The Inherited Movement Disorder Unit is often looking for talented post-bacs, graduate students, medical students, post-docs, and clinical fellows to join our diverse group. Applicants should have an interest in mechanistic studies using cell lines and/or mouse models to better understand mitochondrial dysfunction and stress responses in neurodegeneration.

Applicants particularly at the post-doc level should provide proof of scientific accomplishment. A demonstrated track-record of publications (for instance, at least one first authored peer-reviewed publication) is critical.

The NIH Intramural Research Program is an international, multicultural and stimulating scientific and social environment. The campus is conveniently located in Bethesda, MD, which is a cosmopolitan area adjacent to Washington DC.
