Post-doc, University of Helsinki (Finland)

FIMM is currently seeking a postdoctoral researcher
to join Cognitive and Brain Aging group. A postdoctoral researcher will be working in FIMM Cognitive and Brain Aging group led by Dr. Eero Vuoksimaa. Cognitive and Brain Aging group studies risk and protective factors of old age cognitive impairment and aims to improve early detection and diagnosis of dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. We are also interested in healthy cognitive aging and cognitive reserve. Our multidisciplinary approach includes e.g., epidemiology, twins studies, molecular genetics, neuropsychology and brain imaging. We are seeking highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to work in a project that aims to understand the mechanisms of cognitive and brain aging from middle age to the oldest-old. Project is done in close collaboration with national and international researchers including Turku PET Centre and University of California, San Diego.
