Postdoctoral Fellow-Surgery & Pharmacology
Postdoctoral Fellow- Department of Surgery & Pharmacology
A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in Dr. Nariman Balenga's Laboratory, Department of Surgery/Pharmacology, University of Maryland Baltimore. We are seeking a talented inventive result-driven scientist to conduct in vitro pharmacological and biochemical assays. This NIH-funded project focuses on novel mechanisms by which the signaling and trafficking of adhesion G protein-coupled receptors (aGPCRs) are regulated. Daily lab work includes running experiments in 96- or 384-well plate formats with several concentrations of agonists/antagonists/inhibitors followed by endpoint or kinetic readouts. Conventional cell lines (e.g. HEK293) and tissue-derived primary cells will be used to unravel receptor motifs that orchestrate signaling and function. A successful postdoc will develop new assays and must be eager to optimize our current assays. Therefore, being meticulous, troubleshooter, and attentive to minor details is a must.
Dr. Balenga is committed to assist the postdoc in her/his career development. We are a team of scientists with diverse backgrounds and welcome candidates from all races, ethnicities, cultures, genders, and gender identities.
