The Benayoun laboratory [https://gero.usc.edu/labs/benayounlab/] at the USC Davis School of Gerontology in Los Angeles, CA, USA, is seeking a Research Lab Technician II to join its team!

1. This person will join a lab working on the molecular basis of aging and age-related diseases. This is an opportunity for a reliable and self-motivated person to participate in cutting-edge aging research. They will be working mainly with African turquoise killifish cells and tissues, and help manage our African fish colony. They will also assist with data generation and analysis derived from with aging turquoise killifish, and will make contributions to related research projects in the laboratory. Primary responsibilities are to manage and genotype a colony of African turquoise killifish (including daily husbandry and feeding responsibilities). Secondary responsibilities will be to coordinate with other lab members, including students, to make sure the fish are taken care of according to best animal welfare practices. Other responsibilities include aspects of lab management support ( i.e. ordering basic supplies, maintaining proper lab records).

2. Job responsibilities will include but are not limited to:

  • Manage the husbandry of a small to medium fish colony (30-100 tanks).
  • Perform basic experiments and data analysis to support research lab projects, in collaboration with the PI and other lab members. Maintain detailed records of experiments, analyses and outcomes.
  • Perform general lab maintenance as needed. Help maintain lab stocks, chemical inventory and safety records, and provide general lab support, including help placing orders.
  • Help train new lab members in fish husbandry techniques.
  • Contribute to development of new research protocols and procedures or adaptation of existing protocols to the model.
  • May contribute to publication of findings and present ongoing work and findings to colleagues at academic conferences.

Hevolution Foundation is seeking a Vice President for Aging Biology who can lead the organization in this domain. The individual sought will have a deep scientific knowledge of the field of aging biology and related areas of science, including a comprehensive understanding of the pathways needed to advance basic discoveries into preclinical and translational approaches leading to clinical research / clinical trials.

ROLE DESCRIPTION

The Vice President of Aging Biology will report to the Chief Scientific Officer and will assist in driving the overarching strategic direction of research by setting specific funding priorities in basic research, including identification of the potential for translational application.

They will develop grant and partnership opportunities that can move the field towards the agreed priorities, lead the appraisal of the most promising and high-quality funding opportunities, and recommend which of those should be funded by Hevolution.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Development of a robust and balanced portfolio of grants and partnerships, often in response to ‘generic’ calls for applications in broad areas of basic research
  • Development of ‘targeted’ areas of research where gaps are identified, or opportunities are noted. The incumbent will prioritize these areas, often but not necessarily, by requesting the advice of external advisors, as well as members of her/his own team, or other members of the organization
  • Effective allocation of resources to ensure the timely and successful execution of all administrative activities necessary to ensure that external funds recipients conduct their work in compliance with HF’s policies, including ethical, legal and financial obligations.

  • Doctoral degree in Biology, Biochemistry, or similar fields
  • 10+ years research and leadership experience in academic, pharmaceutical or biotechnology industry
  • Experience developing and executing research projects either in aging biology or a related field
  • Excellence in science as demonstrated by scientific publications, speaking engagements and other similar academic activities
  • Experience in working globally with internal and external scientific experts to integrate basic scientific research within a highly complex organisational environment

Preferred Experience

This role requires an experienced, cross-matrix senior leader capable of implementing and executing an integrated basic biology strategy in support of the successful advancement of basic science research into translational opportunities.

Ideally, they will demonstrate:

  • Knowledge of the aging and longevity fields
  • Experience on grant oversight, monitoring and auditing grant recipients, either with in-house or external providers
  • Experience in integrating basic molecular and cellular research into translational research activities

Post Doc Fellow, Biochemistry Division, Chemistry, Grillo Lab 

Application: https://jobs.uc.edu/job/Cincinnati-Post-Doc-Fellow%2C-Biochemistry-Division%2C-Chemistry%2C-Grillo-Lab-OH-45201/932055400/

Job Overview

The Grillo Lab (www.grillolabuc.com) is seeking candidates to join our vibrant team in a full-time position as a Postdoctoral Fellow. Research in the Grillo Lab focuses on the molecular understanding of how age-related or environmental-induced mitochondrial dysfunction alters metabolism in neurologic disease. Our research at the interface of biochemistry, metabolism, and physiology employs multiple in vitro and in vivo models to investigate the basic biochemistry and molecular mechanisms of inborn errors of metabolism (e.g. branched chain amino acid deficiencies) and age-progressive neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. tauopathies).

Candidates with a strong background in mitochondrial metabolism, biochemistry, cell biology, aging, hypoxia, mTOR, or metal biology in neurodegenerative diseases are especially encouraged to apply. The postdoctoral scientist will perform laboratory experiments on an independent project under the supervision of Dr. Grillo while assisting other laboratory personnel. The target start date is October 1st, although timing can be flexible.

Essential Functions

  • Independently perform research experiments on an independent project and properly record data according to research protocols under the mentorship of Dr. Grillo.
  • Troubleshoot experimental protocols, organize complex data, and analyze/interpret results within the context of the overarching research project.
  • Read, analyze, evaluate, and critique primary research to enhance expertise.
  • Actively help and/or train other laboratory personnel including postdoctoral scientists, graduate students, and undergraduate students based on professional training or functional experience.
  • Establish and manage collaborations between diverse research laboratories.
  • Effectively communicate experimental hypotheses, protocols, analyses, results, and project details in one-on-one or group meetings, journal clubs, conferences, etc.
  • Actively participate in the writing of research papers, grants, and other documents.
  • Attend scientific conferences, meetings, and workshops to enhance the career development of the candidate.
  • Apply for extramural funding and training opportunities.
  • Mentor junior trainees to enhance their career development.
  • Demonstrate continual success in performing increasingly complex experiments or projects that require improved technical skills.
  • Perform related duties based on laboratory needs. This job description may change as the research project progresses.

Additional Qualifications Considered

  • Strong record of research accomplishments and peer-reviewed publications.
  • Demonstrated oral and written communication skills through previous publications and conference presentations.
  • Presentations of scientific results at national meetings.
  • Expertise in mitochondrial metabolism, hypoxia, mTOR, and/or metals in age-related neurodegenerative diseases.
  • Experience working with mouse models of human disease.
  • Experience in isolating primary neurons, cell culture, and aseptic technique.
  • Previous work with iPSC-derived neurons.
