New Jersey Medical School, Rutgers University Postdoctoral Position

Job Description
Postdoctoral Fellowship to study gut microbiota and nutritional physiology at the New Jersey Medical School, Rutgers University

A postdoctoral fellow is being recruited for an exciting research project aiming to gain an understanding of how probiotics and pathobionts metabolize dietary amino acids into dissimilar ligands that elicit differential mucosal modulating effects via the host Aryl Hydrocarbon Receptor. Individuals eligible to be employed as a postdoctoral researcher should have completed their PhD studies within the last four years.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in microbiology, molecular biology or related disciplines. Experience working with gut microbiome, metabolomics and bioinformatics in microbiome research is preferred. Individuals will learn methods related to the study of metabolites from germ-free mice in a new gnotobiotic facility,
intestinal perfusion of these metabolites in vivo, and responses to these metabolites by intestinal organoids in vitro. The successful applicant thus has the opportunity to learn experimental approaches ranging from molecular to integrative. He/she must be able to work independently and interact with a multidisciplinary research team, and thus possess strong interpersonal and communication skills. Excellent verbal communication
and writing skills in English are a precondition.

Application process
An initial application must contain the following documents in English:
A complete curriculum vitae, including date (or scheduled date) of the thesis defence,title of the thesis, current position, academic distinctions, list of publications and list of five references with email addresses.
Initial applications, including a cover letter, must be sent in a single pdf file to rjs419@gsbs.rutgers.edu and ferraris@njms.rutgers.edu
Review of applications begins November 19, 2018.

Position description
The fellow will be employed at the Department of Physiology, Pharmacology and Neuroscience, New Jersey Medical School, Rutgers University, Newark, NJ, about 20 km west of Manhattan, New York City. The fellowship is funded by a NIH grant and is renewable annually for up to 4 years. He/she will have the opportunity to learn nutritional physiology in the Ferraris laboratory (https://njmsweb.njms.rutgers.edu/profile/myProfile.php?mbmid=ferraris) and stem cell biology in the Gao laboratory (http://runewarkbiology.rutgers.edu/Gao%20Lab/index.html).
