We are continually seeking highly motivated individuals with a strong publication record to join our energetic and fast-paced lab as postdoctoral fellows. A Ph.D. with molecular and cellular biology or neuroscience experience is required to apply. Additional experience in biochemistry, proteomics, microscopy, viral vector technology, neuropathology and/or behavioral assays is preferred (but not necessary). Interested candidates should email Dr. Moore to inquire. Graduate students interested in joining the lab are encouraged to apply through Van Andel Institute Graduate School (VAIGS).
