美国威斯康辛医学院的药理学和毒理学和药物发现中心博士后职位
文章来源:知识人网       更新时间:2017年12月04日

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH) and the National Science Foundation (NSF), a postdoc is an individual who has received a doctoral degree (or equivalent) and is engaged in a temporary and defined period of mentored advanced research training to enhance the professional skills and research independence needed to pursue his or her chosen career path. In addition, according to the National Postdoc Association (NPA), Postdoctoral appointees can pursue basic, clinical or translational projects so long as their primary effort is devoted toward their own scholarship. Postdocs are essential to the scholarly mission of the mentor and host institution, and thus are expected to have the freedom to publish the results of their scholarship. 

Medical College of Wisconsin Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology is dedicated to quality biomedical research. Department research and training activities are supported through multiple federal and non-federal grants, and an NIH postdoctoral training cardiovascular training grant. 

The Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology and Drug Discovery Center at the Medical College of Wisconsin is seeking to hire a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join our team. The applicant must be willing and able to work fast-paced, translational discovery and development research projects spanning multiple disciplines. This is primarily a research position requiring various types of laboratory work, including cell culture, measurement of intracellular signaling molecules, basic molecular biology and protein chemistry techniques, animal handling, dosing and pharmacology experiments, and other procedures as needed. 

Characteristics of a postdoctoral appointment: 

It is expected that postdocs at MCW, with the assistance of their supervisor, will: 
 

  • Transition to career independence through the development of professional skills that enable the postdoc to actively pursue a career of his/her own choosing. 
     
  • Be supervised by at least one senior scholar who actively promotes the postdoc's professional development. 
     
  • Establish an individual development plan (IDP) that incorporates equally the postdoc's career and training goals and the mentor's research goals. 
     
  • Pursue basic, clinical, or translational projects so long as effort is focused primarily on research. 
     
  • Publish results of the postdoc's research and scholarship during their appointment. 
     
  • The postdoctoral appointment is temporary by nature, the aggregate amount of time spent as a postdoc is recommended to not exceed five years (not including family medical leave or maternity/paternity leave). 
     
  • As postdocs are important members of the host institution's community, appropriate levels of compensation, health care, and other benefits commensurate with their essential status should be afforded, independent of the postdoc's source of funding.
