The Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine is recruiting for two faculty researchers who are highly motivated scientists and are interested in basic and translational research. The research focus of these positions is on studies of pulmonary vascular signaling and endothelial cell biology with translational focus on biomedical problems such as acute lung injury, trauma, and sepsis.
The primary activity for the positions is academic research in association with a faculty member or a research team. Qualified applicants must have a doctoral degree and at least three years of post-doctoral experience including, but not limited to, areas of cell physiology, live cell imaging, mechanotranaduction, and signal transduction in living cells and tissues. Alternative projects available for the positions may involve translational studies in animal models of lung injury, trauma and sepsis, and require technical skills in animal surgery and analysis of injury parameters in vivo. These positions provide an opportunity to lead a project independently and supervise trainees, and requires proper skills in manuscript writing and participation in grant preparation.
Please reference position # 03-306-299/300 in your cover letter. Interested candidates should submit cover letter and CV to Candy DiCarlo c/o email@example.com.
Preferred candidates should have extensive expertise in the area of signal transduction, characterization of protein-protein interactions in mammalian cells, cytoskeleton and cell adhesion regulation, and excellent manuscript writing skills. Experience in endothelial cell biology, transient transfections, functional cell-based assays (such as permeability, adhesion, migration, tube formation), immunofluorescence, protein biochemistry (such as immunoprecipitation, pull-down, fractionation, biotinylation assays) is essential. Experience in advanced imaging techniques, protein purification, flow cytometry, qRT-PCR, cloning, and viral transfections will be useful. The past experience with assisting in training of post-doctoral fellows is a plus.
