Postdoctoral Position, Stony Brook University, NY

Projects in the lab investigate how mutations blocking O-fucosylation of thrombospondin type 1 repeat-containing proteins lead to craniofacial and skeletal abnormalities and hydrocephalus, with a focus on identifying B3GLCT targets affected by the mutation and evaluating the effects of the mutation on the organization of the extracellular matrix and signaling. Candidates should have a strong background in cell or developmental biology with expertise in molecular biology, immunolocalization of proteins, and imaging. For more information and to apply for this position please see Stony Brook University Postdoctoral Associate Job Number 1703064.  In the attachments please include a curriculum vitae and a cover letter with a brief description of your research interests, experience, career goals, and contact information for three references.

Postdoctoral Fellow: University of Washington, Seattle

A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the Giachelli laboratory in the Department of Bioengineering, University of Washington. This fellow is sought to identify molecular and cellular therapeutic targets for vascular calcification in chronic kidney disease and perform preclinical testing in a mouse model of renal insufficiency. The available project incorporates a variety of cellular and molecular biological approaches (cell culture, gene expression and functional assays, immunoprecipitation, BRET assays etc.), tissue-specific genetic targeting mouse models, histology and tissue analysis. There will be many opportunities to benefit from the rich and diverse scientific environment of University of Washington and through the group established collaborations.  A background in nephrology, vascular biology or matrix biology is highly recommended. Experience with mouse surgery and in vivo experimental design, and protein-protein interaction is preferred.  Ability to work in a team, generate publications, contribute to grants and progress reports, and maintain meticulous records is required. Competitive salary and benefits offered.  For more information, click here.

Academic Joint Departments-Open Rank- Molecular & Cellular Pathology Position 

The Department of Pathology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), in collaboration with the NCI designated UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center, is rapidly expanding its active research program in the area of cancer pathobiology. Applications are invited for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level (PhD, MD, MD/PhD) depending on experience, research and scholarly accomplishments. Although applications in all areas of cancer pathobiology research are welcome, specific areas of interest include: basic and translational research in ovarian, breast or GI cancers, research focused on the link between obesity, metabolism, bioenergetics and cancer, cancer and bone, and cancer epidemiology (molecular focus preferred.)  Read more about this opportunity and how to apply.

Two Postdoctoral Fellows at the University of California San Francisco

Project 1:
Understand the molecular processes underlying collagen biosynthesis and secretion. The goal of the project is to define and characterize important molecular interactions that are involved in the assembly, intracellular trafficking, and secretion of collagen heterotrimers. The successful applicant will use targeted and systematic genome-wide functional screens (CRISPRi/a) and small molecule screens to identify interactions that might represent therapeutic targets.
Project 2:
Identify the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in neural crest cell migration and differentiation in the context of ocular development. The goal of the project is to gain a better understanding of the cellular pathways implicated in ocular development and how misregulation of these pathways can lead to congenital glaucoma. The successful applicant will use comparative single-cell transcriptomics and advanced microscopy of genetically labeled cell populations to understand how mutations in type IV collagens contribute to human ocular disease.

Post-doctoral Senior Scientists, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
Two post-Doctoral research fellow or Senior Scientist positions are immediately available in the Ramirez Lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (NYC) for highly motivated candidates. The first position is to investigate the molecular pathophysiology of aortic aneurysm in mouse modes of Marfan syndrome with the intent of identifying and testing efficacious new therapies. The second position is to characterize the mechanisms whereby fibrillin molecules expressed in tendon and perichondrium regulate postnatal bone growth.

Post-doctoral Fellow for Fibrosis and Cancer Therapy Development, University of Alabama Birmingham
This position is funded to study the identification and mechanistic testing of lead compounds for applications in cancer, immunotherapy, and fibrosis. The candidate will be involved in functional screening of small molecules using both ELISA and cell-based tests, protein purification, development of other cell based tests, and testing of these compounds in rodent models of fibrosis and certain cancers. Some experience in immunoassays is also desirable. Candidates must have a recent Ph.D. in biochemistry, cell biology, or immunology preferred.  For more information click here.
