We are looking for a talented researcher to join Titov lab at University of California, Berkeley to study the interplay between energy metabolism and aging using nematode C. elegans. The successful candidate will lead the NIH Director's New Innovator Award-funded project focused on using novel genetically encoded tools (GEMMs) to manipulate metabolism in live C. elegans in compartment- and tissue-specific manner. The availability of these novel tools will allow us to establish causal connections between specific diet-induced changes in metabolism and diet-induced phenotypes including lifespan extension, foraging behavior, reproduction, gene expression changes etc.


The successful candidate will work under the broad direction of the principal investigator. Particular experimental techniques that we plan to use include but are not limited to generation of transgenic C. elegans capable of inducible- and tissue-specific expression of GEMMs using MosSCI, operation of our lab's Lifespan Machine to automatically measure lifespan of thousands of C. elegans, generation and analysis of RNAseq and proteomics datasets, use of genetically encoded fluorescence sensors to measure metabolic state of C. elegans and various other assays to measure the physiological state of C. elegans under different conditions.

Minimum/Basic Qualifications required at the time of application:

  • PhD or equivalent international degree.

Additional Qualifications must be met by the start of the job:

  • At least 2 years of postdoctoral experience.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • PhD in chemistry, biology or a related field
  • Postdoc experience in biology or a related field.
  • Extensive experience working with nematode C. elegans
  • Extensive experience working on aging and/or metabolism

Salary: This is a full-time position. Salary is commensurate with experience.
