Post-doctoral Positions at BioMET and Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, University of Maryland School of Medicine
Two postdoctoral positions are available in Center for Biomedical Engineering and Technology (BioMET) and Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, USA. Our laboratory focuses on elucidation of mammalian prion replication mechanism. Ongoing studies include biochemical, molecular imaging, structural, cellular, neuropathological and experimental animal approaches to understand the mechanisms by which prions replicate, to elucidate molecular structure and define molecular features responsible for prion infectivity and prion strain diversity.
These positions are intended for highly motivated individuals with new or recent PhD in biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology, neuroscience, cell and molecular biology or related fields. Candidates with experience in one of the following areas are preferred: prions, membrane and lipid biology, neuropathology. Candidates are expected to have analytical skills and be proficient in oral and written communication. Send or email a curriculum vitae, a letter stating research interest and contact information for three references to:
