Post-Doctoral Associate Openings at Rutgers-Newark in Functional Brain Imaging of Aging and Alzheimer's Disease in Older African Americans

The Aging & Brain Health Alliance at Rutgers University-Newark seeks two Post- Doctoral Associates with strong prior training and experience in fMRI methods and an interest in applying those techniques to the study of aging and Alzheimer's disease prevention. Post-Doctoral Associates who work in our lab would participate in our NIH-funded study of Pathways to Healthy Aging in African Americans, which draws on interdisciplinary methods from cognitive neuroscience (fMRI, EEG, & cognitive assessments), genetics of Alzheimer's Disease and memory, exercise physiology and kinesiology, public health, sleep research, and immunology. We have an extensive program of community engagement in the greater Newark area through which we recruit older African Americans into both longitudinal and interventional research. We work collaboratively with several other aging and brain research centers including those at UC, Irvine (brain imaging and sleep) and the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, (neurochemistry of Alzheimer's pathology); there will be opportunities for interdisciplinary cross-training with our collaborators at these other institutions.

For additional details, lecture videos, an overview of current lab members, and downloadable publications and research summaries, see our lab web site at https:// www. and our community web site for the Rutgers Aging & Brain Health Alliance at https: //
