The selected candidates will focus on one or more of the following ongoing projects in the laboratory: One research project, sponsored by the Superfund Research Program (SRP), seeks to identify rat sperm mRNA transcripts and DNA methylation marks that are molecular biomarkers of testicular dysfunction following low--‐level exposure to cell type specific toxicants and mixtures of toxicants. We will translate these findings by examining sperm molecular biomarkers in an epidemiology study of normal men compared to men treated with methotrexate for autoimmune arthritis. Both genome--‐wide molecular approaches and morphometric light microscopy are used in combination to study this interdisciplinary research problem focused on mixtures and male reproductive toxicology. The Brown University Superfund Research Program (SRP), “Toxicant Exposures in Rhode Island: Past, Present, and Future” brings together scientists with interdisciplinary training from different backgrounds to work together in a cooperative and synergistic enterprise (See http://www.brown.edu/Research/SRP/).
A second project sponsored by The Brown University Center to Advance Predictive Biology in response to the release of the landmark report “Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century: A Vision and a Strategy”, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, in 2007, is developing 3--‐dimensional microtissues for in vitro toxicity testing using high throughput confocal imaging and computational systems biology approaches to identify toxicant--‐induced alterations in cellular pathways. These new technologies and bioinformatics tools will help shift the paradigm of toxicity testing, characterize the responsible toxicity pathways, and develop a robust mechanistic explanation of toxicant action.
Successful candidates should have an M.D. or Ph.D. with interest or experience in reproductive biology, toxicology, bioinformatics, image analysis or in vitro techniques. Background training, knowledge and laboratory skills in molecular and cellular biology biochemistry and are required. The initial appointment will be for one year with the intention of extending the appointment if mutually agreeable. Salary is commensurate with NIH guidelines.
Candidates should apply via lnterfolio at https://apply.interfolio.com/39714.
