Post Doc position in Airway Smooth Muscle dynamics / Ag sensitization

The Airway Biology group at Duke is pretty active, spread out across multiple departments at the med ctr, and a variety of focus areas
Department Name: Pediatrics

Position: Post Doc position in Airway Smooth Muscle Lab

Description: Our lab focuses on the mechanism of airway smooth muscle hyperresponsiveness in early life and the role of airway smooth muscle in childhood asthma. The position we are requesting through the NIH Administrative Supplement is designed to study antigen sensitization in cultured human airway smooth muscle cells and the long term effects of neonatal antigen sensitization in small animals, i.e. mice and guinea pigs. We are interested in a Post Doc with a background either in cell biology with experience of cell culture or in pharmacology with experience in electrophoresis/western blots and quantitative PCR. Because of the multi-factorial nature of our project a background in immunology, biochemistry or molecular biology may be suitable. Experience working with animal models is a plus.

Requirements:   PhD. degree and experience in cell biology, physiology, or Pharmacology

Deadline to Apply: 8/01/09 or until position is filled
