Postdoctoral research fellow position is available now in the van Oosten-Hawle Lab!

Investigating molecular mechanisms of Transcellular Stress Signaling and Aging.

We are seeking an outstanding postdoctoral research fellow to join our interdisciplinary team investigating molecular mechanisms of transcellular stress signaling in aging and neurodegenerative disease. The project uses C. elegans as a model system, tissue-specific next-generation sequencing techniques (ChIP Seq & transcriptomics), and proteomics to study molecular mechanisms underlying transcellular stress signaling between organs during aging. You will have previous expertise in C. elegans biology, molecular biology, and genetics and strong computational skills. You will join an interdisciplinary team of researchers that is part of the Proteostasis Group at UNC Charlotte. 


UNC Charlotte offers a collaborative and highly dynamic research environment, with excellent training opportunities for career development, a complete benefits package, and competitive salaries.



  • Recent Ph.D. in Genetics, Molecular & Cell Biology, Biochemistry, or related discipline.

  • Expertise in C. elegans biology and genetics.

  • Strong computational skills.

  • Expertise in next-generation sequencing techniques.


If you are interested in applying, please contact Dr. van Oosten-Hawle and send your

1) CV including publications, 2) a cover letter outlining what you can contribute to the lab, 3) contact information for three referees to
