|Position Title||Department||Description||Application Deadline|
|Postdoctoral Associate, Human ES and iPS Cells for Engineering of Functional Heart Tissues||Biomedical Engineering||
Our group has been pursuing the use of human pluripotent stem cells for generation of new drug development and disease modeling assays as well as treatment of cardiac infarction and arrhythmias. The ongoing research involves:
|Postdoctoral Associate, Cardiology||Medicine/Cardiovascular Medicine||
A postdoctoral position is available to study the roles of ubiquitination in G protein-couled receptor (GPCR) signaling. The group is interested in identifying novel mechanisms of GPCR regulation and signal transduction. This includes pathways involving beta-arrestins and arrestin-domain containing proteins. We employ various techniques ranging from in vitro assays to animal models.
|Postdoctoral Associate, Molecular Bacteriology and Immunology||Duke Human Vaccine Institute||
The Duke Human Vaccine Institute, under the direction of Dr. Barton Haynes, is a place of national and international leadership in the fight against major infectious diseases. The DHVI is currently recruiting for a Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Bacteriology and Immunology.
|Postdoctoral Associate, Immunology/Microbiology||Duke Human Vaccine Institute & the Center for HIV/AIDS Vaccine Immunology-Immunogen Discovery (CHAVI-ID)||
The Duke Human Vaccine Institute and the Center for HIV/AIDS Vaccine Immunology-Immunogen Discovery (CHAVI-ID), providing national and international leadership in the fight against major infectious diseases, is currently recruiting for a Postdoctoral position in Immunology/Microbiology.
|Postdoctoral Associate, Biostatistics||Duke Human Vaccine Institute||
Dr. Gregory D. Sempowski in the Duke Human Vaccine Institute is recruiting for a postdoctoral fellow to work on an international team of nine labs funded by NIAID/NIH to study the effects of atomic bomb radiation and aging on the human immune system. Investigators in both the United States and Japan are systematically analyzing biological samples from the unique population of elderly Japanese atomic bomb survivors to better understand the health consequences of exposure to ionizing radiation on the natural aging process.
|Postdoctoral Associate, Pharmacology and Cancer Biology||Pharmacology and Cancer Biology||
A postdoctoral position is available immediately to study the role of protein tyrosine kinases and associated multi-protein complexes in the regulation of cell growth, survival, migration and invasion during normal development and cancer. We seek to define the mechanisms whereby Abl kinases and associated adaptors affect intercellular “conversations” in normal and cancer cells.
