Postdoctoral Fellow, Connective Tissue Diseases

Job Description

Apply Now

Join us in the Connective Tissue Diseases Therapeutic Focus Area for an exciting postdoctoral position! We're searching for a highly qualified, innovative, and collaborative researcher with a curiosity for "outside of the box" thinking.

Your mission will be to unravel the physiological roles of the type 1 Bone Morphogenetic Protein receptor ACVR1 and explore its signaling mechanisms.

ACVR1 sets itself apart by forming two distinct complexes: a potent signaling complex with BMPs and a non-signaling complex with Activins. Our preliminary findings indicate that these complexes play distinct physiological roles. To delve deeper, we've developed advanced tools to dissect them both in vitro and in vivo. By gaining a comprehensive understanding of each complex's functions, we aim to redefine therapeutic strategies for diseases involving ACVR1 and related receptors.

If you're ready to make an impact and embark on an outstanding scientific journey, apply now! Join our team of driven researchers as we unlock the secrets of connective tissue diseases and pave the way for innovative treatments.

As a Postdoc, a typical day might include:

  • Independently crafting, planning, and performing/supervising in vitro studies, developing bioassays, and analyzing signaling pathways.

  • Applying basic molecular biology techniques and demonstrating expertise in cell culture, including immortalized and embryonic stem cell lines.

  • Performing animal experimentation, dissecting tissues, and collecting samples for analysis.

  • Designing and leading all aspects of advanced flow cytometry (FACS) panels, as well as using imaging methodologies such as confocal microscopy. Familiarity with techniques for visualizing receptor location and trafficking are highly desirable.

  • Collaborating with cross-functional teams, presenting compiled results, documenting procedures, and contributing to publications and conference presentations.

  • Continuously following the current relevant literature, attending scientific meetings, and maintaining expertise in the field of BMP/TGFß signaling and corresponding biology, as well as new areas as needed.

  • Participate in post-doctoral program activities (e.g., weekly meetings and annual research conference)

  • Publishing your groundbreaking research and presenting it at conferences.

This role may be for you if you:

  • Possess a strong desire to contribute to groundbreaking discoveries that challenge existing notions of BMPs and TGFßs signaling.

  • Demonstrate self-motivation, creativity, and a successful background in signal transduction, preferably with experience in laboratory mouse experimentation. We value relevant publications, a passion for basic research, and an interest in translational opportunities.

  • Showcase outstanding scientific skills, including critical and analytical thinking.

  • Exhibit strong communication and presentation abilities.

  • Possess excellent organizational and time management skills, effectively handling multiple tasks and prioritizing them.

  • Display creativity, independence, and the ability to thrive in cross-functional team projects.

To be considered for this role, you must have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, cell biology, developmental biology, or molecular biology. We need someone with hands-on experience in techniques such as flow cytometry, microscopy, cell culture, and mouse experimentation. Expertise in imaging methodologies is highly desired. You will get the opportunity to lead a research project in a fast-paced and results-driven environment.

Please note, the specific starting salary for this role is $86,000.
