Job Summary

The Division of Pulmonary Medicine and The Center for Lung Research at CHOP are dedicated to understanding the mechanisms underlying lung diseases and developing new strategies to prevent and treat these disorders.  Studies in the Young laboratory encompass a spectrum of basic and patient-oriented research in interstitial lung diseases (ILD) and rare lung diseases and lung biology. Genetic mouse models and in vitro systems are utilized to understand the cell biology and mechanisms of ILD pathogenesis.  Longitudinal research cohorts of patients with rare lung diseases provide biospecimens for genetic discovery and translational studies, with a goal of applying that knowledge towards the development of therapies.   

 In close collaboration with Dr. Young, the post-doctoral fellow will investigate the cell biology of genetic and developmental lung diseases, focusing on epithelial and fibroblast biology.  The postdoctoral fellow will play a vital role in the day to day operations of the laboratory and be expected to make primary contributions to preparation of manuscripts and grants. Applicants must have a doctoral degree in a relevant field, such as Biochemistry, Cellular and/or Molecular Biology, Physiology or Pharmacology and a strong background in techniques relevant to these fields.
