One postdoctoral fellow is sought for a cell signaling laboratory
The suitable candidate will perform studies aimed at identifying and investigating signaling proteins involved in regulating bone resorption by osteoclasts. Specifically, our lab uses both ex vivo and in vitro approaches to study the mechanism of action of several tyrosine kinases and GTP-binding proteins on the ability of osteoclasts to adhere, migrate and degrade bone. Opportunities for multiple collaborations within the School/University also exist.
Candidates must have a strong signaling, cell biology and molecular biology experience, including experience with the primary cells. Prior experience or a willingness to work with rodents is a must. Experience in histological analysis of bone and microscopic analysis of fixed and live cells is also highly desirable. Applicants with a recent Ph.D or M.D are encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, statement of research interest and three letters of recommendation electronically to Dr. A. Bruzzaniti, Indiana University School of Dentistry, Indianapolis, IN.
Review of applicants will begin June 1st and will continue until the position is filled. Indiana University is an EEO/AA employer.
