Jobing Description

Who we are:

Calico is a research and development company whose mission is to harness advanced technologies to increase our understanding of the biology that controls lifespan. We will use that knowledge to devise interventions that enable people to lead longer and healthier lives. Executing on this mission will require an unprecedented level of interdisciplinary effort and a long-term focus for which funding is already in place.

Position description:

Calico is recruiting biologists to work as part of a cutting-edge research team focused on studying and experimentally altering age-related physiological dysfunction in preclinical models. We are particularly excited about candidates with experience in gene therapy, vector-based delivery of genetic material in vivo, cell-based therapeutic strategies, and physiological endpoints in preclinical models. Experience with genome-editing technologies and pluripotent cell culture is a plus. The successful candidate will develop gene therapy tools to regulate biological networks in a temporal and tissue-specific manner, and to use those tools to alter age-related physiological dysfunction in a manner relevant to future clinical therapy.

Position requirements:

A Ph.D. in biology, cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, or biochemistry with a completed postdoc or 3+ years of additional, relevant experience, with a strong track record of research productivity as evidenced by high-quality, impactful publications. You need to be an enthusiastic team player, thrive on attention to detail, have excellent verbal/written communication skills, and be excited about studying aging!
