Postdoc position in Cellular senescence and age-related pathologies

ERIBA are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious post-doc candidate in the Laboratory of Cellular senescence and age-related pathologies, headed by Prof. Marco Demaria, to study a novel intervention against cellular senescence and the consequence for extending healthy longevity.

The proposed project aims to validate the newly discovered mechanisms for senescent cells survival in both cell culture and in tissues. In parallel, we will screen a curated library of small molecules to identify compounds that achieve selective senescent cells elimination and improves frailty and another age-related dysfunctions in mouse models. In addition, we will analyse datasets derived from human cohorts, and search for correlation between health/disease and the newly discovered mechanisms.

Postdoctoral position at  Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Department of Pharmacology, NJ, USA

The Martínez Zamudio Lab ( is looking for a motivated fresh PhD/early stage postdoctoral scientist with experience in epigenetics to join the laboratory at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Department of Pharmacology.

The candidate will spearhead the experimental and computational arms of ongoing research projects focusing on the function of transcription factor (TF) networks in mediating cell fate transitions at the early stages of oncogenic transformation (focusing on colorectal and/or breast cancer) as well as during aging of the immune system (focusing on monocytes and CD8+ T cells).

Postdoctoral position at St George’s, University of London, UK

This 9-month postdoctoral scientist position is to work with Dot Bennett and Anissa Chikh, collaborating with Cleo Bishop (QMUL), in a novel pilot project to find the mechanism(s) of activation of the core senescence mediator and melanoma suppressor p16 (CDKN2A) in normal human cells, by cell-senescence triggers like DNA damage.  High-quality data from the project will be key in application for longer-term support.  Funded by the Melanoma Foundation.

Closes 14 March.

Research Fellow at UCL (United Kingdom)

UCL are looking for a researcher with experience in mouse genetics, embryology and tumorigenesis to work on a research programme focussed on the role of senescence in paediatric low-grade glioma. The post will be based within the new Birth Defects Research Centre, at the UCL Institute of Child Health.


The post will be focused on the study of senescence in paediatric low-grade glioma, but the successful candidates is expected to develop collaborative work on ongoing lab projects studying the role of cell senescence in other paediatric brain tumours.


The project has three main objectives: (1) to continue previous work on this subject aiming to finalise a manuscript that is currently in preparation; (2) to develop and analyse new preclinical models of pLGG; (3) to perform drug screens to identify senescence inducers and senolytics against these tumours.
