Collins Lab- Cell and Developmental Biology of Parasites
The Collins Lab in the Department of Pharmacology at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas has multiple fully-funded postdoctoral positions to study the basic cell and developmental biology of schistosome parasites. These fascinating organisms infect hundreds of millions of people in the developing world and our group is studying aspects of their basic developmental and cell biology to uncover new therapies. These organisms present remarkable opportunity to ask basic biological questions and leverage insights from these studies to address a disease that devastates the most vulnerable among us. The work and associated training opportunities run the gamut from stem cell and germ cell biology to small molecule screening and drug development. For more information visit CollinsLab.org.
Interested applicant's with a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences (or related field) should send a cover letter, their CV, and the names of three references to: JamesJ.Collins@UTSouthwestern.edu.
