Postdoctoral Fellow- Comparative biology of aging, teaching opportunities
Augusta University
The newly established Hoffman lab in the Department of Biological Sciences at Augusta University is hiring an outstanding Postdoctoral Fellow interested in genetics, metabolism, and aging. The Postdoctoral Fellow will be working on an NIH funded project looking at the role of tryptophan metabolism on longevity and health in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster; however, there are opportunities to work on other model and non-model organisms. We are looking for someone who has a background in molecular biology and has a special interest in the comparative biology of aging. Overall, the Hoffman lab uses a variety of molecular techniques, organismal health assays, and statistical analyses of ‘omics’ data to answer questions about the metabolic and genetic pathways that influence aging across species.

In addition to research, this is an ideal opportunity for those candidates interested in teaching and mentorship. The hired postdoc will have the potential to be instructor of record for classes in the Department of Biological Sciences, as well as directly mentor undergraduate researchers.

Minimum qualifications: PhD in biology, genetics, biochemistry, or related field from an accredited college or university.

Please apply through the Augusta University HR jobs site: www.augusta.edu/hr/jobs (job listing #255762).

Any questions or emails of interest can be addressed directly to Jessica Hoffman (jehoffman@augusta.edu).
