Scientist II (academic equivalent to Assistant Professor)
This is a group hire with up to 5 positions to be filled.
The HNRCA is increasing its scientific research capacity with the hire of up to five scientists (academic equivalent to assistant professor). A successful candidate should have strong potential for multidisciplinary collaboration in basic and clinical research involving expanding human healthspan or a research portfolio that includes other age-related topics such as cellular senescence, etc. Candidates should be highly motivated and committed to the HNRCA’s mission to promote healthy aging through nutrition science, diet and physical activity. We will hire scientists who represent a variety of disciplines and share a commitment to work collaboratively to promote a cohesive Center-wide research agenda. While the specific field of expertise is open, we are interested in scientists whose expertise in aging will build on the existing work of the HNRCA or can be leveraged to develop new complementary focus areas. We are also looking for scientists who have worked in environments that encouraged a team science approach to research. The successful candidates should have a PhD, MD or equivalent and 3-5 years of experience, including postdoctoral training, and have strong potential to direct their own research, engage in team science and secure independent grant funding.
Individuals wishing to apply should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, statement of research interest and list of three references to Eleanor Davison
