Join Us!

We are committed to training the next generation of scientists, and always looking for highly motivated scientists to join our team!

Postdoctoral Fellows

We are always recruiting highly motivated postdoctoral fellows to study ‘omic’ regulation of aging across vertebrate models. Postdocs will be expected to develop a project together with the PI, and independently work to carry it out.
Candidates should have, or will soon receive, a Ph.D. in genetics, molecular/cellular biology, computational biology, genetics, immunology, or any other relevant subject area.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, a resume and arrange to have 3 recommendation letters sent to Dr. Benayoun.

Graduate Students

The Benayoun Lab is committed to training graduate-level students wishing to pursue long-term careers in science. We are accepting highly motivated students to join us in studying the ‘omics’ of vertebrate aging and intervention-induced longevity.

For students pursuing a PhD degree, the Benayoun lab is affiliated to the Biology of Aging PhD Program, the Neuroscience Graduate PhD Program and the Molecular and Computational Biology PhD Program at USC.

For students pursuing a Master’s degree, the Benayoun lab can host students from various programs, including the Master of Science in Gerontology Program (MSG), the Master of Science in Nutrition, Healthspan and Longevity Program (MSNHL), and Master of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine (BMM) at USC.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and a resume to Dr. Benayoun.

Undergraduate Students

The Benayoun Lab is committed to training undergraduate students wishing to pursue long-term careers in science. We are accepting highly motivated students to join us in studying the molecular regulation of vertebrate aging. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter and a resume. We recommend freshmen or sophomores to apply, with a biology or computer science-related major, for maximum research experience.

Expect to spend a minimum of 10-15 hours/week in the lab for an optimal research training experience.

Due to space and resource constraints, we cannot consider the applications of students who cannot commit at least that much time to the lab.

Interested applicants should contact Dr. Benayoun at ‚Äčbbenayou@usc.edu
