Role of Astrocytes in Mitochondrial Disease PathophysiologyPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2020-May-20
A postdoctoral position is available in the Metabolism, Infection and Immunity Section (MINI Section), NHGRI/NIH, Bethesda Campus, Bethesda, MD. The laboratory takes a translational approach and is dedicated to understanding the role of the inflammation and immunity in mitochondrial diseases. The project for this position is focused on defining the role of astrocytes in mitochondrial disease pathophysiology. The successful candidate will employ innovative approaches to answer important questions in mitochondrial medicine: patient studies, iPS cells, animal models, genomics, metabolomics, stable isotope flux, in vivo metabolic imaging, enzyme assays, immunohistochemistry, and bioenergetics studies. We are seeking a highly motivated, creative and collaborative individual with a publication record, who is able to engage in independent reasoning and excited about integrating omic technologies to understand mechanisms of pathophysiology to identify therapeutic targets.Qualifications:
Ideal candidates must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. and < 5 years of postdoctoral training. Preference will be given to candidates who have experience in mouse models, astrocyte biology, immunology, metabolism, and cell and molecular biology. Prior experience with metabolomics, extracellular flux analysis of bioenergetic function (Seahorse Biosciences) or high resolution respirometry (Oroboros) is a plus. The candidate should have excellent writing and communication skills.To Apply:
