Job DescriptionWe are looking for recent Ph.D to pursue a career in science and biotechnology at the intersection of immunology and aging. People trained in my lab pursue careers in academia, biotech start-ups, venture funds or consultants for large firms. The long-term goal of my research is to understand the role of tissue secretory senescent cells in diseases such as autoimmunity and diseases of aging. We have identified key immune cells that can selectively eliminated senescent cells in a number of diseases associated with aging. We use a combination of mouse models of autoimmunity and humanized mouse models transplanted with senescent cells to investigate the underlying mechanism by which tissue senescent cells contribute to the development of the various diseases. We pay salaries that are more generous than traditional academic scales. The collegiality and interdepartmental organization at UCSF fosters interdisciplinary research that helps hone research skills, critical thinking, and scientific writing for a broad range of jobs.
