Our lab is located within the Division of Rhinology in the Department or Otorhinolaryngology. More about our lab’s research, equipment and resources, and recent publications by students and postdocs, can be found at www.robleelab.com
The postdoc will work closely with the PI and other lab members and receive training in live-cell imaging and other techniques as needed, potentially including measurements of calcium, nitric oxide, pH, ciliary beat frequency, fluid secretion, phagocytosis, and/or imaging of fluorescent protein biosensors. The postdoc will also be expected to independently or collaboratively develop or learn new techniques as required by the project. Opportunities for professional development (grant writing, review writing, collaborations, conferences, etc.) will be encouraged and supported. Salary and benefit information (based on NIH NRSA stipend levels) and information about postdoctoral policies at Penn are outlined on the Biomedical Postdoctoral Programs website.
A PhD in a biological science (cell biology, molecular biology, immunology, physiology, etc.), with demonstration of successful completion of thesis project. Experience in cell culture, biochemistry, and/or imaging is highly desirable, but not required. Communication skills (reading, writing, speaking), enthusiasm, and good interpersonal skills are essential. We encourage individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, and individuals from socially, culturally, economically, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds to apply.
