Postdoctoral Researcher in Skeletal Development, Disease, and Repair

Posted by , on 21 October 2014

Closing Date: 15 March 2021


A postdoctoral research position is available in the Hilton Laboratory within the Duke Orthopaedic Cellular, Developmental, and Genome Laboratories at Duke University School of Medicine. The primary research focus of this position will utilize novel mouse genetic and surgical models to study  skeletal development, disease, and repair/regeneration with a particular emphasis on identifying underlying molecular mechanisms that contribute to normal skeletal development and repair processes or the pathogenesis of disease. One of the major focuses of the Hilton Lab is to utilize conditional (Cre/LoxP) mutant and transgenic mouse models coupled with primary cell culture and biochemistry to understand the contributions of various signaling pathways to the development and maintenance of the growth plate and joint cartilages, as well as, to normal fracture repair and bone regneration. Successful candidates will have recently obtained a PhD degree with a strong background in molecular, cellular, or developmental biology. Detailed knowledge of signaling pathways and prior experience with transgenic and “knock-out” mouse models and/or skeletal biology is preferred. Candidates should provide a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three professional references.
