Postdoctoral Researcher in Cellular and Molecular Biology
Postdoctoral Researcher positions in Cellular and Molecular Biology
A postdoctoral position is available to work with Dr. Nagarjun Konduru in the department of cellular and molecular biology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler. Dr. Konduru’s research focuses on lung responses to inhaled particulates and microbes. His studies extend from the deposition of inhaled particles in the respiratory tract to their clearance by respiratory defense mechanisms. Of particular interest is the role of lung macrophages in regulating inflammatory and immune responses. The context of these studies is the prevention and pathogenesis of environmental lung disease.
Postdoc will join our efforts in understanding the role of exosomes in molecular pathogenesis of lung diseases. The qualified candidate must have a PhD or MD degree and a strong background in molecular and cell biology. Additional experience in bioinformatics is plus, and anyone willing to learn and apply new methods to address challenging problems is welcome. The laboratory provides an interdisciplinary and collaborative environment in all aspects of lung research. The candidate will be working with rat/mouse models and will also have access to modern LSRFortessa and state of art core facility that has FACSARIA and high-resolution microscopy.
An excellent communication and interpersonal skills are desirable.
Please send your cover letter, CV and three letters of recommendation to Dr. Nagarjun Konduru at Nagarjun.KonduruVenkata@uthct.edu. Review of applications will continue until the positions are filled.
