  • Postdoctoral Position Available to study Meniscus Mechanotransduction & Tissue Repair

    A Postdoctoral Associate position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Amy McNulty in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Duke University to study Meniscus Mechanotransduction and Tissue Repair.

    The Postdoctoral Associate must hold a PhD or equivalent doctorate. Salaries will follow general NIH Post-doc guidelines and benefits will be provided. PhDs graduated within the last 1-2 years are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate would have a biomedical engineering background and experience performing wet lab experiments. The Postdoctoral Associate is expected to conduct independent research activities under the guidance of a Dr. Amy McNulty in preparation for a full time academic or research career. They will work on identifying critical mechanotransduction pathways in meniscus and modulate these pathways to promote meniscus repair and prevent osteoarthritis development. This is a collaborative project with Dr. George Truskey in the Duke Biomedical Engineering Department.

    Expectations: The Postdoctoral Associate will be responsible for fluid flow experiments, cell and tissue culture, computational modeling, calcium signaling, molecular biology, biochemistry, and mechanical testing. This project will also involve an animal model experiment. He/she will focus on project planning, performing and troubleshooting experiments, data analysis, interpretation, presentation of results, and writing of manuscripts. The Postdoctoral Appointee is expected to publish the results of his or her research or scholarship during the period of the appointment. He/she will have regular meetings with the mentors regarding all facets of research activities and will work closely with other team members.
