Postdoctoral Associate, Flanagan-Steet Lab, Greenwood Genetic Center, Greenwood, SC


A grant-supported postdoctoral position aimed at defining pathogenic mechanisms
of pediatric disease is available immediately in the Flanagan-Steet lab within the JC
Self Research Institute of the Greenwood Genetic Center (GGC). The GGC is a nonprofit
clinical, diagnostic and research center whose mission is to advance diagnoses
and treatment for children with rare genetic diseases. The Research Division is
equipped with state-of-the-art technology and equipment, including a new
aquaculture facility. This position offers a unique opportunity to engage directly
with clinical and molecular geneticists to better understand the genetic basis and
molecular pathogenesis of inherited disorders.

We are seeking a highly motivated individual who can address complex questions
regarding disease pathogenesis. Although projects involve zebrafish, zebrafish
specific experience is not required. The successful candidate will use a combination
of cell and animal systems in a highly collaborative environment to investigate
disease mechanisms at a molecular and cellular level. Applicants are expected to
have a strong record of first author publications from their Ph.D. work, experience
with molecular and cell biological techniques and skill in both written and verbal
communication. Interested applicants should send their cover letter, resume and list
of professional references to Dr. Heather Flanagan-Steet.
