- POSTDOCTORAL Scholar
An opening for a Postdoctoral Scholar is available to participate in studies of the molecular mechanisms of age-related macular degeneration in a highly productive ocular vascular biology laboratory. Research emphasis will be placed on identifying mechanisms of atrophy and angiogenesis through in vitro and in vivo studies. The candidate should have a Ph.D. in the life sciences or M.D. with extensive basic science experience. Experience in molecular biology techniques such as PCR, in situ hybridization, immunocytochemistry, and immunoblotting is desirable. The successful candidate will be involved in transgenic genomic and proteomic analyses. U.S. citizenship/permanent residency preferred but not required.
(If offered this position, you will be required to pass a pre-employment drug screen and undergo a national background check as required by University of Kentucky Human Resources.)
Please submit CV, cover letter and names of 3 references to:
Director, Ocular Angiogenesis Laboratory
Department of Ophthalmology
University of Kentucky
Lexington, KY 40536-0284
Letters may also be sent by FAX to (859-323-1122)
