Vacancies

Postdoctoral positions are available in Dr. Medvedev's lab, Department of Immunlogy, University of Connecticut Health Center

Location: Farmington, CT


We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher to join our lab in investigating mechanisms of activation of inflammasome pathways in models of sterile injury and redox stress. Our lab is part of the general surgery department and we are interested in all aspects of surgical trauma and hemorrhagic shock, as well as sepsis and critical illness. The postdoc will work on an NIH R01 funded project that focuses on cell type specific inflammasome activation, and in particular on the role of the inflammasome in the liver and hepatocytes. The project focuses also on mitochondrial biology, autophagy and mechanisms of cell death, and is a good mix of pathology, cell signaling and innate immunity.

Our labs are located on the main campus of the University of Pittsburgh just to the east of downtown Pittsburgh. The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine stands among the nation's leading centers of basic and applied biomedical research. Postdocs are vital members of our institutional culture - valued and respected for their significant contributions to the university’s research enterprise. A customized high quality and enriching postdoctoral training experience is assured within our multicultural and multidisciplinary academic health sciences community. Pittsburgh is also consistently ranked as one of "the most livable cities" in the United States.

We have an opening for a talented Senior Scientist to join our Biochemical and Cellular Pharmacology group as part of the Biologics drug discovery program in our South San Francisco location. The successful candidate will be responsible for providing in vitro pharmacology and bioanalytical assay support for multiple projects in the Immunology/Inflammation indications. In this role, the individual will be using advanced and innovative technologies as well as standard medium and high-throughput biochemical and cell-based assay techniques to advance pre-clinical pipeline discovery programs. More specifically, the individual will focus on developing, optimizing and executing functional and mechanistic cell based assays as well as ligand binding immunoassays and will contribute as an integral member of multi-disciplinary drug discovery project teams. In this role, the individual will draw on their strong scientific background in Immunology to provide scientific guidance, mentorship and leadership to a focused team of direct reports, including junior PhD level scientist(s) as well as highly experienced Senior/Scientific Researchers within the Large Molecule Biochemical and Cellular Pharmacology organization. Leadership in development of new technologies, or advanced strategies in functional assay development will also be a key activity of the role,. Close collaboration with therapeutic area biology experts, in vivo Pharmacologists, and Antibody Engineers, Protein Chemists, and Structural Biologists, is essential to success.
