A postdoctoral position is available in the Ghazi lab at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine to study the genetics of aging in C. elegans.
This is a new lab at the Rangos Research Center, a state-of-the-art research unit with a thriving scientific community in the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. We are interested in the genetics of longevity with particular focus on the intersection of reproduction and aging. The lab employs genetics, molecular biology, microscopy and genomic approaches to understand how signals from the reproductive system influence lifespan. The selected candidate will study genes involved in a network that operates between the germline and the intestine to regulate aging. A doctoral degree in a biomedical field is required. Experience with model organisms is preferred, but not essential. Candidates interested in aging research are encouraged to apply. The successful applicant will receive training with the aim of progressing towards an independent science career.
Salary will be commensurate with experience, qualifications as well as productivity.
Interested candidates can email their resume to Arjumand.Ghazi@chp.edu
