Postdoc in Madison with the Anderson lab
University of Wisconsin-Madison Interested in aging? Have some experience with bioinformatics, computer science, and/or high-throughput biological data analysis? Position available to work on metabolism, aging, and models of delayed aging. Join the Anderson lab! This position is supported by a newly funded R01. The work will focus on high-throughput molecular profiling data derived from the UW-Madison rhesus monkey caloric restriction (CR) and aging study. To apply, please send a current CV and letter of interest to Dr. Rozalyn Anderson (firstname.lastname@example.org), including “Postdoc Application” in the subject line.
Postdoctoral Researcher and research associate – Zhou lab@Buck institute
Buck institute The Zhou lab @ Buck Institute is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher and a research associate to study proteostasis and mitochondria during stress, cellular aging, and the development of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The Zhou lab uses budding yeast, together with human cell culture and fruit fly, to study the cell biology of aging with an emphasis on proteostasis and mitochondria/lysosome. Proteostasis defect and mitochondrial/lysosomal dysfunction are two conserved hallmarks of aging and many neurodegenerative diseases, including AD. Budding yeast is an ideal model to study the cellular aging and rejuvenation processes, both happen at the same time along the axis of asymmetric cell division. We use multiple cutting-edge imaging methods, high-throughput screening, biochemistry, bioinformatics, and machine learning to address systematically the response of cellular proteome towards stress, aging and AD-related proteins. We also design new technologies and engineer new tools to solve the problems we face.
As proteostasis and mitochondrial components are conserved in all organisms, our strategy is to take advantage of high-throughput platforms to quickly discover new fundamental mechanisms in budding yeast and use novel mechanisms to guide further exploration in other animal models (e.g. fruit fly) and human cells. We are interested in questions related to protein folding, protein misfolding/aggregation, phase separation, mitochondrial biogenesis and dysfunctions, as well as other cell biological questions, in response to stress, aging, and AD. Our goal is for the Postdoctoral Researcher to publish several high-profile papers and prepare projects they can take to their own lab in the future. For research associate, we offer opportunities to lead independent projects that can generate co-author or first author papers after initial training with senior postdocs.
Your success is the common interest we share! Please check the Zhou lab webpage for recent publications
University of Minnesota The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to perform experiments, analyze data, and write manuscripts to ensure the successful execution of a recently funded NIH R01 grant.
