An established biomaterials laboratory at UNC – Chapel Hill at the Department of Applied Physical Sciences, seeks two post-doctoral Research Associates to participate in a rapidly developing research program studying lung muco-obstructive diseases and fibrosis therapeutic development, two areas of urgent clinical need. Multiple therapeutic modalities will be evaluated for target engagement, molecular mechanisms and therapeutic efficacy. The Research Associate should have an interest in and research experience cellular and molecular biology, lung disease and animal models. In addition to bench research, the post-doctoral fellow will be actively involved with data analysis, writing scientific papers and grant proposals and presenting data at scientific meetings. Experience in biophysics and material science is a plus!
Education and Experience:
Hands-on experience with biophysical measurements, cell culture, and microscopy skills would be ideal.
