Inhibitor design and testing on cancer cells for epigenetic targets

A position for a postdoctoral fellow  is available immediately in the Vern L. Schramm Laboratory at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. We study enzymatic transition states and use that information for design of transition state analogue drug candidates. Methyltransferase tragets of epigenetic control provide a current focus toward the control of cancers. The postdoctoral fellow will be involved in the discovery and analysis of transition state therapeutic strategies for the treatment of cancers. The postdoctoral fellow will join an interdisciplinary lab operating at the interface of chemistry, biology and translational science, with a focus on drug design and development.  Further information about our research can be found at 


Preferred candidates will have a strong chemistry background with experience in enzymology and cell culture. This laboratory has a strong record of placing appropriately motivated and talented postdoctoral fellows into academic positions or positions of research leadership at major pharmaceutical companies.

Albert Einstein College of Medicine is located in New York in a scenic Bronx campus that includes comfortable, affordable housing in an area rich with recreation and entertainment. The scientific environment provides outstanding research training opportunities.

Applicants should provide, a CV and a cover letter justifying their suitability and interest to the position, publications list and contact details of three references for attention of Dr. Vern L. Schramm (
