Job Summary

Dr. Camire’s laboratory is interested in understanding the components of the blood coagulation system, how they interface with activated cells, and how disturbances in their function lead to bleeding and thrombosis. The laboratory is also interested in developing therapeutic approaches to mitigate these events which are major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Interests include new therapies for hemophilia and understanding mechanism of inhibitor formation in hemophilia.

A variety of enzymatic, biochemical, and molecular biological techniques are used in the laboratory in order to carry out our specific goals. For example, the following techniques are routinely preformed in the laboratory: modern molecular methods (site-directed mutagenesis, cloning, etc.), tissue culture, protein purification, HPLC, FPLC, SDS-PAGE, ELISA, enzymatic kinetic assays, fluorescence spectroscopy, fluorescence anisotropy measurements, etc.

The postdoctoral fellow (postdoc) will have a terminal degree PhD, MD, MD-PhD, etc. and will, under the direction/guidance of a mentor (Rodney M. Camire, PhD.) assume responsibility for a specific, on-going research project. The postdoc experience will serve to extend, refine and enhance skills necessary for professional and career development, and will enable the individual to broaden his/her scientific background by acquiring new research capabilities. It is expected that this individual will conduct independent scholarly research, and will contribute directly to the overall research goals of the project and the research group. Postdocs will be expected to participate in project planning, recording and interpretation/evaluation of data, and communication of results. Postdocs will also be expected to acquire technical, lab management, and manuscript/grant writing skills; and participate in seminars, lectures, poster sessions and presentations at national meetings. Postdoctoral fellows also may be required to supervise junior lab members, develop new methods and protocols for research, and assist with the development of other research projects in the lab.
