Default Postdoc: Mitochondrial genetics of aging at Brown University



Postdoc at Brown University: Mitochondrial genetics of aging in
Drosophila



A postdoc position is available in the laboratory of David Rand and
Brown University to work on nuclear-mitochondrial genetic interactions
affecting longevity. The general theme of this NIH funded project is
to study the epistatic interactions among nuclear and mitochondrial
genotypes that diet-dependent alterations in longevity and related,
physiological and biochemical traits in Drosophila. Mitochondrial
genotypes from different strains and species of the melanogaster
subgroup are placed on various nuclear genetic backgrounds to dissect
the genetic basis of longevity and the extension of longevity by diet
restriction. The project involves demography experiments, molecular
and quantitative genetic assays of Drosophila strains, genetic mapping
experiments, gene expression and biochemical assays of specific
genotypes, and inferences from molecular population genetics and
evolution.



Applicants must have completed their PhD before starting the position,
and have a strong record of accomplishment from their dissertation
work. Applicants should have some combination of experience with
molecular genetic techniques, Drosophila genetics, longevity of life
history analyses, quantitative genetics, biochemical assays, molecular
evolution, computational analysis, and an interest in evolution or
genetics. The appointment is open for up to 3 years, and successful
candidates will receive guidance in the preparation of an NIH NRSA
Fellowship to pursue related projects.



The position is available now and applications will be reviewed until
the position is filled. To apply please send 1) a CV, 2) a short
statement of research interests and experience, including a paragraph
on how your previous experience makes you well qualified for this
position, and 3) contact information for three references to:
