POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS – INTRACELLULAR TRAFFICKING
We are looking to add a post-doctoral fellow to our recently established research team at Boston University School of Medicine. Our research is focused on the regulatory mechanisms driving intracellular receptor protein sorting and on understanding how misregulation of these events promotes the development of diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. We are now looking to widen our studies to include the receptor trafficking aspects in insulin response and diabetes. Our studies combine various techniques spanning protein biochemistry, molecular biology and mammalian cell biology, and later stages of the project will likely include animal studies. The successful candidate will be highly motivated to develop and drive his/her project, hard-working and well organized. Previous training in at least some of the techniques we employ is required. Salary according to NIH scale. We are aiming for a start date in spring or early summer 2014 but timing is flexible.
