Postdoctoral Scholar

Institute for Systems Biology
Kane Lab
United States WA Seattle


The Kane lab at the Institute for Systems Biology is seeking a highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellow interested in the biology of aging to lead projects focused on understanding, measuring and predicting heterogeneity in aging, and particularly identifying determinants and biomarkers of frailty. The ideal candidate will have experience in both mouse models and computational analysis, although candidates with extensive experience in either will be considered. The successful applicant will design and carry out experiments/analyses, develop and use large physiological (behavior, whole blood counts, grip, ECG etc) and molecular (clinical measures, metabolomics, transcriptomics, DNA methylation, gut microbiome etc) mouse and human datasets, write manuscripts and publish.

This role will work closely with the PI, as well as other collaborators and offers the opportunity for analysis of ongoing NIH-funded work using already developed datasets, the development of new datasets, and the freedom to pursue one’s own research interests.

Applicants should include a CV and a brief (1-page) cover letter summarizing their background and future research interests.


Successful candidates should have (or shortly be awarded) a Ph.D. in Biology, Systems Biology, Physiology, Computational Biology, Biological or Biomedical Engineering, or a related field. We are looking for candidates proficient in animal husbandry, mouse handling and assessment as well as resulting data analysis/modelling, who are deeply enthusiastic about aging research, have excellent communication skills, and who will thrive in an interdisciplinary research environment.
