A full time Post-Doctoral research position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Charles Hong in the Division of Cardiology at the University of Maryland-Baltimore as of June 1, 2018. MD, PhD or MD/PhD scientist is sought to join the emerging field of chemical genetics. The Hong lab has identified a number of small molecules that specifically perturb embryonic patterning. The first goal of the study is to determine how these small molecules function by identifying their cellular targets using cell biological, biochemical and computational approaches. In addition, since aberrant activities of many of developmental pathways are thought to play a major role in pathogenesis of variety of human diseases, such as cancer, metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, an important goal is to explore therapeutic potential these small molecules in various murine disease models.
Applicants are required to have a Ph.D. or M.D. and expertise in techniques of cell and molecular biology. Depending on background and interest, the post-doc will perform experiments involving drug target identification, proteomics, biochemistry, computational biology and/or murine or zebrafish disease models. Prior experience in these methodologies and willingness to learn new techniques are highly valued.
If interested, please email a CV, a short statement of research interests, and the names and contact information for three references to Charles Hong, MD, PhD at Email: firstname.lastname@example.org (after June 1, 2018; before that date, email@example.com)
