Postdoctoral Associate - Aging and Computational Biology (Higgins-Chen Lab)

Location: Yale University, Higgins-Chen Lab

Job Description:

The Higgins-Chen Lab at Yale University invites applications for up to 2 postdoctoral associate positions in the biology of aging, supported by multiple NIH R01 grants. The lab is focused on using machine learning approaches to identify omics-based biomarkers to estimate the biological age of individuals, then adapt the biomarkers for use in clinical trials of geroscience-based interventions to prevent or treat age-related diseases. The lab also studies the interaction between aging and mental health. Lab members primarily perform computational analysis, collaborating with clinicians, experimental biologists, epidemiologists, social scientists, and industry to train and validate biomarkers.

Postdoctoral associates may work on one or more projects and are encouraged to incorporate their other research interests into the work. They may work collaboratively with one or more current lab members for these projects. Projects we are currently hiring for include:

1)      Molecular signatures of Alzheimer’s resilience: Work with a unique multi-omics multi-region brain dataset for Alzheimer’s disease, highly enriched in individuals with ApoE E4 alleles yet are resilient to cognitive decline. A postdoctoral associate would work to identify molecular signatures of resilience using individual data types and perform multi-omic integration.

2)      Epigenetic clocks to link aging hallmarks, interventions, and outcomes: Epigenetic clocks based on DNA methylation are commonly used aging biomarkers in epidemiological studies. However, there is little mechanistic understanding of how they relate to molecular hallmarks of aging, risk for age-related disease, and response to aging interventions, limiting their potential use in clinical trials. A postdoctoral associate would work to integrate data from multiple collaborators and test new computational approaches to develop mechanistically informed epigenetic aging clocks.

3)      Computational solutions for adapting aging biomarkers to longitudinal studies and clinical trials: Aging biomarkers are needed to longitudinally monitor an individual’s aging process and their response to interventions. A postdoctoral associate would work with longitudinal biomarker data to develop computational methods for utilizing longitudinal data in training and validation of aging biomarkers, and methods for detecting and correcting for confounders.

Another major focus of the lab is investigating how mental health influences the aging process and identifying ways to improve the long-term health of individuals with psychiatric disorders. Postdoctoral associates are welcome to contribute to these projects.


  1. Excellent collaboration skills and ability to contribute to a positive, supportive, and collegial lab environment
  2. A PhD, MD, or MD/PhD and experience in geroscience, cellular and molecular biology, computational biology, bioinformatics, or a related field.
  3. Strong computational skills, including experience with programming languages such as R or Python, and supervised and unsupervised machine learning methods
  4. Motivated and self-directed to complete research projects and learn new skills needed for that research

Preferred Qualifications:

  1. Experience and domain knowledge relevant to one or more projects listed above (Alzheimer’s Disease, mouse or cell culture aging studies, epidemiology of aging, etc)
  2. Expertise in computational methods relevant to one or more projects listed above (proteomics analysis, multi-omics data integration, advanced longitudinal modeling, etc.)

Application Process:

Information on Yale postdoc positions (including salary, benefits) can be found here:

Appointments are initially for 1-2 years, are renewable, and have flexible start dates. The positions are available immediately and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Qualified applicants may be contacted to schedule an interview.
Interested candidates should submit the following application materials:

  1. A 1-page cover letter describing your research interests, career goals, and how your expertise may contribute to one of the above projects (please focus your letter on one project – we may discuss other projects during the interview).
  2. A detailed CV or Biosketch
  3. Contact information for three professional references who can provide letters of recommendation or discussions by phone upon request.
