Available Postdoctoral Position Details
Posted: 3/29/2010
Dr. Peltier has a major interest in investigating diabetic neuropathy. We are looking for a postdoc to join us for the study. Our research project will utilize human skin biopsies to investigate alterations of molecules in dermal nerve fibers from patients with diabetes. The candidate is expected to be highly motivated for scientific research. He/she should have a PhD degree or equivalent. Experience in conventional histology and immunohistochemistry is essential for this project. Interested individuals should send your CV to Dr. Amanda Peltier’s email address.
