Positions Available in the Department of Pathology

Assistant or Associate Professor – Cancer Biology Program

The Department of Pathology at the Yale School of Medicine is seeking an applicant (M.D. or M.D., Ph.D. or Ph.D.) for a full time appointment at the Assistant or Associate Professor level in an interdisciplinary program in Cancer Biology. The Cancer Biology Program has strong ties and collaborative projects with investigators in the Yale Cancer Center and throughout the Yale community. The successful candidate will be positioned to establish research leadership in areas germane to current concepts of cancer biology, such as epigenetics, cancer stem cells, gene transcription, cell cycle control, cell motility and migration. Investigators working in the field of urologic (prostate and bladder) are particularly urged to apply. Other responsibilities will include contributions to Yale’s teaching and (if appropriate) its clinical programs.

Appointment to the faculty of the Yale School of Medicine and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences will be at a rank commensurate with accomplishments and experience.

Candidates should forward or e-mail their current curriculum vitae, a two page summary of their current and proposed research program, and the names of three senior references who are familiar with their work and potential to:

David Stern, Ph.D.
Professor of Pathology

email: joann.dagostino@yale.edu

Review of applications will begin on January 10, 2013 and continue until position has been filled.

Yale University is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer. Minority and female applicants are encouraged to apply.

Postdoctoral Positions Available

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.
