The new Hansen lab is inviting applications for a Research Associate. With the help of scientists, the RA carries out specialized laboratory procedures for research projects at the Buck Institute. The focus of our research is to understand how the basic cellular recycling process called autophagy is regulated during aging, using the nematode C. elegans and mammalian cell culture systems and a combination of biochemical, imaging, and genetic approaches. Work schedule flexibility may be needed.

ABOUT THE BUCK INSTITUTE
Our success will ultimately change healthcare. At the Buck, we aim 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. We are an independent, non-profit institution located in Marin County, CA, with the goal of increasing human healthspan, or the healthy years of life. 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. 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.
Interested candidates should apply online and upload a CV and cover letter describing why you should be considered for this position.
NOTE: Foreigners who apply for this position will only be accepted under the F1 OPT or STEM OPT extension.
