Postdoctoral Fellow positions are available in the Postdoctoral Fellowships Available in the Division of Genetics.

Dr. Marni Falk’s research laboratory at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute was established in 2006 and is focused in researching the mechanisms underlying disease, and potential novel therapies, for mitochondrial respiratory chain disease. The laboratory uses human cell, C. elegans, zebrafish, and mouse models for this purpose. We have a position open immediately for a post-doctoral fellow to join the group to investigate the therapeutic mechanisms, efficacy, and toxicity of several new classes of pharmacologic agents in both cell and animal models of mitochondrial disease.

Prior experience is highly desirable in C. elegans and human cell culture, working with pharmacologic agents, and standard molecular laboratory investigations including gene expression profiling, cell sorting analyses, and western blot analyses. The successful applicant will be a team player, work independently but with regular communication with the PI and study team, have strong data analysis and writing skills, and be able to make a 1-2 year commitment to this research program.

Postdoctoral fellows at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia receive mentored training in a rich scientific environment and conduct independent as well as collaborative research.
