A full time Post-Doctoral research position is available in thelaboratory of Dr. Charles Hong in the Division of Cardiology at theUniversity of Maryland-Baltimore as of June 1, 2018. MD, PhD orMD/PhD scientist is sought to join the emerging field of chemicalgenetics. The Hong lab has identified a number of small moleculesthat specifically perturb embryonic patterning. The first goal ofthe study is to determine how these small molecules function byidentifying their cellular targets using cell biological,biochemical and computational approaches. In addition, sinceaberrant activities of many of developmental pathways are thoughtto play a major role in pathogenesis of variety of human diseases,such as cancer, metabolic and cardiovascular diseases, an importantgoal is to explore therapeutic potential these small molecules invarious murine disease models.Qualifications :Applicants are required to have a Ph.D. or M.D. and expertise intechniques of cell and molecular biology. Depending on backgroundand interest, the post-doc will perform experiments involving drugtarget identification, proteomics, biochemistry, computationalbiology and/or murine or zebrafish disease models. Prior experiencein these methodologies and willingness to learn new techniques arehighly valued.If interested, please email a CV, a short statement of researchinterests, and the names and contact information for threereferences to Charles Hong, MD, PhD atEmail: [email protected](after June 1, 2018; before that date,[email protected])University of Maryland is an Equal Opportunity Employer encouragingexcellence through diversity.
