Key Responsibilities

Specifically, we are seeking talented, highly motivated individuals who are broadly interested in the molecular and cellular basis of aging and age-related disease. Our research focuses on identifying the molecular changes that occur with age that contribute to development of age-related diseases, including but not limited to cancer biology. We are interested in understanding dysregulation of protein homeostasis with age and under cellular stress conditions, including the upstream regulatory signaling pathways and downstream targets of E3 ubiquitin ligases.

Ideal candidate will be expected to develop the project independently and will also have the opportunity to interact and participate in other studies of our multidisciplinary group of aging and cancer researchers in the lab and throughout the department. Our research team highly values creativity and independence in a collaborative and collegial academic environment. Learn more about Dr. Brian North here:

Successful candidates will have a recent doctorate in areas related to cell and molecular biology, protein degradation, cancer, and/or aging, supported by strong publications. Prior experience in mouse models of aging and/or cancer would be advantageous.

Candidates will also be asked to assist in training of laboratory staff and graduate students in research techniques as well as writing grant proposals. This is a full time, grant funded role.


  • Applicants should have a Ph.D., M.D., or M.D./Ph.D. degree
  • Significant research accomplishments and scholarly promise
