Job Description

The Gladstone Institutes is an independent, not-for-profit research institution affiliated with the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), contributing to the health and well-being of all people through medical research, education, and outreach in the areas of heart disease, HIV/AIDS, and neurological disease. Gladstone is composed of three separate institutes and approximately 400 employees. Our employees receive exceptional benefits. We are located in an award-winning building adjacent to UCSF's Mission Bay Campus.


A postdoctoral fellowship in the Huang Laboratory focuses on dissecting hippocampal circuits

of learning and memory using in vivo electrophysiological approaches. In vivo network activity

is used to measure and predict Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis at the molecular, cellular, and

behavioral level. Furthermore, in vivo network activity is used to develop and evaluate novel

treatment strategies. This characterization is further assessed in comparison to in vitro

electrophysiological phenotypes.

Postdoctoral candidates should possess a PhD, MD, or both and have a strong background in neuroscience or other relevant areas of biomedical research, as well as an outstanding record of academic achievements and research productivity. Please send curriculum vitae, description of accomplishments and research interests, and the names of three references to Dr. Yadong Huang.
