Postdoctoral Researchers

We are looking for talented and motivated individuals, who have already demonstrated the fundamentals of sound science through publication in highly respected journals. Relevant credentials include wet bench training (biochemistry, molecular biology, etc) or computational training (bioinformatics, functional genomics). Projects arise from joint discussions between Dr. Pugh and the postdoctoral scholar. Please send a cover letter and CV to bfp2@psu.edu, for consideration.
