Job Description

Uniquely positioned to enhance quality of life in aging, we are pioneering science that is rapidly being translated to the clinic. Our approaches utilize molecular, proteomic and behavioral techniques to identify therapeutics and apply them to patients. We are seeking a highly motivated and driven research associate / associate scientist who will be key in advancing our preclinical scientific activities in the area of identifying and characterizing proteins associated with aging and disease. The role will utilize state-of-the-art proteomic technologies including mass spectrometry, multiplexed immunoassays, and protein separation technologies to analyze clinical samples. This position will be involved in establishing, validating and implementing relevant assays to follow up key proteins of interest and to enable therapeutic prioritization. The studies performed will involve cutting edge science and require innovative concepts and strategies. The role requires dedication to drive science, flexibility, excellent communication and organization, and efficient interaction with a team of scientists and research associates to advance multiple projects in parallel. Responsibilities and compensation are commensurate with education and experience. We offer a competitive compensation package.


Specific responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
Designing, planning, performing and analyzing proteomic studies using mass spectrometry, immunoassays, protein separation techniques and other cutting edge technologies.
Working with and characterizing clinical samples.
Maintaining familiarity with current scientific literature.
Investigating and developing new methods and technologies for project advancement.
Carrying out independent projects with supervision.
Interfacing on a regular basis with lead scientific staff to organize, coordinate, schedule and execute experimental work. This may include designing, performing, and presenting experimental paradigms.
