National Institute on Aging
The National Institute on Aging (NIA), a major research component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is recruiting for one postdoctoral fellow in the Laboratory of Genetics and Genomics (LGG) of the Intramural Research Program (IRP) in Baltimore, Maryland. Projects will involve genetic, biochemical, molecular, and cellular approaches to define the mechanisms for how telomere erosion/genome instability contributes to human disease and age-associated organ decline. The current focus is on (1) the novel factors that modulate telomere and genome maintenance; (2) the effect of short telomeres on human diseases of accelerated aging and cancers; and 3) the molecular pathways that underlie the role of mitochondrial impairment and cell metabolism upon telomere dysfunction, and their relevance to the therapeutic intervention of telomere loss/dysfunction-mediated pathophysiology. Additional information is available at the following website (https://www.nia.nih.gov/research/labs/lgg/section-telomere-maintenance).
The candidate must have a Ph.D. or M.D. in a relevant field, and no more than three years of postdoctoral research experience. Salary is commensurate with experience and accomplishments. To be considered, applicants should send curriculum vitae, along with names of three references to [email protected] Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
DHHS and NIH are Equal Opportunity Employers. The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.
