Department Name/Job Location

This position is in the Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care.  This position is for the Medical School Campus.

Essential Functions

The Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis, MO is recruiting post-doctoral research associates/scholars to participate in NIH funded programs. The laboratory of Dr. Michael Holtzman focuses on drug development for post-viral lung disease, including influenza and coronavirus infections, covering the spectrum from progressive respiratory failure to chronic conditions, such as asthma. The project also extends this issue into cancer models that overlap in epithelial stem cell biology. The project covers the entire range of drug discovery and development, but current goals are focused on pharmacology and toxicology to enable the next step to clinical application.

Activities include studies in mice and rats in vivo to assess mechanism, pharmacokinetics, and toxicokinetics, as well as working in collaboration with lab members performing medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, structural and cell biology to define drug-target interactions and signaling mechanism of action. In addition, there will be collaboration with CRO- and biotech-based activities. 

These full-time and benefit-eligible positions offer opportunities for independent and collaborative research, as well as participation in grant and manuscript writing. 

For consideration as a postdoctoral trainee (Scholar) on the Division’s long running NIH/NHLBI T32 training grant, candidates must have a M.D., Ph.D., or comparable degree, US citizenship or permanent residency, and less than three years of NRSA support. 

Required Qualifications

Ph.D., M.D. or an equivalent terminal or doctoral degree.

Preferred Qualifications

  • Strong background in bench-level cell and molecular assays for RNA and/or protein, conventional and fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, pharmacology and toxicology using vitro and in vivo approaches, and mouse models of viral infection and/or cancer.
  • Prior experience with mouse models is helpful. 

Salary Range

Base pay commensurate with experience.
