- Established experience in two or more of the following is highly desirable: (a) advanced techniques in biochemistry, cellular, and molecular biology relevant to fibrosis research; (b) genomic or epigenomic approaches; (c) experimental modeling and analysis of fibrosis in mice; (d) primary isolation, culture and/or analysis of lung-derived epithelial and mesenchymal cell populations; and (e) cell/tissue imaging techniques such as fluorescence, confocal, multiphoton and atomic force microscopy.
- The candidate will be expected to develop and execute independent research plans leading to peer-reviewed publications.
- Comfortable working within an interdisciplinary group of research personnel, and possess excellent oral and written communication skills.
- Although the candidate's salary (NIH scale) will be fully supported by intramural as well as extramural (NIH) funding, he/she will be expected to initiate progress towards independence via submission of research grant proposals.
