Two Postdoctoral Positions - Ramhan Lab (Pediatrics)
Two NIH-funded postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Arshad Rahman in the Department of Pediatrics.

The project will pursue integrated in vitro and in vivo studies utilizing multidisciplinary approaches ranging from biochemical, cellular and molecular biology to in vivo gene delivery and lung physiology to study pulmonary endothelium responses during acute lung inflammation and injury. The positions are funded for a minimum three years, and the compensation will be based on current NIH guidelines.
