Postdoctoral Research Associate_Roth Lab_1

The University Of North Carolina Chapel Hill , NC 27516

Posted 3 months ago

This position is available immediately for an enthusiastic and experienced postdoctoral fellow in the general area of GPCR drug discovery in the Roth lab at UNC-Chapel Hill. This project requires a working knowledge of GPCR pharmacology and in vitro pharmacology (e.g. radioligand binding, second messenger assays).This post-doctoral research associate position's main duties are in the field of molecular pharmacology.

The skills to perform this research require expertise in molecular biology, tissue culture, high-content imaging, and drug discovery-based pharmacology.

The job duties include planning the experiments according to protocols and developing new protocols to address new questions. The experiments will be conducted by the post-doctoral researcher; at times as part of a team but, for the vast majority as an individual.

Results will be collected and analyzed by the research associate then reported to the Primary Investigator. The Primary Investigator will guide the research associate in interpreting the results of the experiments. Results will be published in academic journals and be presented orally at scientific meetings.

At least two years post-doctoral research experience in pharmacology or drug discovery setting. Cell & molecular biology experience; especially expression of GPCR's, transporters and ion channels for various assay platforms. Practical experience in adapting protocols to new methodologies and assay platforms. US Citizens, Permanent Residents or those with a valid US Visas only.PhD in the field of Pharmacology, Biochemistry

VIEW JOBS 10/20/2019 12:00:00 AM 2020-01-18T00:00 The selected individual will isolate zoosporic fungi from the rumen using anaerobic culturing techniques and genetically-modify them using Agrobacterium-mediated transformation. The goal is to understand the cell biology of zoosporic fungi and study their role in the rumen. S/he will use anaerobic gas chambers, microscopy, standard cloning techniques, PCR/DNA sequencing to validate transformants. S/he will be trained in Agrobacterium-mediated transformation by the Buchler lab. Duties & Responsibilities: • Use molecular biology (PCR, cloning, transformation, genetics) to make strains • Isolate and grow zoosporic fungi in anaerobic conditions. • Grow Agrobacterium in anaerobic conditions. • Transform zoosporic fungi using Agrobacterium-mediated transformation in anaerobic conditions. • Make detailed observations, analyze data, and interpret results from assays. • Prepare presentation summaries, protocols, and quantitative analyses. • Utilize good laboratory practice including record keeping and lab maintenance. • Contribute to grant writing and manuscript preparation, writing, editing, and authorship. • May be required to perform other duties as business needs dictate. Ph.D. or equivalent doctorate (e.g., M.D., D.V.M., Sc.D.) in appropriate field awarded no more than five (5) years from initial date of postdoctoral appointment. Must have a DVM and experience with microbiology, or PhD in Biology, Bioengineering, Genetics, Microbiology, Cell Biology or related field. The University Of North Carolina Chapel Hill NC
