Postdoctoral Postdoc Position. at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill

University of North Carolina Chapel Hill has an opening postdoctoral associate position in physiology. Applicants should apply as soon as possible.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and disability in the Western world, and blood coagulation abnormalities contribute to the pathophysiology of almost every disease, including cancer, infection, and autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine in the laboratory of Dr. Alisa Wolberg at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The Wolberg Lab is part of UNC's internationally-recognized Center for Thrombosis and Hemostasis in the McAllister Heart Institute. Research in the Wolberg Lab focuses on cellular, biochemical, and biophysical mechanisms that contribute to blood coagulation and coagulopathies. The successful applicant will study (patho)physiologic mechanisms that mediate arterial and venous thrombosis, including cellular functions, plasma clotting factor expression and activity, and modifying activities that influence hemostatic phenotype in clotting factor deficiencies. The three coequal missions of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine are to: 1) provide exceptional, comprehensive, clinically effective and cost effective pathology and laboratory medicine services to UNC HealthCare patients; 2) teach clinical and scientific concepts of pathology and laboratory medicine, and mechanisms of disease to a wide variety of learners, including medical students, postdoctoral residents, MD fellows, PhD graduate students, and undergraduate students; and 3) advance the practice of pathology and laboratory medicine, and the knowledge of diseases and disease mechanisms through innovative research spanning the spectrum from basic to translational to clinical. The Department of Pathology and Lab Medicine performs anatomic and clinical diagnostic tests on both an inpatient and an outpatient basis, and performs autopsies, when requested by clinicians. The Department has a MD Residency Training Program in the Office of Graduate Medical Education. In the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department is responsible for the teaching of undergraduate level courses. In the Graduate School, the department has a graduate program in experimental pathology which offers both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. This department is devoted to research in many diverse areas of expertise. Many of the research initiatives are nationally and internationally known, and the Chair is dedicated to further expansion of the breadth of the research endeavors. Most research is wholly managed and funded by contracts and grants within the Department.
