This individual should be self-motivated and will be responsible for design, collection, and analysis of research data, maintaining log books, troubleshooting experiments, and training graduate students and research assistants.

The scholar will also be responsible for preparation of manuscripts related to his/her work and strive to obtain their own grants, if possible funding mechanisms exist.

Laboratory experience in molecular biology and pharmacology,

Expertise in mass spectrometry and proteomics analysis, RNA-seq and/or gene array approaches, and flow cytometry, tissue culture techniques, mouse husbandry and handling,
