A postdoctoral research position is available to study the cellular, genetic, and epigenetic mechanisms of maternal age effects on offspring health and lifespan. The project will focus on the role of mitochondrial dynamics and function in maternal age effects, using molecular, bioinformatic, biochemical, and imaging techniques.
This is an NIH-funded project in the laboratory of Dr. Kristin Gribble at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA. The lab researches the mechanisms and evolution of aging and maternal and transgenerational effects on offspring health. We use rotifers as a model system for our work. For more information about the lab’s research and publications, see mbl.edu/jbpc/gribble.
Applicants should possess a Ph.D. molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, bioinformatics, or a related field. The ideal candidate will have a record of scientific rigor, productivity, and creativity. Excellent oral and written communication skills are required. Knowledge of rotifer biology is not required; highly motivated individuals with experience in other model systems and with a background in bioinformatics, cell biology, biochemistry, epigenetics, and/or imaging are encouraged to apply. Salary commensurate with experience and qualifications.
Apply for this position via the MBL careers website. Please submit (1) a cover letter with a brief description of your research experience and how you will contribute to research on the mechanisms of maternal effects on offspring, (2) a CV, and (3) contact information for at least three references.
