• Sector: Academic
• Location: IMM, University of Texas-Health Science Center in Houston
• Salary: NIH standard plus health and dental benefits
Postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the McCarty lab at the Institute of Molecular Medicine to investigate the roles of protein degradation pathways in neurological diseases and cancers. Experimental models focus on molecular interactions of genes and their contribution in cancer progression and neurological diseases using cell lines and mouse models. Background in protein degradation, ER stress, autophagy, UPS, ubiquitins are encouraged but not required.
Requirements: Highly motivated PhD or MD/PhD with a solid background in molecular and cell biology. The project will require knowledge regarding general idea on cloning techniques, generating mutant constructs to test interactions between genes, protein assays, microscopes and cell culture techniques. Must have a fluent English speaking and writing ability.
The McCarty lab is a part of a vibrant stem cell community, the Center for Stem Cell and Degenerative Disease at the Institute of Molecular Medicine (IMM) at UT Medical Center in Houston. Interested applicants should send
1. Cover letter explaining relevant work experience
3. The names, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses of two references
via an e-mail to: email@example.com (Associate Professor, Annie and Bob Graham Distinguished Chair in Stem Cell Biology).
