Postdoctoral Research in Epigenetic Mechanisms, Marine Biological Laboratory, United States

Expires on: 04/30/2024

The Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA, is seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Scientist to investigate the cellular, genetic, and epigenetic mechanisms underlying maternal age effects on offspring health and lifespan. This NIH-funded project, led by Dr. Kristin Gribble, focuses on elucidating the role of mitochondrial dynamics and metabolism in maternal age effects using molecular, bioinformatic, biochemical, and imaging techniques. The successful candidate will join a dynamic research team and contribute to advancing our understanding of aging biology.


  • Ph.D. in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, bioinformatics, or a related field.
  • Strong scientific rigor, productivity, and creativity demonstrated through research experience.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills.
  • Experience in molecular biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, cell biology, epigenetics, and/or imaging.
  • Knowledge of rotifer biology is not required; individuals with experience in other model systems are encouraged to apply.

How to Apply:

Interested candidates should submit the following documents:

  1. Cover letter: Provide a brief description of your research experience and how you will contribute to research on the mechanisms of maternal age effects on offspring.
  2. Curriculum vitae (CV): Include relevant academic and research experience.
  3. Contact information for at least three references.
