  • Cell Biology Postdoctoral Positions - Gerry Hammond Lab

    Friday, August 26, 2016

    The Hammond Lab (website) is currently seeking a highly motivated postdoc to join our growing team. The successful applicant will use state-of-the-art optical super-resolution and single molecule approaches to probe the molecular architecture of the plasma membrane. The project involves using newly devised chemical and optogenetic tools to interrogate how lipid dynamics control and coordinate parallel membrane functions, from endocytosis to signal transduction. We are tackling these problems in genetically tractable cultured cell lines, as well as model cell systems relevant to vascular disease and asthma. To apply, candidates should send their CV, a one page summary of past research accomplishments and future research interests, and the contact details for three references to: ghammond@pitt.edu - [more]
  • Cell Biology Postdoctoral Positions - Nathan Yates Lab

    Wednesday, August 19, 2015

    The Yates lab (website) invites applicants for a post-doctoral position in the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Department of Cell Biology. The major focus of the laboratory is to educate scientists that want to advance cutting-edge mass spectrometry based methods for improving health and fighting disease. Our work is highly multidisciplinary, bringing together expertise in biochemistry, high-resolution mass spectrometry, and informatics with collaborative publications related to Cancer, Schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, and Metabolic Disorders. Working closely with the pharmaceutical industry, we have a special interest in proteomic methods that identify drug-target interactions and elucidate novel on/off-target effects of medicines. We actively partner with companies to drive our experimental innovations towards commercial development. - [more]
