Postdoctoral Position in Laboratory of Pamela Stanley
A POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP is available in Pamela Stanley's laboratory at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. A major focus of the laboratory is identifying specific roles for individual sugars or glycans in Notch signaling. The Stanley laboratory has previously shown that O-fucose glycans are essential for mammalian development beyond mid-gestation, and the O-fucose glycan in the Notch ligand binding domain is required for optimal ligand binding and T cell development. Various mutant mice have been developed in order to determine specific roles for the three mammalian Fringe enzymes in T cell development, to identify novel GDP-Fucose transporters required in Notch signaling, and to define biological roles for the EGF-specific O-GicNAc transferase EOGT. Publications from the laboratory can be viewed at: http://www.ncbi.nim.nih.gov/pubmed?term=Stanley P Einstein.
Recent PhD graduates are preferred. Qualified individuals should have strong practical expertise in molecular and cell biology, experience with mouse models and first author publications in peer-reviewed, English language journals. Candidates with outstanding credentials may be eligible for a Harry Eagle Fellowship http://www.einstein.yu.edu/departments/cell-biology/harry-eagle-scholar/ Ability to work independently, demonstrated creativity and high motivation are expected.
The Department of Cell Biology has a strong core of postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, who work in diverse areas of development, cell biology and cancer biology in mice, flies and man. The Department is highly interactive, meeting weekly for work-in-progress seminars, and biweekly for a journal club and to host an invited outside seminar speaker.
