The Division of Pediatric Pulmonology, Allergy and Sleep Medicine is seeking candidates for a tenure track Assistant/Associate Professor of Pediatrics position to interrogate the molecular mechanisms responsible for the quality control of cystic fibrosis transmembrane-conductance regulator (CFTR) biogenesis by the endoplasmic reticulum using cell culture and mouse models. The goal of this research would be to improve mutant CFTR expression on the plasma membrane and ultimately translating the discoveries of bench research into therapeutic interventions for the treatment of people with CF. The applicant should have experience in CFTR research, epithelial cell culture, mouse models, molecular biology, biochemistry, and exhibit a willingness to collaborate with the current members of the department. The applicant also should have some support from extramural sources.
