A position is available for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Pharmacology. The
successful candidate will be expected to conduct research in the field of G Protein Coupled Receptor and G Protein Signaling. It is expected that the candidate will perform the following activities semi-independently under the supervision of the laboratory P.I.; conduct research, apply for postdoctoral fellowships, present results at scientific meetings, and publish findings in peer-reviewed journals.
Ph.D. or M.D. with an emphasis in Pharmacology or Biochemistry. Relevant graduate level experience in GPCR/G protein signaling is desired, but previous postdoctoral experience is unnecessary. Previous record of publication in primary research journals is required. Evidence of presentation(s) at national/international meetings and evidence of application to or awarding of pre-doctoral fellowship awards is a strong plus. Extensive biochemical and cell biological experience is required in purifying recombinant proteins, performing GPCR/G protein enzymatic analyses, measuring GPCR/G protein effector readouts in cell-based assays, and drug/ligand screening against drug targets. Expertise in eukaryotic cell culture, molecular biology, and the willingness to work with low amounts of radioisotopes is also required.
University of Michigan Health System conducts background screening and pre-employment drug testing on job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent job offer and may use a third party administrator to conduct background screenings. Background screenings are performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Report Act.
Job openings are posted for a minimum of seven calendar days. This job may be removed from posting boards and filled anytime after the minimum posting period has ended.
