McNair Program Coordinator – Calling Graduates!!

Dear UCSD Graduate Students,

The staff at UCSD’s Summer Research Program (SRP) is looking for 4 or 5 graduate students in a range of disciplines to serve as panelists at our event on Thursday, July 12th (5:30 – 6:30 pm, QI Auditorium at Atkinson Hall).  The panelists will discuss the graduate school application process, their decision about where to enroll, and their experiences as graduate students.   The audience will be undergraduate students in our Summer Research Program.  If you are interested in participating as a panelist, please contact me, Thomas K. Brown, at by Friday, July 6th.

Thirty of the students in our SRP are in the McNair Scholars Program, which is the program that I coordinate.  The McNair Program is for first-generation college students and students from under-represented ethnic groups, it is comprised of students from a wide variety of academic disciplines.  Our mission is to prepare students for applying to and gaining admission to top PhD programs, and to encourage these students to pursue careers in research.   Other participants in our SRP are in programs that are specifically for students in the sciences and/or engineering disciplines.  Each of the participants in our SRP is taking part in a full-time research program for 6 to 12 weeks.

The graduate student panel will take place on Thursday, July 12th from 5:30 to 6:30 pm at the QI Auditorium in Atkinson Hall.  If you would like to participate, please send me an email at .  If you have any questions, feel free to email me or to call me at 858-5354-2937.

Kind Regards,

Thomas K. Brown, PhD

Job Opportunity- Scientific Coordinator- Max Planck Institute for Biology of Aging in Cologne, Germany

The Department for Molecular Genetics of Ageing headed by director Prof. Dr. Adam Antebi is looking for a full time

 Scientific Coordinator 

The Antebi Department for “Molecular Genetics of Ageing” investigates how diet, reproduction, and hormones impact animal life span, mostly using the worm Caenorhabditis elegans and killifish Notobranchius furzeri as model organisms, but also using cell culture and mouse. The overarching goals are to reveal evolutionarily conserved, convergent mechanisms of longevity, and to understand how hormones and small molecule metabolites affect metabolism, signal transduction and ageing. We apply a multidisciplinary approach combining, genetics, systems biology, cell and molecular biology, imaging, biochemistry and mass spectrometry in order to understand the biology of ageing and age-related disease.

We seek a highly motivated,  talented person with a strong scientific background to work closely with the department head and join an enthusiastic and collaborative team in an outstanding scientific environment. The applicant should have an interest in research, administration, and excellent written and oral communication skills. The working language is bilingual German / English and a fluent knowledge of both the German and English language (oral and written) is required.

Your tasks include

  • assist in mentoring scientific projects
  • general scientific administrative duties
  • correspondence and documentation in German and English
  • support with research reports
  • support of applications for research grants, animal experimentation,
  • administration of the approved grants, protocols etc.

          Your qualifications should include

  • successfully completed studies in the life sciences with a Ph.D. degree and post-doctoral experience
  • knowledge of mouse work and cell culture
  • experience in supervising and mentoring of students
  • high measure of responsibility, organizational talent, motivation and team spirit
  • very good knowledge of both German and English
  • experience in science administration is a plus but not mandatory

Research Environment

The Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing (MPI-AGE), Cologne, was founded in 2008 with the aim to understand fundamental mechanisms of healthy ageing in various model systems. The institute is part of a broad network of research institutions in the Cologne-Bonn area dedicated to research on ageing and age-related disease, constituting a vibrant and collaborative environment with state of the art facilities for research. Currently we host >270 employees from >30 different nations.

The employment contract will be based on contracts for the civil service (TVöD-Bund, Tarifvertrag für den öffentlichen Dienst) and will initially be time limited to two years. The Max Planck Society is committed to employ more disabled individuals and especially encourages them to apply. We also seek to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and particularly encourage them to apply.

Are you interested?

Then please upload your complete application documents, containing a one-page letter with a personal statement describing your scientific accomplishments and your interests in the position, your CV and bibliography as well as, contact information for 3 references, in electronic form as one single pdf-file via our online application platform until January 18th 2018:
