Job Description


Spacer Image
A postdoctoral position is available immediately for a highly motivated scientist interested in characterizing the functional impact of gene mutations.

The UNC Catalyst for Rare Diseases in the Eshelman School of Pharmacy is a newly established research group committed to seeking greater scientific understanding of diseases caused by genetic mutations.

This is a tremendous opportunity to join an interdisciplinary collaborative team that is committed to improving the health and well-being of rare disease patients. In addition to driving the science at the bench, the fellow will interact directly with patients and patient group or foundation representatives, thereby providing a human face to the research work. Ultimately, it is expected that the fellow will become recognized as a key source of knowledge and tools for that specific rare disease and be able to initiate and drive independent research programs.
