This job is no longer available
POSTDOCTRAL RESEARCH POSITIONS are available in the Department of Physiology School of Medicine at Tulane University Health Sciences Center to study the physiological genomics, molecular signaling, and functional analysis of guanylyl cyclase/natriuretic peptide receptors using in vivo or in vitro models.
There are three main areas of research projects. The first project involves the characterization of genes in renal and cardiac hypertrophy/fibrosis using gene-targeted mouse models. The second focus is the transcriptional regulation by promoter analysis, EMSA, and CHIP using both in vitro and in vivo systems. The third focus is analyzing receptor dynamics, protein phosphorylation, and molecular signaling using confocal and fluorescence microscopy in model cell systems.
A strong background in biochemistry, molecular biology, and/or animal physiology is required. Individuals who are experienced using animal models, and in vivo or in vitro techniques are preferred. Successful applicants are expected to be motivated and have a vision for developing independent research projects.Send a resume and a list of three references to K.N. Pandey (firstname.lastname@example.org), Tulane University Health Sciences Center, 1430 Tulane Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70112.
