The overall goal of our research is to provide the basis for improved diagnostic capabilities and facilitate the development of more effective treatment and prevention strategies. This particular position is funded by a minority fellowship grant, a grant designed to increase participation in the scientific research workforce of historically underrepresented groups. We encourage all individuals to apply if it is determined you are not eligible for a minority fellowship grant position you will be considered for other positions. There are multiple fellowship opportunities throughout TGen. We are seeking a post-doctoral fellow to investigate proteomic and transcriptomic signatures in blood-based Extracellular Vesicles (EV) indicative of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD). The successful candidate will also design and execute in vitro experiments to isolate proteins and RNAs that are differentially abundant between individuals with normal liver fat content and those with fatty liver and characterize the functional effects of these EV-derived cargoes on different cell types of the liver. Duties and Responsibilities: * Performs, on an independent basis, all phases of experimental investigations, and being responsible to the Principal Investigator in the planning, developing, operating, recording, collaborating, and reporting of major projects. * Collaborates with Principal Investigators and senior researchers in the development of major research projects. * Provides guidance to laboratory staff in one or more laboratory areas, including technicians, support, and auxiliary staff. Performs as the technical advisor on techniques involving complex analyses utilizing highly sophisticated techniques. Serves as primary contact with researcher staff for technical services on major techniques, recording devices, and statistical procedures relative to the specifically assigned field. * Reviews quality control of new or modified laboratory techniques that affect any part of major projects. * Performs routine and non-routine tests leading to the successful completion of developed experiments. * Assists in the assembly/writing of manuscripts (scientific papers) and grants and keep abreast of current literature. * Conducts scientific presentations at national and international meetings (once or twice a year). Presents scientific findings at departmental meetings (monthly). * Performs various administrative tasks (i.e., order supplies, paperwork, etc. * Performs all other duties as assigned Requirements A Ph.D. in genetics, genomics, molecular biology, or related field and a strong commitment to translational research Expertise in standard molecular and cellular biology techniques and functional genomics Strong oral and written communication skills Ability and desire to work both independently and as part of a highly effective and enthusiastic research team Curiosity and an unwavering desire to enhance scientific knowledge Tgen Phoenix AZ
