Postdoctoral position: Samuelson lab @ University of Rochester Medical Center

The Samuelson lab at the University of Rochester Medical Center is seeking exceptional candidates for a Postdoctoral fellow position. The position is available immediately with a potential for 5 years of support, but the successful applicant will apply for external fellowships as appropriate.

The research direction will focus on how diverse 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 recently awarded grant from the National Institute On Aging of the National Institutes of Health.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. with a strong background in genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology. Previous training in C. elegans research is strongly desirable.
