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.
