We are delighted to announce the availability of the Marlene & Paolo Fresco Basic Science Pre-Doctoral Research Fellowships. The fellowships will support the pre-doctoral work of up to two candidates in a laboratory within the NYULH Neuroscience (https://neuroscience.nyu.edu).
Successful applicants will be able to start the fellowship from September 1, 2023 and receive support for research training at a NYU laboratory for up to 1 year with a minimum of 6 months.
Research sponsored by the Fresco Institute seeks to elucidate the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in the genesis of Parkinson Disease and other movement disorders with advanced molecular, genetic, optical, neurochemical and electrophysiological approaches.
The ideal candidates are talented, motivated and creative Italian citizens with a Master Degree and engaged in an Italian or European PhD program or equivalent program.
The candidates should also have an excellent track record of research achievement and expertise in at least one of these fields: molecular genetics, electrophysiology, cellular imaging, animal behavior, computational neuroscience and biomedical engineering.
Successful candidates will benefit from state-of-the-art research facilities at NYULH as well as from the extensive and thriving research community in New York City.
