Postdoctoral position (full-time) is available for enthusiastic and motivated scientists wishing to study the molecular and genetic mechanisms underlying the aging process as it pertains to age-related impaired wound healing, tissue repair and regeneration. Using a combination of genetic, molecular and biochemical approaches to study aging in mouse models and human tissues, the Roh lab's goal is to develop novel therapies for age-related deficiencies in wound healing and tissue repair. Opportunities for translational research will be available as the lab is run by a surgeon-scientist with an active surgical practice including aged and wound patients.
Candidates should be highly motivated and have relevant training in cell and molecular biology and biochemical techniques (including cell culture, histology, Western blots, PCR, image analysis) and animal work. Candidates with a Ph.D. and a strong research history as indicated by their publication record are encouraged to apply. Candidates with additional hands-on experience in working with mouse models, animal surgery, skin biology, wound healing, senescence, and aging research backgrounds are given preference.
Please email a letter of interest including your research history, CV and future research interests to the email below. Applicants should outline specifically why they are excited by our research program and what they feel they can contribute. Please note that although funding support is not a prerequisite, all postdocs will be encouraged to apply for individual research fellowships and grants.
Select candidates will be asked to arrange for additional letters of references to be submitted independently.
