Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Connecticut
A postdoctoral position is available at the University of Connecticut in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Pharmacology Program. The position is in the laboratory of Dr. Brian Aneskievich (http://pharmacy.uconn.edu/brian-aneskievich/). The fellow will join efforts in deciphering hyperproliferative and inflammatory consequences in mouse and human keratinocytes subsequent to altered expression of TNIP1, a modulator of signal pathways occurring post cell membrane and nuclear receptor activation. Our laboratory identified TNIP1 as an agonist-dependent corepressor of PPAR and RAR; additionally, TNIP1 dampens NF-kappaB cytoplasmic signaling downstream of several cytokine receptors. Separately, TNIP1 is linked to several chronic inflammatory diseases by GWAS identification of associated SNPs.
The successful candidate will use our TNIP1 knock-out mouse to isolate tissue for immuo-histochemical analysis, keratinocytes for cytokine/chemokine response assays, proliferation and differentiation studies, employing a wide range of analytical approaches (immunoblotting, image analysis, qPCR, targeted microarray, etc). Parallel studies will be done with expression knockdown in human keratinocyte organotypic cultures. Initiative and communication skills will be key.
· PhD in Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, or related field
· Demonstrated experience with protein and gene expression analytical techniques
· Experience in mammalian cell culture
· Familiarity with mouse model systems
· Excellent oral and written communication skills
