Postdoctoral positions are available to study (1) the mechanism of cellular oxidative responses regulated by the transcription factor Nrf2, and (2) the protective role of Nrf2 in arsenic-induced toxicity and carcinogenicity using cultured mammalian cells and mice as model systems.
We are seeking self-motivated and hard working Ph.D.s with training in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, or pathology. Previous experience in using knockout mice, in arsenic study, in proteomics, and in the Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) technique is preferable. Please send your curriculum vitae and the contact information of three references to: Dr. Donna D. Zhang, e-mail: These positions will be open until qualified candidates are found.


We are seeking outstanding graduate students with passion for science.  Candidates have to be highly motivated, hard working, and have a primary interest in signal transduction and disease prevention. We are using biochemistry, molecular, and cellular approaches to understand detail mechanisms of a cellular anti-oxidant response that protects cells from damages caused by toxicants and carcinogens. The knowledge obtained from our research is translated into drug discovery. We are currently screening effective drugs targeting oxidative-stress related diseases. For the active research projects in Dr. Zhang’s lab, please see research description. If interested in joining our lab, please contact Dr. Donna D. Zhang, e-mail:
