The Mayo Clinic Department of Neuroscience is recruiting an outstanding early- to mid-career physician/scientist (MD or MD/PhD) with neuropathology training and expertise in aging and neurodegenerative disorders. This individual is expected to establish a robust research program utilizing neuropathological tools to address neurodegenerative disease processes and to take full advantage of the brain bank for neurodegenerative disorders at Mayo Clinic.
Candidates are expected to have or be eligible for board certification to provide neuropathological diagnoses, with a focus on autopsy pathology, rather than neurosurgical pathology. They would provide assessments on brains submitted to the Mayo Clinic Brain Bank for diagnostic evaluation and research. In addition to supporting and collaborating with research scientists within the Neuroscience department, the candidate is expected to establish an independent, extramurally funded research program. Finally, the candidate is expected to participate in education and institutional administrative activities.
THE DEPARTMENT OF NEUROSCIENCE is internationally recognized for academic excellence with a specific focus on understanding the etiology and developing diagnostic and treatment methods for neurodegenerative diseases. Scientists within the neuroscience department have strong expertise in neurogenetics, neuropathology, disease modeling, immunity, and experimental therapeutics. The Department faculty play key roles in the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center and other large-scale NIH-funded consortia. The Mayo Clinic Brain Bank housed within the department is directed by Dr. Dennis Dickson and has >9000 banked postmortem brains from individuals with cognitive and movement disorders, as well as neuroimmune and motor neuron diseases. The brain bank serves various projects and programs within the institution, as well as supporting broader research community.
