Postdoctoral position in Alzheimer’s disease

The Laboratory for the Research of Neurodegenerative Diseases headed by prof. Bart De Strooper is a vibrant environment where key issues related to Alzheimer’s disease are tackled. We are currently looking for a motivated postdoc to research how genetic risk for Alzheimer’s disease translates into microglial dysfunction, using human iPS cells and human/mouse chimeric models of Alzheimer’s disease (see Mancuso et al. 2019 Nature Neuroscience).
