Immunology, Cellular and Molecular Biology, and/or Biochemistry

University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan

Position Description:
The University of Michigan Department of Surgery is seeking a post-doc researcher for the Research laboratory of Dr. Benjamin Levi.  The Research Fellow would be joining a basic and translational laboratory funded by the NIH and DOD that consists of post-doctoral fellows, medical students, technicians and a research scientist supervised by Dr. Benjamin Levi.  Currently we focus on extremity trauma including fracture healing, heterotopic ossification, muscle fibrosis and burn injury.  We are committed to identifying novel diagnostic and treatment modalities to improve the lives of civilian trauma patients and combat casualties.

We welcome talented and committed candidates with recent Ph.D. in Immunology, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, or other relevant branches of biological sciences to join our team.  The Fellow should have a strong foundation in immunology, molecular and cell biology, histologic analyses and flow cytometry.
The duration of the position can be 2 or 3 years.

To Apply:
Interested candidates should submit CV, a brief statement of research interests in a cover letter, and three references to Dr. Benjamin Levi.

Mission of the Burn/Wound and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory:  As burn and general reconstructive surgeons, we see and treat the problems of extremity trauma first-hand and believe current diagnostic and treatment strategies are inadequate.  We hope that the research we perform will these findings to other aberrant wound healing challenges.
