Postdoctoral Position Available in Wound Healing/Fibrosis Research

A postdoctoral position is available in a NIH funded laboratory with interest in molecular genetics and functional analysis of 1) rare bone disorders, 2) keloid formation and other fibrotic disorders.

Candidates must have Ph.D., M.D./Ph.D., or M.D. and must be highly motivated.

The successful applicant will have strong background in wound healing, fibrosis or inflammatory disorders with technical expertise in immunology, cell biology or signal transduction.

Our newly renovated laboratory is embedded in the Center for Regenerative Medicine and Skeletal Development at UConn Health within a vibrant research environment. We study the roles and molecular mechanisms of candidate genes for keloid formation and rare bone disorders. As we identify mutations in candidate genes we investigate the effects of candidate variants on a cellular and molecular level by in vitro and in vivo models.

Candidates must be innovative, enthusiastic and have solid background in at least one of the identified areas (wound healing, fibrosis, inflammatory disorders, immunology, cell biology or signal transduction) and must be capable of engaging into other areas of expertise as required by the project. The dynamics of this research project requires the ability for multitasking, to work independently as well as collaboratively with other lab members and external collaborators. A broad biological and technical background will be of advantage.
