Brown University Superfund Research Program (SRP): Toxicant Exposures in Rhode Island: Past, Present, and Future

A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available immediately at the Brown University Alpert Medical School in Providence RI in the laboratory of Dr. Kim Boekelheide (Professor of Medical Sciences at Brown University, Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine). The candidate, sponsored by the Superfund Research Program (SRP), will focus on a research project that 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 brown.edu/Research/SRP). The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences provides support to SRPs for interdisciplinary research programs on Superfund-related chemicals. (See niehs.nih.gov/research/supported/SRP)

The successful candidate should have an M.D. or Ph.D. with interest or experience in reproductive biology, toxicology, and bioinformatics. 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 to three years if mutually agreeable.

Brown University is an EEO/AA employer and invites applications from women and minorities. Candidates should send a personal statement, curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation to apply.interfolio.com
