The Samuelson laboratory at the University of Rochester Medical Center is seeking exceptional candidates for a Postdoctoral Associate position. The position is available immediately and fully funded, but the successful applicant will apply for external fellowships as appropriate.
The Samuelson laboratory is broadly interested in understanding aging at the genetic, molecular, cellular, and organismal level. The research direction will focus on how longevity signals are integrated to regulate the expression of transcriptional and metabolic programs that ultimately determine the progression of aging in C. elegans (see Johnson et al. (2014) PLoS Genetics 10(4):e1004278). This research is supported by a grant from the National Institute On Aging of the National Institutes of Health.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. with a strong training molecular and cellular biology, and genetics. Previous training in C. elegans research is strongly desirable, but not required.
