Postdoctoral Fellowship Research Opportunity

The Schafer Lab at Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to participate in NIH-funded brain aging and cellular senescence research.

Candidates should have an interest in exploring the identity of senescent cells and the mechanisms by which they influence brain health and function in the context of aging and disease. Individuals with experience in neuroscience, immunology, or cellular and molecular biology are encouraged to apply.

Established experience in any of the following domains is highly desirable: transgenic mouse model experimentation, imaging and microscopy, cell culture, cytometry, single cell sequencing, high-throughput proteomics, and/or bioinformatics analyses.

Candidates should have a strong work ethic and good oral and written communication skills.

Applicants should submit their CV, a cover letter containing a brief statement of how their expertise can contribute to the research described above, and contact information for three references to:

Applications can also be submitted by searching for “Schafer Lab” at

Staff scientist at IHG in Montpellier (France)

Staff scientist (« ingénieur de recherche ») to start in Jan for 2years on a super cool project on the role of chromatin in innate immunity in senescence and cancer. Fun collaboration with


and (Twitter-less?) Julien Faget. More details below!

You will need to hold a PhD for this position and experience in -omics will be a plus. Necessary qualities are kindness, team spirit and love for science. We encourage applications from people of any background, gender, etc… and diversity is generally valued in the lab.

More about the environment: we are located in sunny Montpellier, in

@IGH_MTP. We love anything nuclear organization-related and work on several cell culture models (senescence, ES cells…). We love microscopy and will love omics soon thanks to YOU! DM or email to learn more!


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.
