Position Summary:

The successful candidate will conduct research focused on the basic biological mechanisms of aging as part of the Anderson laboratory. The funded project for this position opening focuses on the intersection of aging, caloric restriction (CR), and the progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathology using genetic mouse models of AD. In particular, the work will test the hypothesis that CR creates a healthy neuronal environment through changes in brain metabolism, and that these metabolic shifts will oppose AD-related pathology. The successful candidate will design and implement strategies for investigating the mechanisms connecting metabolism, caloric restriction, and aging. The candidate is also expected to explore new avenues and seek independent funding as part of their own career development.
The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
