The successful applicant will be expected to work collaboratively with other lab Members and collaborators on research projects aiming to understand the role of mitochondria in the stress-disease cascade.

Tasks will involve collecting and processing biological samples (blood and saliva), learning to perform mitochondrial assays, managing data, and using statistical analyses to address scientific hypotheses.
