Postdoctoral Research Positions


  • Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunity in Dr. Paul Snyder's Laboratory at Purdue University
    Posted: SPRING 2014

    Our laboratory is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow who is interested in identifying molecular markers of vasculitis using a spontaneous animal model.  Our current research focuses on two directions:  1. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) for identifying disease susceptibility genes and; 2. Association of predisposed genetic loci to the pathogenesis of vascular lesions. The long term goal of our research is to develop a genetic biomarker of susceptibility and to establish protocols for genotyping formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissues samples, as they are a vast resource of annotated samples and represent highly desirable and informative materials for a molecular understanding of disease phenotypes.  Our research uses integrative approaches such as next-generation sequencing, microarray and bioinformatics analysis, spontaneous animal models and novel molecular technologies.

    Purdue University is an internationally recognized research university; it provides a great environment for both low cost of living and cutting-edge scientific research. The Department of Comparative Pathobiology and College of Veterinary Medicine are also an ideal home to accommodate comparative studies of human and animal diseases. The extensive interactions between our group and other faculty members nurture novel research ideas and opportunities.

    For postdoctoral fellows, qualified applicants should have an advance degree (PhD, MD, DVM etc.) in molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, genetics/genomics, medicine or other related fields, and have a good record of scientific publications. Previous research experiences in genetic analysis, genetic mutations, or animal models of human disease are preferred. The successful candidate is expected to be highly motivated and to work independently. Interested candidates should send their CV, representative publications and names of three references to Paul W. Snyder by email (snyderp@purdue.edu ) or by regular postal mail to: Dr Paul W. Snyder, VPTH 121, Department of Comparative Pathobiology, Purdue University, 725 Harrison Street, West Lafayette, IN, 47907, USA.
