THE ROLE OF Diet-Induced Macrophage Reprogramming IN VASCULaR Diseases and Obesity

The Asmis Lab at Wake Forest School of Medicine is inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in the Department of Internal Medicine. The NIH-funded projects will study the roles of monoamine oxidase A and NADPH oxidases in redox signaling dysregulation and macrophage reprogramming associated with metabolic diseases and the development of atherosclerosis and obesity (Kim, H.S. et al. Scientific Reports. 6, 34223 (2016); Short, J.D. et al. Frontiers in Immunology 22; 958 (2017); Ahn, Y.J. et al. J.Nutri.Biochem. 86, 108483 (2020), Ahn et al. Nat. Commun. 13; 790 (2022)

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, a strong record of scientific publications and good oral and written communication skills. Experience in the isolation and culture of human and murine monocytes and macrophages, a background in transgenic mouse models and mouse surgeries, expertise in redox biology and strong skills in molecular biology and immunohistochemistry are preferred. Additional experience in murine atherosclerosis models, single-cell Western blotting techniques 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
