The Rubenstein Lab in the Division of Allergy and Pulmonary Medicine and Pediatric Pulmonary Diseases Research Center, Department of Pediatrics, Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to study the mechanisms of action of molecular chaperones in the biogenesis and trafficking of proteins and ion channels relevant to pediatric pulmonary diseases and their complications. These investigations will focus on, but are not limited to studies of epithelial ion channels relevant to Cystic Fibrosis, such as CFTR and ENaC, as well as secreted proteins such as insulin and alpha-1 antitrypsin. Additional information on the Rubenstein group’s work can be found at http://pediatrics.wustl.edu/faculty/Rubenstein_R or http://dbbs.wustl.edu/faculty/Pages/faculty_bio.aspx?SID=7920
Applicants must have a doctoral degree in a relevant field, such as Biochemistry, Cellular and/or Molecular Biology, Physiology or Pharmacology and a strong background in techniques relevant to these fields. Additional experience with elecgrophysioloigc techniques, advanced imaging techniques or proteomic techniques is desirable but not required.
The postdoctoral researcher will have the opportunity to work with a dynamic group within a developing and collaborative research center focused on Pediatric Pulmonary Biology. In addition to high-quality research facilities, career and professional development training for postdoctoral researchers is provided through the Career Center, Teaching Center, Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, and campus groups.
