The University of California, Irvine has an opportunity for a postdoctoral position within the laboratories of Andrea Tenner and Ali Mortazavi to work on projects related to neuroinflammatory mechanisms of Alzheimer’s diseases. This position requires a Ph.D. degree in one of the following disciplines: systems biology, genomics, or neuroinflammation. A major focus will be on tissue and single cell RNAseq and data analysis, from aged transgenic and wild type mice as well as biochemical analysis. Prior experience in RNA-seq, single-cell RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, ChIP-seq, mammalian regulatory conservation, and/or integrative analysis of genomics data is highly valued. The ideal candidate will demonstrate strong problem-solving skills, creative thinking, and initiative. The goal of this project is to characterize complement-protein dependent neuroinflammatory, synapse pruning and neuroprotective pathways and propel therapeutic intervention in Alzheimer’s disease.


In addition to the two PIs, the successful candidate will consult with others in UCI’s highly interactive and innovative neuroscience and immunology community. Candidate should have a record of published graduate research. The position will be appointed at the level that is commensurate with the education and experience of the individual candidate. Applications from members of ethnic and racial minority groups are encouraged to apply. All applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.


Interested individuals should submit a curriculum vitae, cover letter including summary of current and future research interests, and names and contact information for three references to the following on-line recruitment URL:
