Hebrew SeniorLife (Boston): Post-Doctoral Research Fellow-Nutrition and Alzheimer's Disease (Clinical Trial Focus)
This is a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute for Aging Research, within its Interventional Studies in Aging Center (ISAC) to conduct nutritional interventions aimed at preventing cognitive decline/Alzheimer’s disease under the supervision/guidance of Harvard Medical School faculty. Responsibilities include: (1) Conducting clinical nutrition trials in older adults with/without cognitive impairment (particular emphasis on the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamics of diet/nutrition interventions in aging); (2) Exploring molecular biomarkers (i.e., genetic, epigenetic, nutritional metabolomics) needed to capture mechanistic insights into how nutrition influences human (neuro) biology/cognition. Utilize available datasets with such measures to better refine research questions, clinical trial design and generate publications; (3) Interact with a multi-disciplinary group of scientists and support staff required to design, implement, and successfully execute clinical trials; (4) ability to take advantage of other training and coursework available through the Harvard Medical School and its teaching affiliates (e.g., Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Mass General Hospital, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health) or training grants; and (5) Involvement in preparing manuscripts for publication and presentations for scientific meetings. This is an ideal opportunity to gain experience in nutrition, cognitive aging and Alzheimer’s Disease research under the mentorship of successful investigators with broad experience and international recognition in nutrition and dementia.
For more than 50 years, the Institute for Aging Research has initiated hundreds of studies that challenge health-related assumptions commonly associated with aging. Our findings have a direct and positive impact on the standard of care and quality of life for seniors around the world. We are a research affiliate of Harvard Medical School and our highly regarded researchers collaborate with other renowned health care institutions around the world. As a part of Hebrew SeniorLife, our goal is to further our shared mission to redefine the aging experience.
