Postdoctoral Research Opportunity – Mitochondrial Metabolism and Lung Stem Cells

Location: United States
Application Deadline: Open until filled
Published: 4 weeks ago

Follow us

Postdoctoral fellow positions are available in The Han Lab in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago.

The Han lab studies the mechanisms of how lung epithelial cells repair after injury and how aberrant repair occurs resulting in fibrosis, especially in the elderly. We are particularly interested in mitochondrial metabolism and how cellular metabolism affects lung epithelial stem cell function and fate, in the context of lung development and lung repair after injury. We are also interested in how lung epithelial stem cells interact with other cell types, such as immune cells and mesenchymal cells, during repair after lung injury and the development of pulmonary fibrosis. We apply a multidisciplinary strategy using elaborately designed genetic knock-out and knock-in mouse systems, in vitro organoid models, RNA-sequencing, and metabolomics. The research projects are funded by grants from the NIH and private foundations.

Candidates should hold a PhD or equivalent degree with interest and expertise in the biology of lung and/or cellular metabolism, and wet lab experience in animal models and cellular biology.  Northwestern University offers an outstanding pulmonary and cell biology community and a desirable location within the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago.

Interested applicants should email a CV, a cover letter that describes research interests and career goals, and a list of 3 references to Dr. SeungHye Han at shan@northwestern.edu
