Candidates will join our funded research programs and have the capacity to conduct both basic and translational research, both individually and collaboratively. The postdoctoral fellows will also play a major role in the preparation of manuscripts that arise from his/her work and will be expected to present his/her work at local and national meetings. The candidate will devote 100% effort to these tasks and the salary will match the current NIH guidelines.

Preference will be given to candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas: cell and molecular biology, steroid-receptor biology, bioinformatics and statistics, RNAseq analysis, and some experience with urological research. Qualified individuals will demonstrate the potential for research as evidenced by their training and peer-reviewed publications and are expected to eventually compete for national grants. Candidates will be initially evaluated based on their CV and research summary, and upon request will be further evaluated via an interview and reference letters.

Please contact Drs. Nonn and Vander Griend directly and send current curriculum vitae, one-page summary of research and the names of three references.
