Washington University School of Medicine Postdoctoral Position

My laboratory has two major research interests: 1) investigation of molecular mechanisms underlying glioblastoma multiforme cancer stem cell behavior and 2) identification of novel signaling pathways controlling brain development.

 I am particularly focused on ubiquitin-proteasome system-specific mechanisms for both projects.

Washington University School of Medicine consistently ranks in the top 5 medical schools in the U.S.A. and is home to many of the United States' top scientists and physicians. The Department of Neurological Surgery in particular has a rich tradition of clinical and scientific excellence and is highly collaborative with other Departments in the medical center.

MD or PhD with expertise in molecular biology and biochemistry with a preference for new graduates or postdoctoral fellows with 2 or fewer 
years of experience.

Salary and benefits are based upon NIH 2012 guidelines

 and departmental guidelines. For full benefits including health, please see website

Documents required for application

1) CV

2) 3 letters of recommendation and contact information for these references

Due date for application

May 1, 2013
