POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE
University of Washington, School of Pharmacy, Seattle, WA

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Nichole Klatt at the University of Washington in Seattle, Department of Pharmaceutics, Washington National Primate Research Center AIDS division in Seattle, WA. Dr. Klatt’s research lab focuses on understanding mechanisms underlying mucosal dysfunction during HIV infection, and developing novel therapeutic interventions to treat HIV disease pathogenesis and prevent HIV acquisition, using non-human primate models of SIV infection.

Highly motivated scientists with a background in immunology, virology, cell biology, animal disease models are encouraged to apply. Candidates with backgrounds in HIV research and/or mucosal immunology will be preferred. There is a strong focus on mucosal immunology, HIV reservoirs, and designing therapeutic trials for HIV cure and prevention.

Advanced training and experience in multi-color flow cytometry, including FACS analysis and interpretation required. Training in PCR, ELISA, ELISPOT, cell culture, and tissue processing preferred. Experience in mucosal immunology and non-human primate or human mucosal tissue processing and research preferred.

Candidates must have expertise in data analysis, using the computer programs excel, prism, flowjo and adobe illustrator. Manuscript and figure preparation, grant writing skills, and a strong publication record required.

POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE

University of Washington, School of Pharmacy, Seattle, WA

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Joanne Wang at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. This research is focused on understanding the function of membrane transporters and their pharmacological roles in drug disposition and drug-drug interactions using molecular, cellular, and transgenic mouse models. The project involves the use of mRNA/protein analyses, RT-PCR cloning and protein expression, cell-based transport assays, fluorescence-based inhibitor screening, and in vivo studies in transgenic mouse models. Candidates should possess a recent Ph.D. degree in biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, or related disciplines. Candidates should have a strong background in molecular biology and be experienced in working with mice. Prior experience with membrane transporters is preferred. Candidates should possess strong communication skills and a solid publication record. Please submit CV, a cover letter, and names/contact information of three references to Dr. Joanne Wang by email (jowang@uw.edu).
