The Higgins-Chen Lab at Yale University invites applications for up to 2 postdoctoral associate positions in the biology of aging, supported by multiple NIH grants. The lab is focused on using machine learning approaches to identify omics-based biomarkers to estimate the biological age of individuals, then adapt the biomarkers for use in clinical trials of geroscience-based interventions to prevent or treat age-related diseases. The lab also studies the interaction between aging and mental health. Lab members primarily perform computational analysis, collaborating with clinicians, experimental biologists, epidemiologists, social scientists, and industry to train and validate biomarkers.

Postdoctoral associates may work on one or more projects and are encouraged to incorporate their other research interests into the work. They may work collaboratively with one or more current lab members for these projects. Projects we are currently hiring for include:Molecular signatures of Alzheimer’s resilience: Work with a unique multi-omics multi-region brain dataset for Alzheimer’s disease, highly enriched in individuals with ApoE E4 alleles yet are resilient to cognitive decline. All somatic mutation, DNA methylation, and proteomics data from 3 brain regions are already collected, along with detailed phenotypic data. A postdoctoral associate would work to identify molecular signatures of resilience using individual data types and perform multi-omic integration.
Epigenetic clocks to link aging hallmarks, interventions, and outcomes: Epigenetic clocks based on DNA methylation are commonly used aging biomarkers in epidemiological studies. However, there is little mechanistic understanding of how they relate to molecular hallmarks of aging, risk for age-related disease, and response to aging interventions, limiting their potential use in clinical trials. With collaborators, we are collecting data from humans, human cell culture, and mouse models concerning DNA methylation relationships with aging hallmarks, interventions, and outcomes. A postdoctoral associate would work to integrate this data and test new computational approaches to develop mechanistically informed epigenetic aging clocks.

Computational solutions for adapting aging biomarkers to longitudinal studies and clinical trials: Aging biomarkers are needed to longitudinally monitor an individual’s aging process and their response to interventions. However, current aging biomarkers are mostly trained and validated using cross-sectional measurements, and they also can be affected by a variety of confounders that make it unclear whether changes in biomarkers can be truly attributed to a modification of aging. A postdoctoral associate would work with longitudinal biomarker data from large aging cohorts and other datasets to develop computational methods for utilizing longitudinal data in training and validation of aging biomarkers, and methods for detecting and correcting for confounders.

Another major focus of the lab is investigating how mental health influences the aging process and identifying ways to improve the long-term health of individuals with psychiatric disorders. Postdoctoral associates are welcome to contribute to these projects.

Qualifications:Excellent collaboration skills and ability to contribute to a positive, supportive, and collegial lab environment
A PhD, MD, or MD/PhD and experience in geroscience, cellular and molecular biology, computational biology, bioinformatics, or a related field.
Strong computational skills, including experience with programming languages such as R or Python, and supervised and unsupervised machine learning methods
Motivated and self-directed to complete research projects and learn new skills needed for that research

Preferred Qualifications:Experience and domain knowledge relevant to one or more projects listed above (Alzheimer’s Disease, mouse or cell culture aging studies, epidemiology of aging, etc)
Expertise in computational methods relevant to one or more projects listed above (proteomics analysis, multi-omics data integration, advanced longitudinal modeling, etc.)

Application Process:

Appointments are initially for 1-2 years, are renewable, and have flexible start dates. The positions are available immediately and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Qualified applicants may be contacted to schedule an interview.
Interested candidates should submit the following application materials:A 1-page cover letter describing your research interests, career goals, and how your expertise may contribute to one of the above projects (please focus your letter on one project – we may discuss other projects during the interview).
A detailed CV or Biosketch
Contact information for three professional references who can provide letters of recommendation or discussions by phone upon request.

7. Postdoctoral Position Agent-Based Model Development for Environmental and Archaeological Applications

Posting Date: 5/18/23

The Yale Paleoarchaeology Laboratory seeks to fill a one-year postdoctoral position for a project entitled “Modelling the Evolution and Future of the Zambezian Biome”. The aim of the project is to develop and deploy agent-based (or generative) models to understand human-environment interactions in the Zambezian Biome of southern-central Africa over the last ~30,000 years. The position is funded through a Yale Bioscience Postdoctoral Fellowship, and will begin on 1 September 2023.

The time period under study spans the global climatic transition from the Last Glacial Maximum into the Holocene ca. 11,500 years ago, as well as the regional economic transition of humans from hunter-gatherers to food producers ca. 2,000-3,000 years ago. The goal is to understand the changing resource landscape for ancient humans across those transitions, as well as potentially the iterative environmental impacts of those same humans on available resources. Ultimately, these models will provide testable hypotheses for interpreting the archaeological and paleoenvironmental records relevant to reconstructing ancient human social organization. They will also inform development of strategies for mitigating paired human-climate impacts on environments in the region, by identifying where and under what conditions ecosystem tipping points may be anticipated.

One year of this two-year project has already been completed. Therefore, the incoming candidate will build on existing data and code structure, but the position will not be renewable for a second year. The successful candidate will publish results from this project collaboratively with the PI (Dr. Jessica Thompson), the initial model developer Dr. Benjamin Davies (Tufts University), and other contributors. They are also encouraged to use this opportunity to advance their own independent scholarly profile and will receive mentorship on research, job searches, and other related academic professional development.

The appointment will be as a Postdoctoral Associate. Compensation and benefits are outlined at the Office for Postdoctoral Affairs. The candidate must be physically present in New Haven and will receive office space in the Department of Anthropology. In addition to resources through the Yale library system, the candidate will have access to any necessary resources for the project through the Yale Center for Research Computing: https://docs.ycrc.yale.edu/.

The laboratory of Daniel DiMaio, M.D., Ph.D., in the Department of Genetics is seeking a postdoctoral researcher in molecular virology. We study tumor viruses to determine the mechanistic basis of fundamental biological processes and to develop new strategies to inhibit tumor virus infection and the cancers they cause.Because viruses are dependent on cellular machinery for all phases of their life cycle, they historically have been valuable tools to study many aspects of biology. Our lab focuses on human papillomaviruses (HPV), which cause approximately 5% of all human cancer. Our prior studies revealed a novel mechanism of growth factor receptor activation by a viral oncoprotein, provided the first example of oncogene addiction, designed artificial proteins with unprecedented chemical simplicity, described the first clear biological role of cell-penetrating peptides, and discovered that some proteins can act in a manner independent of their amino acid sequence. 

Our main current focus is the complex process by which HPV enters cells, which we study to discover new principles of cell biology and biochemistry. These studies many also lead to new approaches to inhibit virus infection and cancer formation. Our laboratory seeks to hire a highly motivated postdoctoral associate with expertise in virology, molecular and cellular biology, and/or biochemistry. Potential projects include structure-function analysis of HPV proteins involved in virus entry, development of a novel system to propagate infectious HPV pseudoviruses, and mechanistic studies of cellular proteins that are required for virus entry. Major experimental approaches include cell culture, virus propagation and infection, mutant construction and analysis, protein expression and purification, and imaging techniques in cultured cells.

Representative publications:

Heim, E., Marston, J., Federman, R., Edwards, A. B., E., Karabadzhak, A., Petti, L.M., Engelman, D.M., and DiMaio, D. (2015) Biologically active LIL proteins built with minimal chemical diversity. Proc. Natl Acad. Sci. USA, doi:10.1073/pnas.1514230112.

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Salil Garg (https://medicine.yale.edu/profile/salil_garg/), Assistant Professor in the Yale School of Medicine. The Garg laboratory (http://www.garglab.org) is new to Yale and actively recruiting for multiple positions. The lab uses approaches from genomics, molecular biology, cell biology, bioinformatics, and systems biology to understand non-genetic heterogeneity in development and cancer. We want to understand how cell systems with the same genetic material break symmetry and generate cells with markedly different behaviors from one another. Our hypothesis is that the processes that drive this behavior in normal mammalian development operate in cancer, driving tumor heterogeneity. The lab’s most recent publications appear in Molecular Cell and Cancer Discovery, and mentees have gone on to success in both academic and industry careers.

Qualified applicants will have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent credential in a relevant discipline. The lab employs both experimental and computational approaches; applicants should have familiarity with at least one of these areas and a willingness to learn the other. Our philosophy is that each trainee should chase scientific questions using the best methodology available. Candidates should be curious, hard-working, strong communicators, and above all interested in answering challenging questions. Visa sponsorship is available.

Projects are flexible and can be crafted to the interest of the applicant, and may relate to 1) identification of molecular mechanisms driving heterogeneity in developmental or cancer contexts; 2) understanding of cellular states and non-genetic memory in cell systems; 3) construction of new diagnostic tools using connections between developmental biology and cancer.

Application process: Interested applicants should contact Dr. Salil Garg (salil.garg@yale.edu) using subject line “Postdoctoral position in the Garg lab” and include: a cover letter addressing their research background, interests, and goals; a copy of their curriculum vitae; and names of 3 references including research supervisors. Yale University is an equal opportunity employer and values diversity in its faculty, students, and staff.
