Postdoctoral Fellowship in Kidney and Metabolic Research is available at Northwestern University Department of Nephrology. The Feinberg Cardiovascular and Renal Research Institute is seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated scientist for the expansion of basic and translational studies related to molecular mechanisms of kidney disease.
This position offers the opportunity to work in the NIH-funded lab of Dr. Pinelopi Kapitsinou, a physician-scientist with a background in translational hypoxia biology, mechanisms of acute kidney injury, and progression to chronic kidney disease. We are particularly interested in exploring the effects of hypoxia-induced metabolic reprogramming in diseased kidney tissue microenvironment utilizing molecular biology, biochemical, and metabolomic approaches. Transgenic mice, primary cells, and other cell culture systems are used as main experimental models.
The department offers a nurturing environment for career development, a stimulating community of several kidneys and cardiovascular research labs, weekly conferences and seminars of interest. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to build a publication record including submissions to leading experimental research journals; supervise rotating undergraduate, graduate and medical students; apply for grants, and present at national meetings.
