Brief Description:
The Research Associate in Preclinical Neuropathology will undertake research using nanomaterials and neural interface devices used for stimulation, recording and as therapeutic molecule transport systems to the diseased central (CNS) and peripheral nervous system (PNS). Biological and electrophysiological investigations (including cell and tissue analysis using molecular techniques and functional assays) of the implanted devices and nanomaterials using primarily in vivo models will be performed. You will be expected to contribute to the establishment and maintenance of CNS disease models (Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, glioblastoma) in collaboration with other investigators within the Nanomedicine Lab, and other collaborative labs. You should be able to interact effectively with researchers from a range of other disciplines to contribute to the programme of research, particularly in the execution and management of in vivo preclinical disease neuropathology, including therapy. The researcher will work closely with the PI (Kostarelos) to validate the appropriate govermental and institutional lisensing for the performance of preclinical disease models in collaboration with the UAB Medical School.

You should hold a PhD in pharmacy, biomedicine, neuroscience, neurobiology, gene therapy of brain disease, neuropharmacology or neurooncology. You should have demonstrable previous neurosurgical experience and familiarity with use of neurodegenerative or neurooncological disease models for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes. Prior experience with in vivo brain cancer models will be particularly preferred. Previous experience in experimental research using devices, biomaterials or nanomaterials and evidence of a developing research publication track record would be advantageous.

Brief Description:
Recent developments in technology and ground-breaking research approaches from MIT are creating new ways to combat brain diseases, including neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease, as well as offer new strategies to promote healthy brain aging.

MIT and Fundación Bancaria La Caixa, have partnered to move this work forward. By supporting research, education and the innovative technology development through “la Caixa” Postdoctoral Fellowships, MIT has the potential to help revolutionize treatment for brain diseases and improve quality of life.

To do so, “la Caixa” Foundation and MIT join forces to offer two postdoctoral fellowships for up to three years in neuroscience research at MIT to the most talented PhD graduates. La Caixa offers these fellowships to support researchers with Spanish or Portuguese nationality or other researchers who have earned their PhDs in Spain or Portugal. Preference will be given to those who have project interests related to brain aging.
