Senior faculty member in the Department of Medicine/Gastroenterology is seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral fellow who is interested in investigating the role of epigenetic pathways in regulating pain pathways. Work will involve animal models and cultured cells, both neurons and epithelial cells. Research efforts include performing small animal surgery, developing molecular probes, and conducting imaging studies with novel optical imaging instruments. Experience with cell culture and molecular methods are required. Working familiarity with site-specific screening of DNA methylation and ChIP analysis or bioinformatics is highly desirable. Goal of research is to study the role of epigenetic pathways in regulating pain perception in a variety of conditions. Effective communication and writing skills are mandatory and evidence of previous research productivity highly desirable. Wet lab space is available on 9th floor of MSRB3.
Salary is commensurate with training and experience.
