*** this position has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

A postdoctoral fellowship position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Howard A. Rockman at Duke University. The focus of the laboratory is to understand the molecular mechanism and physiological function of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) signaling in the context of cardiac disease. Overall goal of the laboratory is to identify new GPCR ligands that have therapeutic potential for cardiovascular disease. Projects involve affinity-based screens of DNAencoded small molecule libraries to identify receptor allosteric modulators, functional characterization of identified compounds on receptor pharmacology, cellular signaling and in vivo cardiac physiology. This is an excellent opportunity to participate in an exciting research program, work highly collaboratively with top GPCR researchers in the field, and gain broad range expertise in multidisciplinary in vitro and in vivo systems including protein purification, protein and cell-based assays and in vivo cardiac physiology in animal models.


Qualifications and Experience: • Motivated and have a strong background in biochemistry and/or cell biology. • Knowledge in signal transduction and GPCR pharmacology is highly desirable. • Experience with cell-based assays, protein expression, purification and biochemical characterization or medicinal chemistry is preferred.

To Apply: Please send a cover letter with CV and names of three references (including e-mail addresses and telephone numbers) to Dr. Howard A. Rockman at h.rockman@duke.edu. Apply at Duke Careers: https://careers.duke.edu/ Req. number 230762
