Why Mayo Clinic
The Mayo Clinic Department of Neuroscience is internationally recognized and respected for academic excellence with a specific focus on understanding the etiology and developing diagnostic and treatment methods for age-related neurodegenerative diseases. The vision of the department is to promote the highest quality, team-based, nationally ranked neuroscience research programs and to translate neuroscience discovery to improved care for patients with neurological diseases. Scientists within the neuroscience department have strong expertise in neurogenetics, neuropathology, disease modeling, immunity, and experimental therapeutics. The Department faculty play key roles in the Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, large scale NIA-funded Alzheimer's disease consortia including AMP-AD and M2OVE-AD, Tau Center without Walls, Lewy body dementia Center without Walls, and in NIH-supported whole genome sequencing efforts for Alzheimer's disease, Lewy body dementia, frontotemporal dementia and the parkinsonian tauopathy progressive supranuclear palsy. The research mission of the department is closely aligned with the resources and initiatives of Robert and Arlene Kogod Center on Aging, Department of Neurology, Department of Neurosurgery, Center for Regenerative Medicine, Center for Individualized Medicine, and Center for Biomedical Discovery. The Department also has an outstanding training environment and is the home department for the Neuroscience PhD Program at Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences.
Mayo Clinic has a wealth of world-class faculty. Laboratories and shared resource facilities are state-of-the-art, including those for microscopy and imaging, cell and molecular biology, animal models, production of research and clinical grade iPSCs and MSCs, biomedical engineering and mathematics, materials testing, a Medical Genomics Facility, a Mouse Modeling Facility, Molecular and Microscopic Core Facilities, and unique Human Disease Tissue Banks. We offer a highly competitive compensation package with sustained intramural funding, capital equipment funding, technical and computational resources, and exceptional benefits.
The Department of Neuroscience at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida is seeking outstanding candidates with dynamic research programs in Neurobiology of Disease and Aging.
The candidates are expected to have a track record of major contributions to the field, with an emphasis on the application of novel in vitro and in vivo imaging tools, disease modeling using animal models and induced pluripotent stem cells, the use of systems level analytical, computational, and bioinformatics approaches, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, machine learning/AI, or the integration of multiple discovery platforms to advance our understanding of disease biology and etiology. Although all areas of neurodegenerative disease and aging research will be considered, we are in particular seeking candidates who have primary interests in Alzheimer's disease and related dementias, synaptic biology, innate immunity, neurovascular biology, and brain aging as it relates to neurobiology of disease. The candidates are expected to have a history of extramural funding, high impact publication, as well as a proven record of collaborative team science endeavors. Individuals with interest and experience in research training and graduate-level education are particularly encouraged to apply.
Jacksonville is the largest city in area in the continental United States. A beautiful coastal Florida city that features excellent year-round climate, over 20 miles of beaches and outstanding outdoor recreational, cultural and family-oriented amenities. The "River City by the Sea" has an excellent school system, reasonable cost of living and a thriving business environment. Medical professionals and patients are drawn to Jacksonville by an extraordinary network of high-profile healthcare facilities. Jacksonville continues to grow as more people relocate from all over the U.S. and abroad, to see what the great River City has to offer!
