Job Description

Postdoctoral Associate | Redox Systems Biology

Agoro Lab

Bar Harbor, ME

The Agoro lab at the Jackson Laboratory for Mammalian Genetics is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to study redox molecular mechanisms that drive aging and chronic kidney disease. The overall goal of our laboratory is to understand the aging and kidney disease progression mechanisms using a systems biology approach as well as identifying new therapeutic strategies to improve renal function. Our laboratory is specialized in using a multidisciplinary approach that integrates genomics, proteomics, and metallomics. The postdoctoral scientist will lead an exciting project that applies a broad range of cutting-edge technologies, such as CRISPR-based tools, single-cell multi-omics, and kidney disease mouse models. The ideal candidate would have a strong background in molecular biology, mass spectrometry and genomic technologies. Exceptional candidates can show early independence through the JAX Scholars Program as well as applying for a T32 fellowship that is funded by the National Institute for Aging (NIA). The selected candidate will be interacting with members of the JAX Center for Aging Research which is largely funded by two of NIH's NIA grants: the Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging and NIA's Aging Interventions Testing Program.

The Jackson Laboratory (http://www.jax.org) in Bar Harbor, Maine, USA, is recognized internationally for its research excellence, unparalleled mouse resources, state of the art facilities for computational science, mass spectrometry, imaging science, genome technologies, outstanding training environment characterized by scientific collaborations, and exceptional core services - all within a spectacular setting adjacent to Acadia National Park. In addition to lab-based training, JAX has developed a unique program for trainees to expand their professional skills in science communication, entrepreneurship, teaching, mentoring and laboratory management to best prepare postdocs for future career opportunities.

QUALIFICATIONS

  • Ph.D. in cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, or related field of study.
  • Strong training background in molecular biology, cell biology, next-generation sequencing technology.
  • Experience in computational biology, genetic screens and single-cell technologies are particularly preferred.
  • Candidates should have at least one 1st author publication record in peer-reviewed journal.
  • Excellent writing and communication skills, able to work independently and effectively with other members in a productive team.

**Please submit your current CV, 3 letters of reference, and 1-page (maximum) statement of Research Interests and Career Goals at time of application. **

       

We are a diverse and inclusive research group, aspiring to produce top science and scientists through attentive and progressive mentoring and interdisciplinary teamwork.
