Postdoctoral Associate Position

A Postdoctoral Associate position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Narendra Wajapeyee at the Yale School of Medicine. The postdoctoral candidate will use cutting edge technologies to discover the drivers of human cancers. Experience with mouse models of cancer and RNAi screening/CRISPR-CAS9 screening will be preferred. Evidence of one or more first author publications is necessary for applying for this position.

The overview of the research in Wajapeyee lab can be found at Pubmed using the URL http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=wajapeyee.

Requirements:

Evidence of one or more first author publications, experience with cell culture techniques, and some exposure to handling mouse models of cancer is necessary for applying for this position.

Interested candidates should forward via e-mail a current CV, a statement regarding their research interest in cancer, a biosketch and the names of three referees to: Narendra.Wajapeyee@yale.edu. Shortlisted candidates will be interviewed and requested to provide three letters of reference.

Postdoctoral Associate Position

Accomplished Ph.D. graduates seeking postdoctoral associate training in programmed cell death are invited to apply to the Katz Laboratory in the Department of Pathology at Yale University. Successful candidates will work with BCL-2 family proteins, which play essential roles in many cellular functions including apoptosis. Disruption of apoptosis results in both diseases of cellular excess such as cancer and diseases of cellular loss such as neurodegeneration. A detailed understanding of how BCL-2 family members regulate apoptosis will ultimately allow the design novel therapies for a multitude of diseases. Recent work has focused on mechanisms by which loss of pro-apoptotic BCL-2 family members contribute to lymphomagenesis.

Successful candidates will be trained to develop an independent research career under the mentorship of Dr. Katz. This is an exciting opportunity to study mouse models of severe apoptotic resistance using state-of-art techniques in molecular, cellular and chemical biology. Motivated candidates with strong written and verbal skills and expertise in immunology, primary human lymphoid cell isolation and culture, or performing large scale screens with subsequent computational analysis preferred.

Interested candidates should forward a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a 1-2 page description of their research interests together with the names and addresses of three references via e-mail to: samuel.katz@yale.edu

Postgraduate Positions Available

Postgraduate Associate Position

A postgraduate associate is sought for a new position in the laboratory of Demetrios Braddock, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor of Pathology, to study translational approaches to rare diseases of ectopic mineralization. The main focus of the position will be to manage a large animal colony (of approximately 150 animals) and conduct translational experiments in animal models of the rare neonatal orphan disease ‘generalized arterial calcification of infancy (GACI)’. The postgraduate associate will be instructed in the following disciplines and techniques:

1. Managing animal colony, including breeding, weaning, genotyping animals and colony maintenance and planning.
2. Animal (mouse) experimentation involves daily injection of a therapeutic, recording of animal weights, and compilation of histologic and serologic data.
3. The design and optimization of protein therapeutics for model systems studied, protein overexpression in baculovirus and mammalian systems, and enzyme kinetics. 

The individual must:

1. Understand University and government policies and safety regulations.
2. Be highly motivated, dependable and detailed oriented, with the ability to function autonomously and perform independent research. 

A Bachelor's Degree in a appropriate scientific field (Molecular and Cellular biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry and Biophysics) is required from a reputable four year undergraduate institution.
