Postdoctoral Postdoc Position at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill

University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, USA is offering postdoctoral fellowship position in biophysics. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible.

The goal of the Cystic Fibrosis/Pulmonary Research and Treatment Center is to provide the mechanism for generating world-class research into the pathogenesis and treatment of disease that impact on the airways of the human lung. Basic research activities focus on the elucidation of the pathogenesis of human airways diseases at the molecular, biologic, cell biologic, and physiologic levels. Clinical and therapeutic studies focus on specific disease categories, exploring pathophysiologic concepts in patients with these diseases, and, with the collaboration of basic and clinical investigators, developing rational, novel ways for treatment airways diseases. Research into cystic fibrosis is a major focal point of the Center, but other major human airways diseases also are studied. This includes asthma, primary ciliary dyskinesia, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

The position will be based in the laboratory of Dr. Richard Boucher. The research in the laboratory focuses on the biophysics of mucus and how these properties relate to mucus transport in the mammalian lung. The activities will involve a series of in vitro measurements of mucus biophysical properties, coupled to in vivo measurements of mucus transport, that may include simple measures of particle transport, novel use of lasers to measure mucus transport, and optical coherence tomography (OCT). A major part of this job will involve performing a number of molecular studies, including RNA scope technologies, cell biologic studies, including human epithelial culture studies and studies of Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTMs ).
