We aim to create a fun, dynamic, and collaborative academic environment to prepare you for a successful career in biomedical sciences. Our team works on various aspects of bone biology, particularly related to osteoblasts and osteocyte biology. In addition, we work closely with an outstanding team of investigators interested in musculoskeletal biology, mechano-transduction, and aging. We welcome differing scientific perspectives, those with strong opinions, and those open to trying out new things. We take a lot of pride in the breadth of methods we use to investigate scientific questions, and we want like-minded lab members. While many of the projects are NIH funded, our goal is to do good science wherever the data leads us.
This posting is to recruit a post-doctoral research fellow who is interested in examining the molecular and cellular regulation of bone modeling and remodeling with a focus on cell-to-cell communication among osteoblasts and osteocytes and mechano-transduction. This position is in an NIH-funded laboratory in the Department of Orthopaedics at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore.
The work will involve mouse models, cell culture, and molecular and cell biological methods. The applicant must be motivated, attentive to detail, and work well with others. Effective communication and writing skills are mandatory and evidence of previous research productivity is highly desirable. Background in skeletal biology or molecular and cell biological methods is preferable, but the goals of this position are to not only train you, but also to learn from you new methods or perspectives for tackling scientific problems.
Typical duties include: Planning and performing experiments using common molecular and cell biology techniques, in vivo and ex vivo assessment of bone quality, work with genetically modified mice, performing tissue culture with primary and cell lines, preparing laboratory solutions, maintaining an accurate and up to date laboratory notebook, writing manuscripts and presenting data locally and nationally. In addition, the post-doctoral fellow may be asked to supervise and instruct new and existing lab members.
To apply, send a cover letter indicating the research area of interest, curriculum vitae, one-page summary of Ph.D. dissertation research and the contact information of three references.
An M.D. or Ph.D. degree with experience in molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry or related fields is preferred.
