  • Postdoc Position - Musculoskeletal Biology and Osteoarthritis

    Position: Postdoctoral Fellow/ Associate Research Scientist
    Mentor: Tim Griffin, Ph.D.
    Program: Free Radical Biology and Aging
    Institute: Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF)

    Musculoskeletal Biology and Osteoarthritis Research
    We are seeking applicants for an NIH-funded postdoctoral position to study
    the effects of aging and obesity on the development of osteoarthritis. Our
    lab supports an interdisciplinary environment to study how biophysical
    signals regulate musculoskeletal function via activation/deactivation of
    metabolic and inflammatory pathways in animal and cell model systems. We
    work closely with other members of the Free Radical Biology and Aging
    Program to understand how the downstream production of mitochondrial-derived
    pro- and anti-oxidant responses function as signaling mechanisms in health
    and disease.

    Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D., M.D., or comparable doctoral degree
    at the time of the appointment. Must be highly motivated and detail oriented
    with strong record-keeping skills. Must be able to multi-task and problem
    solve. Candidates are expected to work independently as well as in a group
    setting that involves interdisciplinary interactions with faculty, staff,
    and students.

    A background in musculoskeletal biology, especially in metabolism,
    inflammation, or redox signaling is highly desirable. The ideal candidate
    will have a good record of publications and excellent communication and
    laboratory skills. Preference will be given to candidates with strong
    analytical skills. The Free Radical Biology and Aging Program is committed
    to training staff, students, and postdoctoral fellows for scientific career
    advancement. Candidates seeking a dynamic training environment are
    encouraged to apply.

    OMRF ( is an independent, nonprofit biomedical research institute
    dedicated to understanding and developing more effective treatments for
    human disease. OMRF is adjacent to the campus of the University of Oklahoma
    Health Sciences Center (OUHSC) in Oklahoma City.

    Interested persons should send 1) a current CV, 2) a letter of interest
    describing how this position fits into your research interests and future
    career plans, and 3) names and contact information of three references via
    email to: Tim M. Griffin, Ph.D., []
    We offer attractive salaries and comprehensive employee benefits.
