Job Description
A multidisciplinary group of researchers that aims to understand the biological mechanisms of healthy aging in human cohorts enriched for longevity is seeking postdoctoral fellows to join their team at Einstein's Institute for Aging Research, a leading institution in human aging research, headed by Nir Barzilai, M.D. Einstein is home to the Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging and the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Human Aging. We offer a stimulating, supportive, and collaborative environment for candidates with an interest in the biology of aging and multi-omics. The candidate will have access to genomic, proteomic, metabolomic, and clinical datasets, as well as samples from Einstein's familial longevity studies.

Recent NIH-funded projects include discovery of resilience mechanisms to Alzheimer's disease and biological regulation of pathways implicated in longevity. Drs. Nir Barzilai, Sofiya Milman, and Zhengdong Zhang are looking for innovative, motivated candidates, who can work independently but also collaborate closely with clinical, basic and computational researchers. Applicants will be expected to apply and develop computational tools to model and address questions in human biology and aging. T32 funding is available and transition to a faculty position is possible. The group has a strong track record of mentoring early career scientists in obtaining career development awards and transitioning to research independence.
