A postdoctoral fellow is being recruited for an exciting research project that uses a highly innovative experimental approach that directs the differentiation of primary intestinal stem cells, in different mouse tight junction genetic models, to specific mature cell types, to gain an understanding of how differentiation into absorptive and secretory progenies alters the expression and location of tight junction proteins, resulting in significant, cell-type dependent variation in paracellular permeability. Individuals eligible to be employed as a postdoctoral researcher should have completed their PhD studies within the last four years.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in biochemistry, biophysics, cell metabolism/physiology or related disciplines. Candidates with some background in transport physiology are preferred.
An initial application must contain the following documents in English:
A complete curriculum vitae, including date (or scheduled date) of the thesis defence, title of the thesis, current position, academic distinctions, list of publications and list of five references with email addresses.
The fellow will be employed at the Department of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience, New Jersey Medical School, Rutgers University. The NSF-funded fellowship is for three years, subject to annual renewals depending on performance and productivity. The successful applicant will have an excellent opportunity to collaborate and learn from NIH-funded studies on responses to the gut nutrients and microbiota in the Ferraris laboratory (https://njms-web.njms.rutgers.edu/profile/myProfile.php?mbmid=ferraris) and stem cell biology in the Gao laboratory (http://runewarkbiology.rutgers.edu/Gao%20Lab/index.html).
