 postdoctoral scientists to join the AstraZeneca-Tufts Laboratory for Basic and Translational Neurosciences. Applicants should have a PhD in one of the following areas: Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Cell Signaling, or Pharmacology (Neuroscience or related disciplines preferred). Expertise in areas of biochemistry and cell biology (protein misfolding, cell signaling, stem cells, protein tracking and imaging), microscopy and prior experience with rodents are preferred. The candidate must be able to work both independently and in a team-setting, initiate collaborations with peers, and have strong written and oral communication skills.Under the Co-Supervision of Prof. Stephen Moss of Tufts University School of Medicine and Dr. Nick Brandon from the AstraZeneca Neuroscience Unit, the postdoctoral scientist will have a unique opportunity to work in a team at the academic-industry interface and will have open access to the AstraZeneca Neuroscience drug discovery team based in Boston, MA. Essential Functions include:
  • Design and conduct research to validate and characterize the role of candidate pathways, mechanisms, targets and experimental therapeutics for a range of brain disorders
  • Interact and collaborate with scientists across Tufts and AstraZeneca. Become an active leader within the growing Tufts and AstraZeneca community.
  • Publish scientific manuscripts and attend conferences to communicate novel findings to the research community.
