The Jackson Laboratory, a leader in biomedical and genetic research is recruiting outstanding faculty for our research expansion. The Jackson Laboratory has two primary research campuses, one in Bar Harbor, Maine and one in Farmington, Connecticut. Both offer a uniquely collaborative scientific research environment.
Faculty has access to superior scientific support services, unparalleled mouse and genomic resources, postdoctoral and predoctoral training programs, and numerous courses and conferences centered on research in genomics, genetic diseases and biomedicine.
Faculty Positions – Genetics of Aging
We seek scientists with Ph.D., and/or M.D. degrees, who have completed postdoctoral training and have a record of research excellence. Candidates should have the ability to develop a competitive, independently funded research program that takes advantage of the mouse as a genetic model for understanding human biology, diseases of aging, and longevity. Open positions are:
Program Director: In addition to his/her research program, this experienced leader in the field of aging will promote and coordinate the activities of The Jackson Laboratory’s aging program, and spearhead fund-raising efforts in this research area. The Director will lead The Jackson Laboratory Nathan Shock Center of Excellence in the Basic Biology of Aging. The Center focuses Jackson Laboratory researchers’ diverse expertise in biology and genomics on problems of aging, leading to enhanced resources for the aging research community and a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms at work in lifespan and healthspan.
Assistant, Associate or Full Professor—Aging Genetics: Faculty members will run independent labs for relevant biomedical research on the biology of aging and age-associated diseases, will participate in The Jackson Laboratory’s aging programs, and will mentor graduate students, postdoctoral associates and research staff, in a collaborative and supportive environment.
