The Melkani lab is actively seeking talented postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and other researchers (research assistants and research associates) on several projects. The areas of study include sleep and circadian biology, cardiovascular biology, muscle physiology/muscle metabolism, and protein misfolding/aggregation biology particularly using Drosophila or other genetic models. 

Postdoctoral candidates must have a Ph.D. or MD degree, and for graduate students and other researcher positions, a BS/MS degree is required. Strong background in genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, or physiology is required. Experience in genomics and transcriptomics is preferred. 

Contact me at gmelkani@uab.edu if you want to be part of any of these exciting projects.
