The Rea Laboratory in the Department of Pathology is seeking to hire a post-doctoral fellow who is interested in extending their research career into the biology of aging. The lab has recently moved to the vibrant city of Seattle and is now expanding. Several new projects are available and the position would suit candidates with research experience, or closely related research experience, in any one of the following areas - deep sequencing, extracellular vesicles, mitochondria, nematode genetics, senescence, stress signaling or synthetic biology. This is a great opportunity for new or junior post-doctoral fellows who enjoy working at the cutting edge of a rapidly moving field and who are looking to cross into a discipline that directly impacts all of the major diseases that limit life of people in the Western world. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in a relevant scientific discipline, such as biochemistry, bio-engineering, genetics, molecular biology. All applicants are encouraged to apply as position suitability will be assessed on multiple criteria. The position requires good communication skills, proficiency in scientific writing and computer competence. This is a full-time position with the possibility for yearly renewal, dependent upon performance. US citizens and permanent residents who fulfill the funding eligibility requirements of the NIH T32 Genetic Approaches to Aging Training Grant (http://www.uwaging.org/training-grant) are particularly encouraged to apply. The start date for this position would be as soon as possible.
