Postdoctoral fellow position available in the Soukas lab in Massachusetts

General Hospital/Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. This lab, located in the

ultramodern Simches Research Building within the (,

studies the mechanistic genetics of aging and aging associated diseases such as

obesity, diabetes, and cancer using vertebrate and invertebrate genetics,

physiology, and metabolism.


The postdoctoral fellow will conduct systems level genetic and genomic

experiments using vertebrate and invertebrate systems (mouse, human, and C.

elegans) to identify and analyze genes required for aging, health, and disease.

This is a unique opportunity to leverage the strength of invertebrate genetics with

the medical relevance of mammalian genetics to make discoveries that are

important for human health and metabolic diseases. The lab employs a

multidisciplinary approach using genomics, genetics, molecular biology,

biochemistry, and cell biology.


We are seeking a highly motivated individual with a doctorate degree in

molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, or related sciences. Prior lab

experience in genetics, genomics, biochemistry, or metabolism is preferred.

Experience with murine or C. elegans genetics and metabolism is not required,

but is a plus. Skills in bioinformatics are highly valued. The fellow will conduct

independent scientific experiments designed in conjunction with Dr. Soukas and

will present at lab meetings and at local scientific conferences. It is important

that the candidate possess an eagerness to learn new scientific ideas and


Earliest start date is July 2018. Interested applicants should submit their CV and
