Position#:04220018
Title: POSTDOCTORAL POSITION, Laboratory of Dr. Pamela Stanley, Albert Einstein College Medicine, New York

JOB DESCRIPTION:


A NIH-funded POSTDOCTORAL position is available in the laboratories of Pamela Stanley and Leonard Augenlicht, Professors of Cell Biology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York (Einstein). We are identifying specific roles for glycans in the regulation of Notch signaling during intestinal development. Mice with targeted mutations and intestinal crypt co-culture assays have been developed to reveal O-glycan roles during stem cell differentiation. Identifying independent and synergistic functions for O-glycans in regulating Notch signaling in intestinal stem cells is our current focus. A list of relevant publications may be found at: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=augenlicht+l+notch

Position#:10092017
Title: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mammalian Epigenetics, Chromatin Structure and Function

JOB DESCRIPTION:


A postdoctoral position is available at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the laboratory of Dr. Art Skoultchi, Professor and Chair of Cell Biology.

The goal is to understand the roles of H1 linker histones in chromatin structure and function and gene regulation. We have prepared a unique series of knock-out mice and ES cell lines lacking specific H1 histones. Our studies have revealed roles for H1 histones in DNA damage repair, gene regulation, including DNA methylation and imprinting, and nuclear organization (Fan et al. 2005, Cell 123, 1199-1212; Murga et al. 2007, J. Cell Biol. 178, 1101-1108; Yang et al. 2013, PNAS 110, 1708-1713; Geeven et al. 2015, Genome Biol. 16, 289)

Seeking an accomplished applicant with a strong background in cell and molecular biology. Experience working with embryonic stem cells and mice is a plus. However, in the selection of candidates we will emphasize overall scientific abilities and potential rather than specific experience or technical expertise. Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent and possess strong independent research abilities with ambitious scientific interests, self-motivation and the ability to work effectively with a team.

Successful candidates will be offered generous salary and benefits, including College-subsidized postdoctoral housing in a pleasant residential neighborhood near the medical school. To apply, please send a CV with a brief description of research experience and career goals, plus contact information for three references to:

JOB DESCRIPTION:

A POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP is available to study the molecular and biochemical mechanisms of antibody variable region hypermutation and class switch recombination. We use tissue culture and mouse models that can be manipulated genetically and biochemically to study the role of activation induced deaminase and error prone mismatch repair in the targeting of somatic hypermutation. Some of these studies have been extended to examine the role of activation induced deaminase in the progression of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. See web page for more information: http://einstein.yu.edu/departments/cell-biology/faculty/matthew-scharff/research.aspx.

Recent PhD or MD graduates with significant research experience are preferred. Experience in the manipulation of gene expression in cultured mammalian cells and in the molecular analysis of primary cells from of mice is desirable and some knowledge of immunology would be useful. Some computational skills will also be desirable. First authored publication(s) in peer-reviewed, English language journals are necessary. Ability to work independently, motivation to make new discoveries and a strong work ethic are important.

JOB DESCRIPTION:


A POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIP is available in Pamela Stanley’s lab at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York to identify specific roles for glycans during spermatogenesis. The Stanley lab has shown that complex N-glycans are essential for spermatogenesis, and also identified a novel inhibitor of complex N-glycan synthesis that is proposed to regulate spermatogenesis. Mutant mice have been developed to identify specific roles for N-glycans and the functions of the novel inhibitor during spermatogenesis.

JOB DESCRIPTION:


The Ito Laboratory at the Ruth L. and David S. Gottesman Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Research of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine is actively seeking highly motivated postdoctoral fellows. Our research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms that regulate the maintenance of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and leukemia-initiating cells (LICs; also referred to as leukemia stem cells). Specifically, we aim to identify novel regulatory mechanisms for stem cell fate and maintenance, and in turn open new therapeutic avenues for the pharmacological manipulation of the normal and leukemic stem cell function. Projects in the laboratory is to illuminate through both genetic and pharmacological approaches the role of one such potential regulatory element, cellular metabolism and epigenetic regulation, in the cell fate decisions of self-renewing stem cells. The laboratory employs a wide range of stem cell analysis with specialized skill sets, genomic technologies as well as classical cellular and molecular biology approaches to investigate the normal stem cell biology at single cell level and the pathogenesis of specific human stem cell disorders.

Applicants must have a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent. A strong training background in hematology, stem cell biology and/or cancer biology, molecular and cell biology is preferred. To apply, please email CV, a summary of the previous research experience and the future research interest, and the contact information of three references to the following address: keisuke.ito@einstein.yu.edu. Keisuke Ito, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Cell Biology and of Medicine and Director of Scientific Resources of Stem Cell Institute, Gottesman Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Research, Albert Einstein Cancer Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, 1301 Morris Park Avenue, Bronx, NY 10461.

Among the top tier of the nation's medical schools to receive NIH funding, Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers a highly interactive and stimulating academic environment for scientists in training. Additionally, candidate’s research will benefit from the highly interactive environment within the Gottesman Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine, the Department of Developmental and Molecular Biology, and throughout the college. We are located in a pleasant residential area in the northeast corner of New York City with easy access to Manhattan and the suburbs of Westchester County. Comprehensive Benefits package will be offered. Postdoctoral campus housing may be available.
