A postdoctoral position is available within the Adam lab in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Physiology at Albany Medical Center in Albany, NY. Our NIH/NIGMS-funded research focuses on the endothelial transcriptional and post-transcriptional changes that regulate vascular leakage and pathogenic angiogenesis in severe inflammation, using a combination of in vitro assays, mouse models, and human tissues. Our current projects involve the endothelial roles in: 1) sepsis and septic shock, 2) uveitis and related chorioretinal diseases and 3) pre-eclampsia. In parallel, we are performing translational studies to understand the inflammatory phenotype of the epidermis from patients with rosacea.
The candidate must have a strong interest in endothelial cell biology and inflammation. They must be highly motivated to learn state-of-the-art techniques, develop animal models, be hardworking, be driven to write manuscripts and grant applications and maintain intramural and extramural collaborations. The ideal candidate will have experience in transcriptional and post-transcriptional gene regulation (Single-cell RNA-Seq, Ribotag), plasmid/virus generation and molecular biology, mouse surgery and treatments, and advanced microscopy techniques (TIRF, STED, computer-assisted image analysis). Candidates must be receiving a PhD, MD or MD/PhD degree prior to starting the postdoc (or have recently earned such a degree) and be fluent in English.
Albany Medical College is an equal opportunity employer. Minorities are encouraged to apply. We offer a competitive salary, excellent work environment and multiple opportunities to grow as a scientist.
