Research Fellow at University of Michigan

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in bioinformatics to join University of Michigan, USA. The funding allows successful candidate to work for 5 years. Applicants should apply as soon as possible.

There are currently three projects in the lab: The first project is to characterize the role of Sestrins in aging-related physiological contexts. The second project is to identify and characterize novel components involved in autophagy-mediated protection of aging and age-associated diseases. The last project is to understand stress-induced changes of the mRNA transcriptome at subcellular and single cell resolution. Within the context of these lab projects, trainees are encouraged to independently pursue what they are interested in and familiar with.

Salary and benefits will be commensurate with the candidate’s experience and accomplishments.

We study the relationship between stress, aging and age-associated pathologies. We use a variety of tools, including animal models such as mouse and Drosophila, in vitro systems such as cell culture and enzymatic assays, and bioinformatic tools for analyzing transcriptome-level information. We specifically focus on tissues that demand high energy expenditure, such as liver, muscle and heart. The successful applicant is expected to design and perform research and regularly interact with the principal investigator and other researchers in the Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology and the Institute of Gerontology of the University of Michigan.

In addition to a Ph.D., the candidate should have an extensive experience in molecular, genetic, biochemical, cell biological, physiological and/or bioinformatic techniques. A record of publications commensurate with the level of training will be also expected. The applicant should have been fully dedicated to biomedical research and have a strong desire to make a major contribution in the field of aging biology.

Please submit a cover letter and CV with the name of three references to

We expect that, after 3-5 years of training, the postdoctoral trainee will be highly successful with multiple publications and secure a permanent position in academia, industry or the government. Promoting trainee career development and success is one of the top priorities of our group.

Michigan Medicine conducts background screening and pre-employment drug testing on job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent job offer and may use a third party administrator to conduct background screenings. Background screenings are performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Report Act. Pre-employment drug testing applies to all selected candidates, including new or additional faculty and staff appointments, as well as transfers from other U-M campuses.

Job openings are posted for a minimum of seven calendar days. The review and selection process maybegin as early as the eighth day after posting.Thisopening may be removed from posting boards and filled anytime after the minimum posting period has ended.

The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
