We are hiring!

We are looking to hire a postdoctoral fellow with expertise in transposon biology. The NIH-funded project focuses on the role of transposable elements in Alzheimer's disease, related tauopathies, and physiological brain aging. We work with Drosophila, iPSC-derived neurons, organoids, mouse brain tissue, human fluids and post-mortem human brain tissue. Our focus ranges from basic science and bioinformatics to clinical trials.

We are affiliated with the Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies, the Glenn Biggs Institute for Alzheimer's and Neurodegenerative Disorders, and the Department of Cell Systems and Anatomy at the University of Texas Health San Antonio. We are in the midst of moving into a brand-new research building that will house investigators focused on aging biology. The building also houses the Barshop's Nathan Shock Center of Excellence, Claude D. Pepper Older Americans Independence Center, Interventions Testing Program, and a Molecular Transducers of Physical Activity Consortium site.

Since opening in 2015, the Frost laboratory has published in Nature Neuroscience, Aging Cell, Cell Reports, Current Opinion in Neurobiology, and Trends in Pharmacological Sciences (see publications tab). Trainees have received funding in the form of an NIA T32, NINDS NRSA F31, NIGMS K12 IRACDA, NIGMS R25, and the BrightFocus Foundation. Past trainees have secured positions in both biotech and academia. Dr. Frost was the 2019 recipient of the O'Donnell Award in Medicine from the The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas (TAMEST). 

Please send your CV and a cover letter outlining the reasons why you are interested in joining us to bfrost@uthscsa.edu.
