SRF Research Center Immunologist Application Form


SENS Research Foundation (SRF) is seeking a full-time researcher for a Scientist position to work at our Research Center located in Mountain View, California. The position is to lead a new intramural research project geared toward performing translational research studying aging as it relates to the immune system, with a possibility of developing a new therapeutic. This is a collaborative effort between SRF and the Campisi Lab at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging, located in Novato, CA. The collaboration allows the researcher to work with two institutions at the forefront of the anti-aging field, and allow for mentorship from experts in the field. The successful applicant will work with, and be guided by, senior researchers at both SRF and the Buck, and as such this position is available to new PhDs as an alternative to doing a Postdoc (or a 2nd postdoc). The position offers the opportunity for upward mobility into a more senior, PI level position. Leading a team at SRF is an exciting career opportunity in a team environment where everyone is dedicated to discovering new treatments for the diseases and disabilities of aging.
