 Postdoctoral Position in

HIV Pathogenomic
Temple University School of Medicine



Highly motivated postdoctoral candidates for HIV research at the host-pathogen interface are being sought by the Department of Microbiology and Immunology and the Center for Substance Abuse Research of the Temple University School of Medicine. The postdoctoral researcher will be encouraged to lead independent research on the pathogenomic and immune control of viruses, with particular emphasis on the understanding of immunomodulation effects of substance abuse. Depending on the qualifications and capabilities of the successful applicant, opportunities also exist for involvement in proposal writing, supervision of graduate students, and development of new lines of research.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. with expertise in molecular virology and/or functional genomics. Of particular interest are candidates who have a strong interest in viral infectious disease research and who possess excellent organizational skills and effective oral and written communication skills. A working knowledge of bioinformatics-based analyses is preferred, but not required. Please send a CV, a letter describing your research experience/future interests, and contact information for at least three references to Dr. Mario P.S. Chin at tusm.jobs@temple.edu. Indicate “Postdoc” in the email subject line. The salary will be commensurate with experience according to NIH postdoctoral stipend levels.

Temple University School of Medicine is an equal opportunity, equal access, affirmative action employer and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities.

  Postdoctoral Position in

Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS)
Temple University College of Science and Technology



The Temple University Fault, Stress and Geothermal Research Group invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow to participate in a study to monitor and develop Enhanced Geothermal Systems (EGS). The work will involve applying geodesy and/or analyzing InSAR scenes and seismicity to develop numerical models of subsurface deformations in response to pumping activity. The specific focus depends on the background and interests of the successful applicant, who will be mentored by experts in each field.

Up to three years of support, including salary, benefits, and research funds, are available. The position is located at Temple University and includes extensive collaboration with the University of Wisconsin, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and ORMAT, a geothermal operator. The science team will be composed of at least six individuals. A solid quantitative background in geodetics, seismology, or mechanics/poroelasticity is required as well as competency in numerical analysis. Competitive salaries and benefit packages will be offered.

Applicants should send a CV, transcript, description of doctoral research, list of publications, and three letters of reference to Dr. Nicholas C. Davatzes at davatzes@temple.edu. For additional information, see http://astro.temple.edu/~davatzes/. Evaluation of applicants will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Temple University is an equal opportunity, equal access, affirmative action employer fully committed to achieving a diverse work force.

Pharmacology and Neuroscience

Temple University School of Medicine



A postdoctoral position is available in the Center for Substance Abuse Research at Temple University's School of Medicine to carry out interdisciplinary research on drugs of abuse, including opioids, psychostimulants, cannabinoids, and nicotine. The Fellow will have the opportunity to work with faculty in several basic science departments, including Anatomy and Cell Biology, Microbiology and Immunology, Pharmacology, Physiology, and Psychology. Examples of research interests include the molecular pharmacology of opioid and cannabinoid receptors; molecular and behavioral effects of opioids, psychostimulants, cannabinoids, and nicotine; neurobiology of addictive behaviors; cross-talk between opioid and chemokine receptors; novel opioid analgesics with peripheral actions; neuroprotective effects of cannabinoid ligands; opioid effects on HIV infectivity; and effects of drugs of abuse on immune function, body temperature, and analgesia. Detailed research program descriptions can be found at www.temple.edu/medicine/csar.

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. and/or M.D. with experience in pharmacology, neurobiology, cell biology, immunology, or molecular biology. Please send a CV, statement of research interests, and names of three references to Dr. Ellen Unterwald, Temple University School of Medicine, Center for Substance Abuse Research, 3420 N. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19140 or ellen.unterwald@temple.edu.
