Cognitive and Neuroimaging Studies of Aging, Memory, and Alzheimer's Disease in Older African AmericansPosted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2020-Jan-07
We seek a postdoctoral research fellow to join our lab at Rutgers University-Newark, just outside New York City, to work on cognitive and neuroimaging studies of how individual differences in physical activity (or aerobic fitness), sleep, and genetics influence aging, memory and Alzheimer’s disease in older African Americans. With funding from the National Institute on Aging at NIH, the Office of Minority Health at HHS, and the New Jersey Department of Health’s Office of Minority and Multicultural Health, we are conducting: (1) cross-sectional and longitudinal studies of risk and resilience to cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease in African Americans, as well as (2) interventional studies examining how physical activity and aerobic exercise reduce biomarkers for Alzheimer’s risk. Other studies look at how sleep patterns relate to age-related cognitive decline, memory loss, and Alzheimer’s risk. Our lab uses multiple methods including fMRI, genetics, cognitive, behavioral, fitness, EEG sleep monitoring (polysomnography), and health assessments.
For additional details, lecture videos, an overview of current lab members, and downloadable publications and research summaries, see our lab web site at http://www.gluck.edu/ and our community web site for the Rutgers Aging & Brain Health Alliance at https://brainhealth.rutgers.edu/.Qualifications:
We seek applicants with some or all of the following:
