Postdoctoral Fellowship – Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders

University of North Carolina

Chapel Hill, NC

Posted 10/23/2023

The Parnell Lab in the Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is seeking a highly motivated and talented postdoc to join the lab to explore the mechanisms and genetics of early developmental alcohol exposure. Our lab uses mouse models of FASD to study basic cellular and molecular mechanisms of alcohol’s effects during early embryonic development, with particular emphasis on mechanisms associated with cell death and intracellular signaling via primary cilia. We also have a strong interest in genetic factors that mediate susceptibility or resilience to prenatal alcohol exposure and use a variety of mouse strains, transgenic mice, transcriptomics, genomics, and other molecular and cellular techniques.

The UNC Bowles Center for Alcohol Studies is one of the premier alcohol research centers in the country with a large and vibrant alcohol research community with a strong track record of training pre- and post-doctoral fellows for future independent careers in academia and other career paths. The UNC Alcohol Center is also funded by a post-doctoral fellowship training grant (T32) from NIAAA.

Interested applicants should contact Dr. Scott Parnell at [email protected] for more information.
