A new postdoctoral position is available at the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, in Dr. Keith Kirkwood’s laboratory. The successful candidate will participate in research projects recently funded by NIH. The project seeks to understand how aging contributes to bone loss through the expansion of myeloid-derived suppressor cell populations in oral and non-oral bone. The studies integrate RNA biology, osteoclastogenesis and skeletal biology.
The successful candidate must have a MD or PhD degree in biomedical science with published experience in any of these fields:
o molecular biology
o cell biology
o bone/osteoclast biology
o Flow cytometry
o transgenic animal work and animal husbandry/colony management
o Experience with immunohistochemistry, imaging including micro-computed tomography
o Experience with Nanostring and qRT-PCR technologies
o Experience with magnetic cell sorting
o Small animal surgery
o Recent graduates with qualifications are encouraged to apply.
