Job Description

Position Summary

The appointment is viewed as a training or transitional period preparatory to an academic, industrial, governmental, or other full-time research or teaching career. The postdoctoral fellow will study mechanisms of kidney injury and repair with an interest in metabolism and opportunities for single cell transcriptomics. The Gewin lab uses transgenic mouse models, murine kidney injury models, and molecular biology techniques using proximal tubule cells in vitro to investigate tubular responses to injury. Experience with these techniques is not required, but highly motivated candidates with a strong work ethic will be competitive.
