UCSF Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases
The Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases (IND) at the University of California San Francisco
(UCSF) is seeking outstanding postdoctoral fellows to pursue groundbreaking research projects
involving neurodegenerative illnesses in humans.
Directed by Nobel laureate Stanley B. Prusiner, the IND’s mission is to discover causes and develop
cures for diseases of aging, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, the tauopathies, and
the prion diseases. Current research at the IND involves both basic and translational science, from
molecular, cell and structural biology, to transgenic mouse models and drug discovery.
The postdoctoral mentoring program at the IND trains fellows to become independent investigators
qualified to research neurodegenerative diseases using the most appropriate, modern methods. To
achieve this goal, fellows must acquire a strong foundation in the fundamentals that will enable them
to master new techniques and approaches long after they complete formal training.
Applicants should hold or be close to completing a Ph.D., M.D. or D.V.M. degree and be highly
motivated individuals with expertise in one or more of the following: neuroscience, molecular biology,
synthetic chemistry, biophysics, cell biology, or animal behavior.
Applicants should apply through the IND’s website at:
a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a brief statement of research accomplishments and interests,
and the contact information of three references.
