The Delaware Center for Cognitive Aging Research (DECCAR), which is part of the University of Delaware’s College of Health Sciences (CHS), is seeking a full-time Research Registry Coordinator to support a participant registry for older adults involved in research studies on cognitive aging and Alzheimer’s disease prevention. The successful candidate will work as part of an interdisciplinary team of principal investigators, research and administrative staff, and graduate and undergraduate students to coordinate research activities within the Center. Primary responsibilities will include the recruitment and scheduling of older adults for intake into the registry and the coordination of research participants into multiple ongoing research studies and clinical trials at the University of Delaware. The successful candidate must be very comfortable working in a dynamic team setting and have exceptional organizational skills and attention to detail. They must be able to work effectively under pressure and make appropriate decisions under limited direction. They must also possess strong interpersonal skills and be capable of establishing trust and rapport with older adult research participants and their caregivers. Sufficient computer skills are required as the candidate will work within multiple electronic databases and must adhere to good clinical practices for research integrity and data management. The ideal candidate will have prior clinical research experience and an ability to convey general information to participants about a broad range of clinical research studies supported by the Center. The DECCAR is an interdisciplinary center committed to diversity in perspective with regards to its staff and research participants. The successful candidate is expected to uphold these values and contribute to promoting an environment that is inclusive, collaborative, connected, and supportive in accordance with the College and University’s commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice. Continuation of this 2-year position is contingent upon the future availability of funding.
Full-time neurologist for the Layton Aging & Alzheimer’s Disease Center. This position will be half clinical, half research. Position duties include 4 outpatient clinics per week; teach medical students, neurology residents, and geriatric neurology fellows; possible inpatient attending rotations. This position is expected to develop and maintain a funded research program. Initial research effort may be investigator-initiated or will go toward existing Center-wide Aging & Alzheimer’s projects if the applicant does not already have funded research.

We seek applicants with an MD, PhD or equivalent degree and an established record of publications and extramural funding in Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders for tenure-track faculty positions at all ranks (Assistant, Associate or Full Professor). Investigators with research programs in any of the following areas are especially sought: 1) genomics/multi-omics; 2) population-based or health systems/EHR research focused on early detection and risk reduction; 3) data science; 4) health disparities; 5) clinical trials including pragmatic trials; and 6) biomarker discovery. Wake Forest University School of Medicine has designated Alzheimer’s disease as one of six prioritized research focus areas, which also include Aging, Neurosciences, Diabetes/Obesity, and Cardiovascular Disease. Wake Forest University School of Medicine is home to several highly collaborative NIH-funded Centers including an Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, Pepper Older Adult Independence Center, Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and a Diabetes Research Center.
We have an exciting opportunity for a postdoctoral fellow at UCSF in San Francisco working in the research group of Professor Michael Weiner, MD, the Principal Investigator of the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI). The applicant will be involved in innovative research using ADNI data, including research focused on identifying older adults at risk for cognitive decline and dementia, and understanding contributions of demographic factors and the role of fluid and imaging biomarkers. ADNI is a longitudinal multicenter study designed to develop clinical, imaging, genetic, and biochemical biomarkers for the early detection and tracking of Alzheimer’s disease. Since its launch more than a decade ago, the landmark public-private partnership has made major contributions to Alzheimer’s research, enabling the sharing of data between researchers around the world. Overall, this project involves clinical neuroscience and biomarker research, with an emphasis on Alzheimer’s disease, cognitive aging, and cognitive decline. An area of particular interest is the use of easily-collected participant data to efficiently enrich a sample population for cognitive impairment and elevated AD biomarkers. We are interested in exploring the contributions of subjective measures, plasma AD biomarkers, genetic risk factors, and sociodemographic factors to enrichment strategies. We encourage applications from those interested in conducting research to improve recruitment, retention, and engagement of traditionally underserved and underrepresented groups (racial and ethnic groups, those with low socioeconomic status) in clinical aging and dementia research. The Principal Investigator of the project is Michael W. Weiner, MD, Professor of Radiology. The applicant will work closely with Drs. Duygu Tosun (Associate Professor, Radiology and Biomedical Imaging) and Rachel Nosheny (Assistant Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences).
