Research Fellow Position with CDC/NIOSH

Morgantown, WV

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) at CDC is pleased to announce a research fellowship opening in the Receptor Biology Laboratory, located in Morgantown, WV. The research aims at understanding molecular and mechanistic events involved in the development of occupational diseases, with potential emphasis on pulmonary inflammation, fibrosis, and cancer that result from exposure to particulates, nanomaterials, and small chemicals.

QUALIFICATIONS include: (1) A Ph.D. or Master’s degree in molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology, toxicology, pharmacology, or cancer research; (2) Experience conducting in vivo and in vitro studies evaluating molecular and mechanistic changes as a result of exposure; (3) Experience in developing and characterizing rodent models of pathologic phenotypes is desirable; (4) Excellent communication skills and the ability to work effectively and collegially. A strong background in molecular and transgenic approaches relating to disease and pathologic effects, and a good understanding of and experience in biochemistry, immunology, toxicology, and lung disease are highly desirable.

Salary is dependent upon academic degree and experience. NIOSH is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Send a letter with research experience and interests, Curriculum Vitae, and contacts of three referees via email to: Dr. Qiang Ma at qam1@cdc.gov.
