A Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Mammalian Female Reproductive
Aging and Neurodegeneration. (Novato, California)
The Lei Lab at the Buck Institute
(https://www.buckinstitute.org) seeks a highly motivated
postdoctoral researcher to investigate the role of female
reproductive aging in the onset of neurodegeneration. The research
in the Lei lab focuses on cellular and molecular mechanisms
underlying mammalian ovarian reserve formation, maintenance, and
the associated female reproductive health issues. The Lei lab
utilizes broad cellular and molecular experimental approaches,
including genetically modified mouse models, in vitro organ
culture, live-imaging and single-cell analyses.
* Ph.D. in biological science. * Previous research experience in
reproductive biology or neuroscience using genetically modified
mice is preferred.
Our success will ultimately change healthcare. At the Buck, we
aim to end the threat of age-related diseases for this and future
generations by bringing together the most capable and passionate
scientists from a broad range of disciplines to identify and impede
the ways in which we age. We are an independent, nonprofit
institution located in Marin County, CA, with the goal of
increasing human healthspan, or the healthy years of life. Globally
recognized as the pioneer and leader in efforts to target aging-the
number one risk factor for diseases including Alzheimer's,
Parkinson's, cancer, macular degeneration, heart disease, and
diabetes-the Buck seeks to help people live better longer.
The Buck Institute has an excellent postdoctoral research
program. We offer competitive salaries, excellent benefits, a
dynamic work environment, and new state-of-the-art facilities.
