We all want to be able to do something to change the course of diseases that today have no cure and limited treatment options, but potentially transformative opportunities to do so are rare. Recent technology developments and ground-breaking research approaches from MIT are creating new ways to combat neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease as well as offer new strategies to promote healthy brain aging.
MIT, in partnership with ”la Caixa” Foundation, are joined to move this work forward to help millions of people worldwide. By supporting research, education and the innovative technologies developed in MIT’s Aging Brain Initiative (ABI) through ”la Caixa” Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowships, we have the potential to help revolutionize treatment for neurodegenerative diseases and improve quality of life.
”la Caixa” Foundation offers three postdoctoral fellowships for up to three years in Aging Brain Initiative laboratories across MIT to the most talented PhD graduates. Preference will be given graduates from institutions in Spain or Portugal** who have a strong record of academic excellence, outstanding PhD research, proven scientific productivity, and evidence of potential in their research paths.
**Exceptionally, graduates from other European institutions will be considered.
