Scientist I. Developing aging intervention therapies – in vitro and in vivo testing

BioAge is looking for a talented bench biologist to join our team. We’re an early-stage startup developing novel bioinformatics approaches that harness large amounts of data to identify new therapies that impact human aging. We're backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Felicis Vetnrues, AME Cloud Ventures, and other great investors focused at the interface of science and computation, and our work was recently covered in Wired and GenomeWeb.

We are looking for a highly productive PhD bench scientist to support the activities of the research and development team. Candidates must have an interest in aging research with a strong publication record. You will get an opportunity to create clinical candidates for an emerging and exciting biology and to translate that into a pipeline of differentiated medicines.
