We are looking for 7-8 postdoctoral scientists to join
the neuroscience department at Tufts University School of
Medicine and AstraZeneca to apply cutting edge approaches
and thinking to some of the most devastating brain disorders
of our age.
Based in the Dept. of Neuroscience at Tufts University
School of Medicine in Boston, the successful candidates will
be experts in the areas of electrophysiology (in vivo
experience in particular), biochemistry (protein
aggregation/misfolding in particular) and cell biology.
This is a truly unique opportunity to join a team working
at the interface of academia and industry. You’ll have
access to cutting edge technology and facilities plus open
access to the very experienced AstraZeneca Neuroscience drug
discovery team based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
Co-supervised by Dr. Stephen Moss of Tufts University
School of Medicine and Dr. John Dunlop and Dr. Nick Brandon
from the AZ Neuroscience iMED, you will communicate your
research results externally through top-tier publications
and scientific conferences.
The role’s major responsibilities
- 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 AZ scientific community.
- Publish scientific papers and attend conferences to
communicate novel findings to the research community.
