Join the Bitan Lab

Come study Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and other neurodegenerative diseases with us. We're studying their mechanisms, creating tests to detect them early, and developing drug candidates to help treat them. If you are interested in being a part of this effort, email Dr. Bitan.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Currently, we do not have openings for new postdocs.

Graduate Students 

Students accepted to one of the Home Areas Dr. Bitan is a member of--Neuroscience, Biochemistry, Biophysics and Structural Biology, and Molecular & Medical Pharmacology--are welcome to rotate with us and apply for a position in our laboratory.

Undergraduate Students

Highly motivated UCLA undergrads in disciplines related to our research are generally welcome to inquire about research opportunities in our lab.


We accept research interns and summer students generally for periods of no less than 3 months. Due to a change in UCLA policies, we can only accept graduate, but not undergraduate international interns. According to US law, international students must have independent funding of which at least 51% must be from a non-personal or family support (for example, a scholarship or a sponsorship).
