Buck Institute for Research on Aging

Novato, CA

October 2018


The Buck Institute for Research on Aging is looking to hire a faculty member at any level (assistant/associate/full professor) who will run a vigorous, externally funded research program centered on the use of computational tools to solve problems in aging biology. As Institute labs and others in the aging field generate massive observational data sets across the lifespan, in model organisms and in human clinical samples, the need becomes ever more urgent for analysis paradigms that can make sense of the data. We are in search of a computational biologist whose goal is to jump into the breach, to make computational discoveries of the mechanisms that underlie aging and age-associated disease. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in machine learning and artificial intelligence, but all computational biologists with a background or interest in aging are encouraged to apply.


The incumbent will build a world-class computational biology research program, and will direct and/or contribute to the development of computational biology resources at the Institute.


Interested applicants should apply online and upload a full CV listing current grant support plus a single PDF to include  a cover letter, one-page vision statement, and the names of three references. The deadline for full consideration is December 1, 2018.


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.
