A postdoctoral position is available for someone interested in working on the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease, oxidative stress, the biophysics of protein-lipid interactions, and brain lipid metabolism. The projects involve mass spectrometry, various advanced analytical spectroscopic techniques, computational chemistry, whole-animal handling, and microsurgical skills. Experience in any of these areas is an advantage, but a mastery of other advanced research techniques will be accepted as evidence of an ability to learn the skills needed in this lab.

Prospective postdoctoral researchers are encouraged to make initial contact by email. Initial contact should demonstrate a mastery of written English communication and include:a complete curriculum vitae (it should not include any abstracts, posters, "in preparation", or "submitted" manuscripts; reviews, book chapters, or other publications that are not primary research separately from primary research)

Also include
- visa / immigration status (or confirm that you are a US citizen)
- evidence of familiarity with recent publications from this lab
- evidence of scientific productivity (two or three recently published first-author papers)
- a brief (one-line) statement of long-term career goals
- an explanation of how a fellowship in this lab will help achieve those goals
- a short list of professional references with telephone contact information

  • The University of Pennsylvania’s special character is reflected in the diversity of the Penn community. Diversity is prized at Penn as a central component of its mission and helps create an educational and working environment that best supports the University’s commitment to excellence in teaching, research, and scholarship. We seek talented faculty, students and staff who will constitute a vibrant community that draws on the strength that comes with a substantive institutional commitment to diversity along dimensions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, disability, veteran status, interests, perspectives, and socioeconomic status.
    Grounded in equal opportunity, nondiscrimination, and affirmative action, Penn’s robust commitment to diversity is fundamental to the University’s mission of advancing knowledge, educating leaders for all sectors of society, and public service. The University of Pennsylvania prohibits unlawful discrimination based on race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, age, disability, veteran status, or any other legally protected class.
    Penn is committed to ensuring that its academic, social, recreational programs and services as well as opportunities for admission and employment are available on an equitable and nondiscriminatory basis without regard to an individual’s legally protected class status. Penn also has written affirmative action programs to address any underrepresentation of women, minorities, people with disabilities, and qualified covered veterans. The Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Programs, in collaboration with the Division of Human
    Resources and the Office of the Provost, oversees the implementation and administration of the University’s equal opportunity, affirmative action, and nondiscrimination policies and programs.
    The University recognizes the right of members of the community to raise questions and pursue complaints of discrimination and adheres to a strict policy that prohibits retaliation for doing so. Questions, complaints of alleged discrimination, or concerns regarding these policies or their implementation may be directed to the Executive Director, Office of Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Programs, Sansom Place East, Suite 228, 3600 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6106, (215) 898-6993 or Fax number (215) 746-7088.
