NIH-funded Post-Doc in Cell and Kidney Biology
Description: The Butterworth lab is seeking a motivated research fellow to work on ongoing funded projects that investigate the hormonal regulation of sodium transport in the kidney by microRNAs. The multidisciplinary research uses cell and animal models to understand the role non-coding RNAs play in regulating blood pressure. For additional information please see: www.butterworthlab.com
Responsibilities: The successful candidate will be involved in all aspects of the research, from primary data collection and data analysis to compilation of findings for presentation at scientific meetings and publications. Opportunities will be available for the candidate to develop their own research focus, based on the current work. Postdoctoral professional support and institutional career support are available. It is expected that a motivated candidate will take full ownership of their research to further their career goals.
Qualifications: The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. in physiology, cell biology or related biomedical research fields. Experience working with transgenic mouse models is desirable. Training in electrophysiological techniques will be provided, but previous experience will be advantageous. It is expected that the candidate will be experienced in standard laboratory techniques used in wet bench biomedical research.
