PhD student position currently open!

We are currently looking for a  PhD student for our lab, starting March/April 2023 (or earliest convenience).


We are investigating the impact of metabolic neuron-glia interactions in Alzheimer’s disease, aging, and epilepsy.  The project will focus on mitochondria in astrocytes and mitochondrial uncoupling; the successful candidate will work with novel optogenetic tools to achieve “on demand” control of mitochondrial activity in astrocytes to investigate astrocyte-neuron metabolic coupling and its contribution to aging, neurodegeneration, and epilepsy.


If you are interested in working in this exciting field of research apply by sending a cover letter, your curriculum vitae, past research background, accomplishments, copy of your degrees and names of three references to the following website:
