MOLECULAR BIOLOGY OF AGING
The Department of Physiology and the Sanders Brown Aging Center at the
University of Kentucky College of Medicine invite applications for a
tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level. We seek an
individual who will establish a strong research program that emphasizes
the use of molecular biological approaches to study age-related changes in
physiological functions and who will participate in our teaching program.
Special consideration will be given to candidates who complement existing
strengths in the Aging Center including the study of Alzheimers disease
and/or mechanisms of oxidative damage, neuron-glia interactions and/or
neuronal plasticity. Candidates with training in other molecular and
cellular aspects of aging will also be considered. Interactions with
faculty within the College of Medicine, School of Biological Sciences,
College of Agriculture and the Markey Cancer Center provide a particularly
stimulating research environment.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree and at least three
years of postdoctoral experience. Interested individuals should send a
curriculum vitae, a detailed statement of past experience, future research
plans, and 3 letters of reference to: Dr. Phyllis M. Wise, Chair,
