Weill Cornell Medical college and Hospital for Special Surgery Postdoctral Position

A postdoc position in Dr. Baohong Zhao’s lab at Weill Cornell Medical School and the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan New York.

We study osteoimmunology, an interdisciplinary field linking bone biology and immune system, with a focus on the inflammatory regulation of gene expression and signaling in osteoclastogenesis, adipogenesis and skeletal damage involved in diseases, such as osteoporosis and inflammatory arthritis. Candidates from bone biology, adipocyte cell biology, immunology, metabolism and/or related areas are welcome to apply. A successful candidate is expected to have strong cellular and molecular techniques, such as cloning, co-IP, ChIP and signaling analysis. Histology and handling genetic animal models are preferred. As the projects will include genome-wide studies, experience or strong interest in RNAseq and/or ChIPseq is welcome. Candidates should have peer-reviewed first author articles and strong critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. PhD candidates expected graduations are highly encouraged to apply.
