POSTDOCTORAL POSITION TO STUDY TELOMERE-INDUCED SENESCECE
A Postdoctoral position is available in the NJMS-Cancer Center, Rutgers University to study the molecular mechanisms and the physiological consequences of telomere dysfunction-induced senescence in mammals. Projects will identify the signals and pathways that lead to telomere erosion and dysfunction in human cells and will analyze the consequences of DNA damage signaling at telomeres in mammalian cell cultures, in mice, and in human tissue.
A Ph.D., obtained within the last 6 months and a strong background in cell biology or molecular biology is required. A background in telomere biology, DNA damage responses, and/or cellular senescence is preferred. In addition, the applicant must have excellent written and verbal communication skills. Experience with mammalian cell culture, immunofluorescence/cytochemistry, and animal xenograft cancer models is advantageous.
We are located in Newark, NJ which is a major transportation hub with an easy commute to New York City and within driving distances to other metropolitan areas such as Philadelphia, Washington DC, and Boston.
