We hope to add a driven, resourceful individual to our team at the Azeloglu Lab in the Department of Pharmacological Sciences at Mount Sinai. We are a multidisciplinary group studying systems-level characteristics of cellular mechanobiology using a wide variety of biological and engineering methods. Projects may range from biophysical fingerprinting of drug toxicity to multi-omics screening of new drug targets for nephropathy. All team members are expected to get their hands dirty with both the experimental and computational aspects of the work. The ideal individual should have a PhD in biological/biomedical sciences or bioengineering, and should value curiosity and critical thinking just as much as technical prowess as a bench scientist. Some key aspects that would undoubtedly help:
- Experience in molecular and cellular biology techniques
- Deep understanding of cell signaling and cell-cell communication, especially pathways associated with mechanobiology
- Bonus: knowledge of next-generation sequencing or proteomics
- Bonus: experience with in vitro or animal models of human disease
- Brownie points: knowledge of kidney biology and physiology
