Postdoctoral Fellowship in Environmental Pathology
Brown University

The NIEHS-funded Training Program in Environmental Pathology at Brown
University invites applicants for a postdoctoral research fellowship. This
is an interdisciplinary training program that applies the tools of
biochemistry, molecular biology, and cell biology to study the pathogenesis
of cancer, reproductive and neurologic toxicity, and stress, altered immune
responses, and early pregnancy loss related to environmental exposure. This
training program provides opportunities for teaching experience,
grantsmanship workshops, and career development activities. Trainees are
expected to have a MD or PhD degree in biology or chemistry and must be a US
citizen or permanent resident. Commitment to a research career in
environmental pathology is essential. Research space will be provided in
newly renovated laboratories with modern core facilities for genomics,
proteomics, transgenic mice, molecular pathology, cell imaging, flow
cytometry, and a human tumor bank.

Research mentors: Jorge Albina (inflammation and tissue repair), Christine
Biron (stress and innate immunity), Kim Boekelheide (reproductive
toxicology), Suzanne de la Monte (neurodegenerative disease), A. Ray
Frackelton (signaling pathways in cancer), Douglas Hixson (stem cells and
liver carcinogenesis), Agnes B. Kane (toxicology of asbestos and
nanofibers), James Padbury and Surendra Sharma (stress, nutritional
deprivation, and early pregnancy loss), Nancy Thompson (molecular mechanisms
of liver carcinogenesis), Anatoly Zhitkovich (metal toxicology and
