Postdoctoral Position in Molecular Pharmacology
Postdoctoral Fellow positions are immediately available in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Our research employs comprehensive systems including cellular, subcellular, molecular, genetic, engineering and animal (mice and rats) approaches to identify new mechanisms and new interventional strategies for metabolic diseases and complications, such as diabetes, obesity, and the related cardiovascular and neurodegenerative disorders. The involved projects represent cutting-edge research that integrates neuroscience and metabolic physiology, and intensively analyze the brain (particularly the hypothalamus) and several peripheral organs (skeletal muscle, liver, fat, pancreatic islets) of animals. Successful candidates will have excellent opportunities of characterizing our newly created genetic mouse models (transgenics and knockouts). Some background of our research can be obtained from our recent publications: Cell, 119: 285-98, 2004; Nature Medicine, 11: 183-90, 2005; Cell, 135: 61-73, 2008.
For postdoctoral fellow positions, candidates must hold a PhD degree or equivalent, and possess strong independent research abilities with ambitious scientific interests, self-motivation and the ability to work effectively with a team. They will lead exciting, high-impact research projects (funded by the National Institutes of Health and American Diabetes Association). The candidates are expected to have strong background and abilities either in molecular biology (advanced techniques in DNA constructing and DNA/protein analyses) and cell biology (particularly stem cell-related experience) or in animal physiology/pathology (rodent surgeries, immunostaining, behavior tests). We emphasize overall research abilities and potentials rather than specific techniques.
Successful applicants will be offered a generous salary and benefits, in addition to being a member of a high-quality research team and collaborative research environment.
Applicants should email his/her CV, personal research statement, and the contact information of three references to:
