Postdoctoral Positions in Aging Research in the Lapierre Lab at Brown University

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Lapierre lab in the department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry at Brown University (For more info: Lapierre, Louis).

Our NIH-funded research program is focused on elucidating the molecular mechanisms of aging and longevity by studying transcriptional and metabolic regulations of proteostatic processes, including the autophagy/lysosomal pathway. Our ultimate goal is to find solutions to prevent age-related diseases, such as neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, ALS, etc.) and metabolic diseases (fatty liver, obesity, etc.).

Ph.D. in Biochemistry, Cell Biology or related fields.
Experience with C. elegans is an asset
