Shift: Days

Employment Status: Regular - Full Time 

Job Summary

The Sengupta lab studies the effect of circadian disruption on lung health at different stages of life, using different models for the same. We are currently investigating mechanisms by which circadian rhythms influence and modify lung inflammation and airway hyper-reactivity in an influenza model. To approach this problem, we have been/will use various tissue specific and conditional circadian knock-out models as well as classic circadian disruption models. Further, we are interested in studying the effect of early life exposures on the development and function of the circadian system

Our close proximity to some of the best circadian labs at University of Pennsylvania provides an outstanding scientific environment and abundant opportunities for resource pooling.

We are looking for hardworking and enthusiastic postdoctoral researchers to join our team. Experience in circadian biology is not a necessity. Experience in basic molecular biology is needed; other skills in immunology will be an advantage but not necessary. PhD, MD or MD/PhD required.
