1. Postdoctoral positions are now available from a National Institute on Aging Training Grant to work with one of some 25 participating faculty. Contact Steven Austad, Ph.D. for information. A list of participating faculty with links to their contact information and individual Web pages may be found in the far right column. For more information regarding application requirements for this postdoctoral fellowship, link here: NIA Biology of Aging Training Grant.
U.S. Citizenship or Permanent Resident Required.
2. A postdoctoral fellow position is available to start immediately in the laboratory of Yuji Ikeno, M.D., Ph.D. at the Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies at the Texas Research Park Campus of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, Texas.
Dr. Ikeno's laboratory is studying the effects of oxidative stress on aging and age-related pathology, using unique animal models that overexpress or downregulate antioxidant enzymes, including thioredoxin and Cu/Zn SOD. Research projects include: (1) redox sensitive signaling with mice that overexpress thioredoxin 1 or 2; and (2) obesity/inflammation/oxidative damage/insulin signaling with Cu/ZnSOD transgenic rats or mice fed a high-fat diet; (3) anti-tumor actions of caloric restriction.
Experience in standard techniques of molecular and cellular biology is required. A strong research background in the area of oxidative stress and signaling is appreciated.
Please use the link provided to contact Dr. Ikeno for more information.
3. A postdoctoral fellowship available in the laboratory of Laboratory of Veronica Galvan, Ph.D. at he Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies to apply neurobehavioral, physiological, in vivo functional and optical imaging as well as cellular and molecular pathways that drive brain aging. The aim of these studies is to determine how these pathways lead to Alzheimer's disease and other age-associated neurological diseases. Another focus of the postdoctoral fellowship is to determine the role of signals that emanate from the nervous system in the control of organismal aging in mammals.
We are looking for candidates with experience with rodent models as well as with the standard techniques of molecular and cellular biology. Experience with neurobehavioral tools and/or with optical imaging are strengths. A research background in neurobiology, aging or cerebrovascular biology is preferred. This position is open only to US citizens or permanent residents.
To apply, please send (1) a curriculum vitae, (2) a letter describing your research accomplishments to date, (3) the nature of your experience and interest in the biology of aging, (4) the nature of your experience and interest in neuroscience, (5) three letters of reference, and (6) the earliest date you could start your fellowship to Dr. Veronica Galvan at email@example.com.
