Caltech invites applications for a postdoctoral research fellowship investigating the gut-brain communications in Huntington's disease (HD). The goals of the projects are to determine the role of gut environment on the oligomerization of mutant huntington protein and to establish a link between intestinal microbes and the progression of HD symptoms.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in neurobiology or closely related field and an interest in interdisciplinary research. Experience with Drosophila and/or mouse models is preferred. The successful candidate should have an exceptional publication record and excellent communication skills. Salary and benefits are highly competitive. Position is open immediately.

Interested individuals should send Curriculum Vitae, list of publications, a brief statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation directly from scientists familiar with the candidate's work and personal qualifications to Dr. Ali Khoshnan (Khoshnan@caltech.edu)
