Post Doctoral Scientist - RI Peri Britt
The lab is seeking a highly motivated and well-trained postdoctoral scientist who is looking to expand their skill set and expertise while performing basic and translational research in the area of lung physiology and immunology. With an interdisciplinary and highly collaborative environment, our research is centered on understanding the pathophysiology of airway diseases including asthma and COPD. Notable areas of focus include airway smooth muscle physiology corticosteroid resistance, and aging. Studies will be conducted using primary human cell cultures and mouse models of lung disease. In addition to standard molecular and biochemical techniques, technical expertise in one or more advanced techniques in cellular and molecular biology, such as proteomics (Mass spectrometry), next generation sequencing (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq), flow cytometry (cell sorting), or fluorescence and confocal microscopy (live cell/tissue imaging) is desirable. The successful candidate is expected to perform experiments, work independently, publish in peer-reviewed scientific journals, and apply for extramural funding. Additionally, the candidate will be expected to develop his/her own research and career interests. Prior experience in lung-related fields is not required, as all qualified applicants are encouraged to apply. The position will be supported by intramural and extramural funds of the Principle Investigator. The Postdoctoral Scientist appointment has a maximum of 5 years in length.
