Careers, Pamela Dalton

“The first time I came to Monell, I was struck by the spirit that pervades the place. It was thrilling to see scientists 20 and 30 years into their research careers bubbling over with energy, excitement and ideas. I was — and remain — enchanted by the opportunities for cross-fertilization.”

Current Positions

Postdoctoral Fellow

The Monell Center is hiring Postdoctoral Fellows funded by an institution-wide training grant (T32) from the National Institutes of Health. The goal of this grant is to provide interdisciplinary training in the chemical senses (i.e., taste, smell, and chemesthesis) for scientists coming from a wide range of disciplines. This includes providing the tools necessary for trainees to gain independence: a strong scientific environment, committed faculty mentors, and didactic course work in appropriate areas.

Part-time Research Assistant: Reed Lab

A part time laboratory research assistant (10-15 hours per week) is needed for a project on worldwide human taste perception. The position is in the Reed laboratory at the Monell Chemical Senses Center and is open early September 2021.

Postdoctoral Fellow: Jiang Lab

Experience with molecular biology and small animal surgery techniques is desired but not mandatory. A background in chemosensory research is not required. Stipend is in accordance with NIH standards. This position is supported by NIH and industry grants. Interested applicants should provide a cover letter, a curriculum vitae and the contact information for three references.
