NIH-sponsored post-doctoral position is available to study basic mechanisms of liver fibrosis using animal models of obesity/non-alcoholic and alcoholic steatohepatitis with a special focus on aging and matrix biology. The project will have translational components. Expertise in liver disease models, redox signaling, matrix biology and immunology is a plus.
The Postdoctoral Fellow will be expected to build a publication record in leading hepatology, aging and/or immunology journals. He/she will also supervise undergraduate, graduate and medical students. The project has collaborative aspects and opportunities to learn new technologies. The post-doctoral fellow will be expected to apply for internal and/or extramural funding, and to attend conferences to build their international reputation.
