The Chang Lab at Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine is seeking a motivated postdoctoral fellow funded by the NIH.
The postdoctoral fellow will conduct research in neuron-immune axis of host-pathogen interactions. The fellow is required to have technical and theoretical knowledge related to genetics, molecular biology and cell biology. Hands-on experience with common techniques in molecular biology and fluorescence microscopy is preferred.
Specific tasks will include: design and perform experiments, collection and analysis of data, preparation of reports for peer-reviewed scientific publications, conference presentations, and grant progress reports. The fellow will have opportunities to mentor technicians and graduate students.
SUGGESTED EDUCATION AND/OR EXPERIENCE:
· Ph.D. degree (less than 5 years) with major/concentration in molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, neurobiology or related field of study.
· Prior research experience in the areas of model organism system, genetics, neurobiology, and/or host-pathogen interactions.
· Previous experience in C. elegans genetics and/or neurobiology will be given first consideration.
