Biology of Aging University of Michigan

The Geriatrics Center and Biology of Aging Group at the University of Michigan are accepting applications for up to three Assistant or Associate Professor positions. We are seeking individuals who have the ambition, experience, and ability to develop a nationally prominent research program that uses methods in modern cell biology, genetics, and/or molecular biology to solve important problems in the biology of aging and the relationship between aging and late-life diseases. The experimental system may involve mammalian or other vertebrate animal models, invertebrate systems, or human cells or tissues.

Successful candidates will join a highly-interactive, well-funded, and creative faculty, in an environment that includes the Paul F. Glenn Center for Aging Research, NIA Intervention Testing Program, Michigan Biology of Cardiovascular Aging, Claude Pepper Older Americans Independence Center, the Ann Arbor VA GRECC, and a long-standing NIA-funded training grant. These programs, together with substantial start-up funding, provide valuable infrastructure and resources for new and established researchers. This recruitment is the beginning of an extended initiative to expand the Center with six new faculty positions and to further enhance Michigan’s long-standing excellence in aging research. Each newly recruited faculty member will receive a primary appointment in a basic science or clinical department as appropriate. Minimum qualifications are a PhD, MD, or equivalent degree, several years of highly productive postdoctoral research, and a clear interest in fundamental processes relevant to biogerontology.

Applicants should submit a CV, a 1-2 page description of research interests, a synopsis of current and previous research support, and contact information for 3 – 5 referees, to Scott Pletcher, 3021 BSRB, Box 2200, 109 Zina Pitcher Place, Ann Arbor, MI  48109-2200; or, preferably, by e-mail to spletch@umich.edu.

The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity employer committed to maintaining diversity in its hiring programs.
