Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.
A position is available within the Emory University School of Medicine’s Department Pediatrics in an innovative laboratory that studies the molecular bases of asthma, respiratory failure and airway inflammation in children. Our group has 5 current NIH-funded studies that involve biological sample collection from children with respiratory disorders that are analyzed for gene expression, metabolomic signatures and immune cell functions. This employee will engage with a collaborative interdisciplinary team and an enthusiastic Principal Investigator/mentor to advance knowledge of mechanisms associated with respiratory disorders that can be targeted in future interventional clinical trials. This employee will also design and evaluate experiments and develop new ideas that promote current research independence. This employee will also prepare and publish abstracts, and if desired, scientific manuscripts under the direction of the Principal Investigator. This employee will also be responsible for operation of specific equipment and may teach experimental techniques to others in the laboratory.
