National Institute on Aging

The National Institute on Aging (NIA), a major research component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), is recruiting for a postdoctoral position in The Section on DNA Helicases, Laboratory of Molecular Gerontology.  The focus of the Section is to investigate the functions of DNA helicases in pathways that are important for maintenance of genomic stability and prevent symptoms of accelerated aging or cancer.  Genetic and biochemical approaches are used to characterize the roles of helicases in cellular DNA metabolism and the mechanisms of unwinding by human DNA helicases.  Small molecule and RNA interference screens, as well as model eukaryotic systems, are being used to investigate the roles of disease relevant helicases in DNA repair and replication stress response pathways.

Interested candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D. with proven postdoctoral experience and research experience in molecular biology, and training in mammalian cell culture techniques. Salary is commensurate with experience and accomplishments.  Submit letter of interest, curriculum vitae, and references to:

Robert M. Brosh, Jr., Ph.D., Senior Investigator NIA-NIH, Laboratory of Molecular Gerontology, 251 Bayview Blvd., Suite 100, Baltimore, MD 21224 USA.  Phone: 410-558-8578, or E-mail via the 'Apply' button.  For additional information on this position, visit http://www.grc.nia.nih.gov/branches/lmg/rbrosh.htm
