Positions Available for Ph.Ds
Description: A major focus of the laboratory is to understand the mechanisms by which beta-arrestin proteins regulate inflammation and airway hyperresponsiveness in a mouse model of allergic airways disease. Other interests include the mechanisms by which ?2-adrenergic receptors become refractory in asthmatics. In vivo, ex vivo and in vitro techniques are being used to address these questions including cell culture, RT-PCR, immunoblotting, histology, whole animal anesthetized and organ tissue bath preparations. Research activities of the successful applicant within the funded project “T cell function in asthma depends on a novel signaling pathway” will focus on how regulation of T cell chemotaxis influences the development of allergic airways disease in mice.
Requirements: The successful applicant will possess an appropriate combination of relevant education (PhD in biological sciences, MD, or VMD), experience and enthusiasm for research as well as a good command of the English language.Additional Information: The successful applicant will join a small laboratory that is part of a larger Duke Asthma and Allergy Airway Center and is interactive with other laboratories within the Department of Medicine at Duke.
