Medical University of South Carolinaポスドク募集

Postdoctoral positions in developmental neurobiology and pathophysiology

Charleston, South Carolina
Salary commensurate with qualifications and experience

Postdoctoral scholar positions in neuroscience research are available in an established laboratory that is newly relocated to Medical University of South Carolina. The lab uses mouse genetics and physiological assessment to study several signaling pathways in peripheral nervous system development, coupled with molecular and biochemical approaches to explore underlying mechanisms. Specific ongoing projects address neural progenitor cell migration and fate specification (Tan 2019, submitted; Poltavski, in preparation), axon guidance and refinement (Poltavski 2019 eLife, PMID: 30735130; Manousiouthakis 2014 Nature Commun, PMID: 24875861), and synapse formation and elimination (Tan, in preparation), all of which are relevant to human congenital neurological disorders. Charleston is a vibrant, progressive and inclusive city with a moderate cost of living, tourist attractions, and abundant housing options.

Candidate should contact Dr. Takako Makita directly by email (makita@musc.edu) to discuss these opportunities.

Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Prof. Kodi Ravichandran at University of Virginia (UVA)

University of Virginia, School of Medicine Kodi Ravichandran研究室においてPostdoctoral Fellowを募集しています。

Kodi Ravichandran研究室では死んだ細胞の除去機構を中心に研究を行っています。
体中では古くなった細胞や傷付いた細胞がアポトーシスを起こしており、これらの細胞はマクロファージなどの貪食細胞や近接した上皮細胞・線維芽細胞などによって効率よく除かれています。反対に、貪食機能が低下すると死んだ細胞の蓄積による過度な炎症の誘導から、様々な疾患の原因となります(自己免疫疾患, アテローム性動脈硬化、超大腸炎、網膜変性や腎臓障害など)。Postdoc候補者には、RNA-seqやプロテオミクスを用いて死んだ細胞の新規・除去シグナルの探索と、また、mouse modelを用いてクリアランス機構の破綻と様々な疾病との関係を解明して頂きます。

バイオインフォマッティックス等、大量のデータを視覚的に表現する技能をお持ちの方を探しております。興味のある方はCV (PDF)を添付して下記メールアドレスまで連絡して下さい。ビザの取得や、アメリカ生活のセットアップは、協力致しますのでご安心ください。

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Postdoctral Position

A post-doctoral position is available immediately in the Wei lab at Dept. of Pathology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School. The lab’s major focus is on understanding how aberrant cell signaling pathways including ubiquitination and phosphorylation events drive tumorigenesis. More specifically, the lab explores mechanistically how aberrancies in Ubiquitin E3 ligase APC (Gao et at Nature Cell Biology 11: 397, 2009; Wan et al, Molecular Cell 44: 721, 2011; Wan et al, Developmental Cell 29:377, 2014; Wan et al, Cancer Discovery 7:424, 2017) and SCF or other Cullin-based E3 ligases (Inuzuka et al, Cancer Cell 18:147, 2010; Inuzuka et al, Nature 471:104, 2011; Gao et al, Molecular Cell 44: 290, 2011; Inuzuka et al, Cell 150: 179, 2012; Gan et al, Molecular Cell 59: 917, 2015; Shimizu et al, Science Signaling 2017; Dai et al, Nature Medicine 2017) activities contribute to cell cycle regulation and subsequent tumor formation, as well as how PTEN/Akt/!
mTOR signaling pathway governs tumorigenesis (Liu et al, Nature 508: 541, 2014; Liu et al, Cancer Discovery 5:1194, 2015; Guo et al, Science 353:929, 2016; Wang et al, Nature 545:365). We recently also defined cell cycle-dependent regulation of PD-L1 that provides the rationale for combination therapy of CDK4/6 inhibitor with PD-1 blockade (Zhang et al, Nature 553:91-95, 2018). Future projects in the lab engage the use of biochemistry, molecular biology and genetic approaches, cell culture techniques and potentially mouse modeling. Therefore, energetic applicants with strong experimental background in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology and/or genetics are encouraged to apply.
