Open Faculty Position
The Department of Physiology at Emory University School of Medicine seeks outstanding applicants to fill a tenure-track faculty position at the level of Assistant, Associate or Full Professor in Neuroscience to complement our broad interests in neuroinflammation and neuroimmunology, developmental neurobiology, neuroscience, ion transport and spinal cord physiology. Deadline for applications is October 31st, 2017.
Physiomics as the interdisciplinary bridge between revolutionary cellular 'omic' approaches and organismal next-level approaches
Technological developments have revolutionized high throughput profiling of cellular expression patterns and their dynamics. The emergent fields of genomics, proteomics, lipidomics, and metabolomics now catalog cellular phenotypes and leverage computational approaches to relate expression dynamics to alterations and function that uniquely identify and differentiate cell types.
While the emergent field of Systems Biology attempts to tackle the overwhelming complexity of the measurable 'interactomics' in cellular expression dynamics, the field of physiology aims to synthesize an understanding of the functional contribution of various specialized cell types - themselves assembling into highly complex functional units known as organ systems.
