Postdoctoral Fellow

Postdoctoral Fellowship Available in Primate Behavioral Neuropathology

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Carol Shively in the Department of Pathology, Section on Comparative Medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine to study social and biological factors that affect age-related changes in behavior and neurobiology in nonhuman primates (NHPs). The Fellow will work with a multidisciplinary team on the development of a NHP model of social and dietary factors that promote neuropathologic changes characteristic of Alzheimer’s disease, and determine functional correlates. The fellow also will be encouraged to make use of extensive NHP data, tissue, and imaging repositories that provide a rich source of research projects ready for analysis and publication.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in the social or biological sciences. Requirements include outstanding skills in data analysis, written and oral communication, and the ability to work both independently and in a multidisciplinary team-oriented environment. Candidates with experience in NHP behavior and neurobiology are particularly encouraged to apply. The position is available for up to three years and compensation will follow NIH postdoctoral stipend levels.

Applicants should submit via email a letter of interest outlining experience and research goals, as well as a CV and the names and complete contact information of three references to:
