The University of Michigan Geriatrics Center is seeking to hire a tenure track faculty member to carry out independent research focused on the biology of aging and its impact on late life pathophysiology. The ideal candidate would be working on a fundamental problem in the cellular and molecular biology of aging, using a mixture of genetic, bioinformatic, and biochemical methods as appropriate and committed to establishing a reputation for creative leadership in biological gerontology.
Successful candidates will be housed in newly constructed Biogerontology lab space and will receive a primary appointment in a basic science or research-oriented clinical department as appropriate. Minimum qualifications are a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree, plus several years of highly productive postdoctoral research, and a clear interest in problems relevant to biogerontology. The Center has enjoyed longstanding support from the National Institute on Aging for its Nathan Shock Center, Claude Pepper Center, and Aging Training programs, which provide valuable infrastructure for new and established researchers. Substantial start-up funding will be available for each selected candidate.
Applicants should submit a CV, a brief (1–2 page) description of research interests, a synopsis of current and previous research support, and contact information for 3–5 referees, to Rich Miller, 3001 BSRB, Box 2200, 109 Zina Pitcher Place, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-2200.
