Postdoctoral Researcher

in Cellular and Molecular Biology

 

Post-doctoral fellowship available in the Department of Cellular and Molecular Biology at the University of Texas health Science Center at Tyler (UTHCT). Our institution is rapidly growing, and substantive resources have been allocated to build its basic and translational research portfolio. The Department has recently set up a state of-the-art imaging system including Leica SP8 Laser Confocal Microscope, OMX Super-Resolution Microscope, and Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscope combined with Yokogawa Spinning Disc Confocal Unit and Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscope for single molecule tracking capability with FIONA analysis.

The research of one applicant should be in the areas of cardiovascular and metabolic medicines. Candidates with hands-on experience in cardiovascular diseases (aneurysm, atherosclerosis, hypertension, and vascular development) and/or metabolic diseases (obesity, type 2 diabetes and its complications including hepatic steatosis and gastrointestinal metabolic homeostasis) are welcome to apply. The postdoc will lead and substantiate such translational research efforts to gain new mechanistic insight in such diseases using different genetic engineered animal models.

A second applicant should have strong background and training in one of the areas including cancer biology, immunology, and/or lung fibrosis. The postdoctoral fellow will explore role of immune and inflammatory regulators in the development and progression of human diseases including cancer, fibrosis, and cardiovascular disease. State-of-the art technologies in cancer cell biology, imaging, and genetic modified animal models will be used to conduct high-impact research with strong translational relevance.      

Projects will be collaborative and multi-disciplinary. The position is available immediately. Applicants should submit their CV, cover letter, and names, including phone numbers, of three (3) references to Dr. Xia Guo, Department of Cellular and Molecular Biology, University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler, 11937 US Highway 271, Tyler, TX 75708, E-mail: xia.guo@uthct.edu or Dr. Guoqing Qian at guoqing.qian@uthct.edu.
