  • Postdoc Fellow openings in the Center for Translational Medicine at Thomas Jefferson University


    The applicants will perform experiments related to multiple grants-supported projects including four NIH-sponsored research projects in the laboratory. The postdoctoral researchers are expected to study parathyroid hormone (PTH) and PTH receptor roles in bone metabolism and skeletal diseases including osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Ideal candidates should have a solid publication record, and strong cell and molecular skills. Experience with mouse models or mouse surgery is advantageous.
    • Collects and assembles data for any type of oral or written presentation.
    • Independently develops scientific hypotheses related to ongoing work in the laboratory.
    • Independently designs experiments to test hypotheses.
    • Independently carries out or delegates procedures for experiments.
    • Analyzes results of experiments independently.
    • Independently prepares oral and written reports for the P.I. on research to include, but not limited to: coherently and effectively communicating our laboratory research by writing abstracts, manuscripts, grant proposals and data reports for grants and oral presentations with corresponding slide presentation for PI, local and national meetings.
    • Performs routine and more difficult procedures, analyzes data and coherently presents results in the form of presentations, abstracts, manuscripts and the basis for grant writing, preparation and submission.
    Research & Clinical Interests

    Dr. Wang's laboratory is investigating the roles of parathyroid hormone (PTH)/PTH related protein (PTHrP)–activated PTH receptor in musculoskeletal diseases. Current projects include:

    (1) Characterization of bimodal effects of PTH on bone metabolism. The long-term objective is to identify new compounds that can enhance the anabolic effect of PTH or PTHrP for the treatment of osteoporosis.
    (2) Determining whether and how PTHrP plays a pathogenic role in articular cartilage degeneration (osteoarthritis) during aging.
    (3) Characterization of the interaction of PTH receptor with other GPCRs. The purpose of this research will illustrate how PTH receptor coordinates with other GPCRs to maintain musculoskeletal homeostasis.

    The overall mission of my research is to advance knowledge in the fields of GPCR biological and musculoskeletal disease research and translate the scientific discoveries into improved health.


    Ph.D., in structural biology and molecular biology. Previous experience in an academic lab setting preferred.
