Mitochondrial and Metabolic Homeostasis in Corneal Health and Disease (Postdoc)

A postdoctoral training position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Danielle Robertson, in the Department of Ophthalmology at UT Southwestern Medical Center to study how mitochondrial and metabolic changes underlie pathophysiological changes in mucosal epithelial cells, with a primary focus on corneal and conjunctival epithelia. Our laboratory has several exciting projects related to mitochondrial biology and metabolism, including the effects of hyperglycemia (ie. diabetes), hyperosmolarity (dry eye) and pathogens on mucosal epithelial cell surfaces. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree. Experience in molecular and cellular biology, biochemistry, and/or immunology leading to publication in peer-reviewed journals is recommended. Information on our postdoctoral training program, benefits, and a virtual tour can be found here

Interested individuals should send a CV, statement of interests, and a list of three references to:

Ocular Oncology Research (Postdoc)

A postdoctoral training position is available in the laboratory of Dr. J. William Harbour, in the Department of Ophthalmology at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Our laboratory has a long-term interest in genomic evolution, immune evasion, and metastasis in uveal melanoma, a highly metastatic cancer of the eye. Our laboratory has discovered multiple genomic aberrations associated with metastasis in uveal melanoma, including bi-allelic mutational inactivation of the tumor suppressor BAP1, hemizygous change-of-function mutations in the splicing factor SF3B1, and aberrant expression of the cancer-testis antigen PRAME. We use a variety of techniques in cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, genomics, and epigenetics to elucidate how these aberrations interact with the tumor microenvironment to promote immune evasion and metastasis. The training experience will include the use of next generation sequencing methods such as RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, scRNA-seq, and spatial transcriptomics, as well as cell culture and genetically engineered mouse models. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. and/or M.D. degree. Extensive background in molecular biology, biochemistry, and/or cell biology is required. Experience in mouse experimentation is desired. Evidence of stageappropriate research productivity leading to publication in peer-reviewed journals is desirable.
