Available Postdoctoral Position Details
Posted: 11/20/2014
A NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Lisa Young in the Division of Pulmonary Medicine. Our lab studies how epithelial dysfunction results in pulmonary fibrosis, with particular interest in heritable disorders. Current projects in the lab are focused on alveolar epithelial cell biology including the
consequences of intracellular trafficking defects, cross-talk between alveolar epithelial cells, macrophages, and other effector cell populations, and oxidative stress. Other projects include focus on discovery of the genetic basis of human lung diseases and development of biomarkers. Experience in cellular and molecular biology is strongly desired.

Interested candidates are asked to send a C.V. and names of 3 references to
