About the Hansen lab
Our lab at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in Novato (~30 min north of San Francisco) is looking for highly enthusiastic and talented scientists, who would be excited to study conserved molecular mechanisms underlying the aging process in a lab known for its strong commitment to mentoring and training early-career scientists.
We particularly focus on autophagy, a fundamental cellular recycling process linked to numerous age-related diseases such as neurodegeneration and cancer. For our studies, we use a combination of cell biology, genetics, biochemistry, and high-resolution microscopy primarily in the nematode C. elegans, as well as mammalian cell culture systems to understand how autophagy may play a protective role during aging and to help develop therapies against age-related diseases.
Interested candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, cell biology, physiology, or similar. Candidates are expected to be highly motivated, talented, and hardworking, with a strong scientific track record. Applicants with backgrounds in aging biology and/or proteostasis, as well as prior experience with C. elegans are particularly encouraged to apply. All applicants are required to have good communication skills and be proficient in spoken and written English.
Applicants should click the “Apply” button and scroll down to view open positions in the Hansen lab. Please submit a cover letter along with a current CV including list of publications and contact information for three references.

About the Buck Institute
The mission of the Buck Institute is to end the threat of age-related diseases for this and future generations by bringing together the most capable and passionate scientists from a broad range of disciplines to identify and impede the ways in which we age. Globally recognized as the pioneer and leader in efforts to target aging—the number one risk factor for diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cancer, macular degeneration, heart disease, and diabetes—the Buck seeks to help people live better longer, and our success will ultimately change healthcare. We are an equal opportunity employer and strive to create an atmosphere where diversity of identity, experience, and background are welcomed, valued, and supported. Candidates who contribute to this diversity are strongly encouraged to apply.
