Postdoctoral Research Scholar Position in Circadian Clock and Genotoxic Stress Laboratory at North Carolina State University, Raleigh (Research Triangle Park), NC.

An exciting Postdoctoral Research Scholar position is immediately available in the laboratory of Dr. Shobhan Gaddameedhi within the Department of Biological Sciences and the interdisciplinary Center for Human Health and the Environment (CHHE) at North Carolina State University. CHHE is a NIEHS funded Environmental Health Science (EHS) Core Center. Through CHHE, the Gaddameedhi lab has access to world-renowned interdisciplinary research cores including the Systems Technology Core, Comparative Pathology Core, Integrative Health Science Facility Core, and Community Engagement Core. In addition, the trainees in Gaddameedhi lab have access for a strong Career Development Core which is coordinated with a robust Pilot Project Program that supports cutting-edge, collaborative, and multidisciplinary EHS projects to enhance research success and impact of the trainee’s career.

The postdoctoral research scholar will focus on molecular and preclinical research in the areas of 1) molecular biology, understanding the role of circadian clock genes in determining the timing of genotoxicity, immunotoxicity and cellular sensitivity to emerging environmental contaminants and UV-DNA damage response signaling mechanisms. 2) circadian clock and cancer biology, understanding the mechanisms of how circadian clock-disruption influences genomic instability, oxidative stress, inflammation, skin carcinogenesis and the radiation/immunotherapy efficacy. Additionally, these projects provide leadership opportunities to train students and to collaborate with translational scientists who provide access to human tissue biopsies.
