Postdoctoral Position in Biological Mineralization A postdoctoral position is currently available at The University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine (UPSDM), Pittsburgh, PA to study the regulation of dental enamel formation by extracellular matrix proteins. Studies will primarily focus on the use of a novel knock-in mouse model designed to address the role of amelogenin phosphorylation in guiding the hierarchical formation of the exquisite enamel structure. This work will be carried out in the laboratories of Drs. Elia Beniash and Henry Margolis and will be supported by a new multi-PI NIH grant. Please to submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, and a list of three references to Dr. Elia Beniash via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The successful candidate will have a doctoral degree in the STEM field, prior laboratory experience, and an interest in conducting mechanistic studies in the field of biomineralization. Experience in the chemistry and biology of biological mineralization processes and mineralized tissue characterization, as well as experience with mouse models, is highly desirable. UPSDM provides an outstanding research environment dedicated to oral and craniofacial biology.
