The Orr lab at Weill Cornell focuses on astrocytes, astrocytic-neuronal interactions, glial and immune responses in neurodegeneration, neuroinflammation, and signaling pathways in the mitochondria, including oxidative stress, as therapeutic targets for neurodegenerative disease. We have several open positions for postdoctoral fellows and welcome inquiries from motivated candidates interested in translational neurobiology and mechanisms of disease. Ideal candidates will have specific interests in astrocytic-neuronal signaling or mitochondrial production of free radicals in the brain.
Our trainees are individually mentored, supported, and encouraged to lead independent high-impact projects, collaborate with others, submit research proposals, build their professional networks, and prepare for career success in academia or industry. Please visit our lab website to learn more about our superb team, exciting research projects, latest lab news, and shared core values (orrlaboratory.com).
We are located in a new state-of-the-art Belfer Research Building in the vibrant upper east side of Manhattan and are part of the bustling biomedical complex of Weill Cornell Medicine, Sloan Kettering, Rockefeller University, and New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Weill Cornell is comprised of 25 academic departments: nine focus on medical sciences and sixteen focus on human diseases. Weill Cornell provides training for about 400 medical students, 600 graduate students, and 400 postdoctoral fellows, creating a highly robust and collaborative research environment in the exhilarating and culturally diverse setting of New York City. Postdoctoral fellows have the option of luxury housing with various amenities close to campus!
Applicants should have a PhD and/or MD, and rigorous previous training in neuroscience or other relevant fields. We are especially interested in postdoctoral candidates with outstanding records of research productivity and training in molecular biology methods (CRISPR, RNAseq, cloning), mitochondrial biology, electrophysiology, and/or immune-related signaling pathways. We strongly encourage underrepresented and minority applicants to consider our lab. If interested in applying, please send us your CV and a summary of previous accomplishments and current interests.
