The Miller lab in the Dept. of Biochemistry at the University of Washington School of Medicine is recruiting postdocs for multiple NIH-funded projects. Our research aims to understand the mechanisms that translate changes in environmental conditions to physiological responses. We are especially focuses on responses to decreased oxygen availability (hypoxia), effects of exposure to hydrogen sulfide, and how hypoxia and hydrogen sulfide signaling interact. You can learn more about our group and our research at our website: http://depts.washington.edu/gasgenes/.
We are specifically looking for postdocs to lead projects related to two projects:
- Investigating epigenetic effects of hydrogen sulfide exposure.
- Mechanistic basis of the effects of hypoxia on lifespan and proteostasis.
The ideal candidates will have recently received (or be near receiving) a PhD in molecular genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, or a similar field. Research productivity, as evidenced by publications in peer-reviewed journals is expected. Excellent verbal and written skills in English are required. Experience with C. elegans or other genetic model systems is preferred but not essential.
Interested applicants should email Dana (DLM16[at]uw[dot]edu) with a CV, contact information for at least three references, and a 1-pg cover letter explaining the importance of your prior research and why you are interested in joining our team.
The Miller Lab and University of Washington are Equal Opportunity Employers, and we value diversity in our team.
