9/1/2020 - The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill/UNC Blood Research Center
Post-Doctoral Research Opportunity in the Wolberg Lab
An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Alisa Wolberg’s Lab (https://www.med.unc.edu/wolberglab/) in the UNC at Chapel Hill Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. We use in vivo and in vitro models to investigate coagulation mechanisms in health and disease. We also investigate established drugs and new therapeutics in preclinical development to understand their role in reducing and preventing disease. Active projects focus on arterial and venous thrombosis, hormone-induced thrombosis, hemophilia, and cancer. For the new postdoc position, we especially seek individuals interested in pulmonary embolism, cell biology of coagulation factor production, and/or the intersection of procoagulant and fibrinolytic mechanisms in obesity and cancer.
UNC Chapel Hill is one of the premier research institutions in the USA, featuring top-ranked Departments, Centers, and Core Facilities. The Wolberg lab is part of the UNC Blood Research Center (https://www.med.unc.edu/bloodresearchcenter/) located within the UNC School of Medicine. This highly-collaborative and interdisciplinary group includes researchers from the UNC Departments of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Medicine, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, and Pharmacy, and neighboring institutions. Our lab emphasizes a culture of diversity, responsibility, independence and collaboration, and shared excitement for scientific discovery.
Enthusiastic individuals with a passion for science and figuring things out are encouraged to apply. Candidates must have a PhD and/or MD degree, and previous experience in scientific research and writing (published, peer-reviewed scientific papers). Experience in coagulation research, mouse models of disease, and cell biology is strongly-preferred, but not required. Competitive salary and benefits are offered. UNC-CH is an equal opportunity employer.
Interested applicants are invited to send a copy of their curriculum vitae, contact information for three references (address, phone number, email), and a brief statement of career goals to Dr. Wolberg at [email protected].
