We are looking to grow our lab family!

Postdoctoral Fellows

The Pike Lab is looking to recruit postdoctoral fellows to work on Alzheimer’s disease pathogenesis. We seek hardworking, motivated researchers to lead studies in highly collaborative, multi-disciplinary NIH-funded projects that are investigating (1) the relationships among obesity, ApoE, and aging in driving development of AD, and (2) sex differences in the AD risk associated with ApoE4 with an emphasis on developmental factors. These studies employ a variety of approaches at the molecular, cellular, and behavioral levels. We focus on transgenic mouse models, but these projects include components ranging from cell culture to human subjects.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in neuroscience, biology, endocrinology, or a related field. Ideal candidates will have a strong history of productivity and experience with animal models, standard molecular biology techniques, ApoE biology, glial biology, histology and immunohistochemistry, behavioral analyses, and/or bioinformatics.

Interested candidates should submit their CV, a cover letter describing their accomplishments and research interests, and contact information for three references.

Graduate Students

The Pike Lab is always interested in training ambitious, dedicated graduate students wishing to pursue careers in science. We belong to both the USC Biology of Aging PhD Program and the USC Neuroscience Graduate Program.

Interested applicants should contact Dr. Pike for further information.

Undergraduate Assistants

The Pike Lab is committed to training undergraduate students wishing to pursue careers in biomedical fields.

Undergraduate research assistants should expect to devote at least 10 hours per week to laboratory work.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and resume.

Interested applicants should email Dr. Pike at
