POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AVAILABLE

Posted 04/13/22

Kaya Lab (kayalab.org)

A postdoctoral position is available starting from May 2022 in the Kaya lab at the Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA, USA.  The Kaya lab will focus on both basic and translational research areas. Our newly established lab cannot take off without motivated people. Successful candidates are expected to work closely with Dr. Kaya in the lab to design and carry out experiments, analyze, organize, and present data in written form and to meetings, and to write papers and grants. Applicant must possess strong English and analytical skills. Salaries, stipend, and benefits are commensurate with university policy and NIH guidelines.

REQUIRED SKILLS

 The Kaya lab is establishing cell and animal models of human diseases, dietary interventions, transgenic mice, and in vitro approaches to address questions, related to biology of aging. We are seeking candidates with a PhD (or will complete one soon) and a strong background in neuroscience, mitochondrial biology, cancer biology, cellular senescence, cell culture, or related fields who are passionate and self-motivated/independent in research. The ideal candidate will have hands on experience in cell culture, animal husbandry and genetics (mouse) molecular cloning and other efficient genome engineering (e.g. CRISPR) techniques.

The possible projects include but not limited to:

1) To understand the biology of complex polyploid genomes in senescence formation, cellular senescence phenotype.

2) To understand the mechanisms of cancer- and age-related metabolic disorders and epigenetic dysregulation associated with aneuploidy, thereby providing a possible means to manipulate these pathways in cancer.

We are also open to other projects candidates would like to possess, as long as they fit our general direction.

The candidate will have access to an ample spectrum of techniques available in the lab and to cell culture models of aneuploid cells.

How to Apply: Interested candidates should send a cover letter summarizing their research interests, career goals and CV with a publication list and names and contact information of three references (preferably in a single PDF) to “[email protected]”.

Application Deadline Date: Open until filled. 


BROWN UNIVERSITY, Division of Biology & Medicine, Tenure-Track Faculty Position 

Posted 2/17/22

Biology of Aging Faculty Position. Assistant Professor (tenure track).

The Center on the Biology of Aging at Brown University (https://aging.brown.edu/) announces the opening of a tenure-track faculty position with a start date of July 1, 2022. Qualifications include a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree with relevant postdoctoral research training and a published record of excellence in research. The applicant will be expected to pursue an independent and externally-funded research program. The applicant should demonstrate a commitment to undergraduate and graduate education, and be an active participant in pre-doctoral training in the Division of Biology and Medicine, and in our NIA-supported T32 training program.

Aging is the greatest risk factor for many debilitating diseases, but its underlying molecular principles and pathways remain poorly understood. Accordingly, geroscience seeks to apply newly discovered knowledge on the basic biology of aging to advance the development of therapies. The successful applicant will work at this interface. Research using human and model systems will be considered, and preference will be given to molecular aging research aiming to connect mechanistic insights with human physiology and age-related diseases. Preferred approaches will involve molecular research that integrates experimental genetics, biochemistry, cell biology and physiology, and potentially complemented by -omics and computational analysis or mathematical modeling. The program will emphasize mechanisms of aging as a biological variable when considering age-related diseases, rather than disease-specific mechanisms. Laboratory space, research facilities and start-up will be provided, including access to state-of-the-art instrumentation and core facilities throughout the Brown campus.

Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae with a complete bibliography, a 3-5 page description of research plans, a 1-page teaching statement and representative publications. These materials should be submitted electronically to https://apply.interfolio.com/101083. A minimum of three confidential reference letters should be submitted separately to the same website (instructions for requesting confidential letters are provided on the website). Review of applications will commence a rolling basis on January 10, 2022 and will continue until the position is filled.
