We are seeking a self-motivated postdoctoral fellow to work on the Tox21 research projects in development of physiologically relevant assays for assessment of environmental chemicals. The NCATS has a unique and exciting environment employing state-of-art technologies on assay development, chemical screening, and profiling for toxicology research. The fellow will develop in vitro cell-based assays using physiologically relevant cell models (primary cells, stem cell/iPS-derived cells, and 3-D cell/organoid models) with biotransformation-capability for screening chemicals. The fellow will apply new technologies including 3-D cell/organoid models and high content phenotypic profiling using cell-based imaging assays for evaluating chemical toxicity. The fellow will perform follow-up studies (e.g., mechanisms of compound action) after the primary screening. The fellow will also interact regularly with informatics scientists to aid data analysis and interpretation.
How to Apply?
Applicants should send a letter stating their research interests and goals, a CV including bibliography, and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent by e-mail to the respective scientific contacts. Apply on the NIH website.
