The Free Radical and Radiation Biology Program (FRRBP) in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Iowa is seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Scholar to conduct translational research on the redox biology of arthritis. This position will explore the intersection between redox metabolism and inflammation during arthritis development in order to identify and ultimately test new strategies for preventing arthritis. FRRBP is involved in conducting high impact basic science studies for translation into clinically viable therapies.
Conduct laboratory and animal experiments including survival surgeries and histological analyses.
Maintenance of a colony of transgenic mice.
Hypothesis generation, design and execution of research studies, data collection and interpretation.
Create and submit abstracts to national meetings for presentations.
Manuscript preparation and coordination as well as proposal preparation.
Develop independent research career and grant applications.
