THIOL REDOX SIGNALING IN MACROPHAGES: THE ROLE OF MACROPHAGE DYSFUNCTION IN VASCULAR DISEASES AND OBESITY

The Asmis Lab at Wake Forest School of Medicine is inviting applications for two Postdoctoral Research Fellow positions in the Department of Internal Medicine. The projects will study the roles of glutaredoxins and NADPH oxidases in macrophage signaling, epigenetic modifications and cell (dys)function associated with metabolic diseases and the development of atherosclerosis and obesity. (Kim, H.S. et al. Scientific Reports. 6, 34223 (2016); Tavakoli, S. et al. Arterioscler.Thromb.Vasc.Biol. (2017) online; Short, J.D. et al. Frontiers in Immunology (2017) online).

The ideal candidates would be highly motivated, learn quickly, and have a good degree of independence. Individuals should have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, cell biology or physiology and a record of scientific publications, good oral and written communication skills. Previous experiences with primary cell culture techniques, mouse models and surgeries, and strong skills in molecular biology and immunohistochemistry are preferred. Additional experience in redox proteomics and epigenetics will be helpful but is not required.

Candidates who are interested in working in an interdisciplinary and collaborative environment are encouraged to submit their curriculum vitae, a 1-page statement describing their research interests, relevant background, and career goals, and their contact information well as three letters of references to rasmis@wakehealth.edu.
