Wayne State University - Two Post-doctoral Position

Two postdoctoral positions are currently available in the Greenberg laboratory in the Department of Biological Sciences at Wayne State University. We utilize the powerful genetic, molecular, and cell biological tools of the yeast system and relevant mammalian cell cultures to elucidate the cellular functions of two essential lipid pathways. One project is to understand the mitochondrial and cellular functions of cardiolipin, the signature lipid of the mitochondrial membrane. This project focuses on the role of cardiolipin in cellular energy metabolism, the function of cardiolipin remodeling, and the link between cardiolipin and the life-threatening genetic disorder, Barth syndrome. The second project seeks to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying regulation of inositol synthesis, the essential functions of inositol phospholipids and metabolites, and the cellular consequences of inositol depleting drugs. These studies have implications for understanding the therapeutic mechanisms of action of mood stabilizing drugs. Further information can be found at http://www.clas.wayne.edu/greenberg/. Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, and the names and email addresses of three references to Dr. Miriam L. Greenberg (mgreenberg@wayne.edu).

Carnegie Institution for Science - Post-doctoral Position

Postdoctoral Researcher – Full Time
Department: EMB – Embryology
Location: Baltimore, MD
Salary: NIH-NRSA Stipend Scale

Job Summary:
A postdoctoral position to identify small molecules and genetic pathways that regulate lipid metabolism is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Steven Farber at the Carnegie Institution for Science, Department of Embryology, in Baltimore, MD.

The position requires a highly-motivated applicant with a strong interest in questions of lipid metabolism. The position involves conducting a state-of-the-art pharmacogenetic screen for modifiers of lipoprotein metabolism and studies at the cellular and subcellular levels to characterize zebrafish with mutations in genes affecting digestive organ lipid uptake, metabolism, transport and storage.

The Farber laboratory performs studies at the nexus of cell biology, metabolism and digestive physiology. The Carnegie Department of Embryology follows the current NIH-NRSA postdoctoral stipend scale and our postdoctoral benefit package includes health care, sick leave, annual leave, parental leave, life insurance, and paid holidays.

Qualifications:
An ideal candidate will be creative, industrious, have excellent communication skills, and enjoy working independently as well as collaboratively. A Ph.D. in a related field and fluency in spoken and written English is required for the position.

To apply:
A CV, statement of research interest, and contact information for three references are required to apply. Apply online at: https://jobs.carnegiescience.edu/jobs/emb/

Additional information:
The Department of Embryology is one of six departments comprising the Carnegie Institution for Science. The department functions as a private, non-profit research institute affiliated with the Johns Hopkins University and is located adjacent to the JHU Homewood campus in Baltimore, MD. The department consists of 10 laboratories studying a variety of questions in cell and developmental biology. For more information about the Department, visit http://emb.carnegiescience.edu/

Carnegie is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of gender, race/ethnicity, protected veteran status, disability, or other protected group status.

Carman Laboratory - Post-doctoral Position

A postdoctoral position is available in the Carman laboratory at the Center for Lipid Research within the Institute for Food, Health, and Nutrition at Rutgers University. The laboratory is known for its studies on the molecular genetics and biochemical regulation of yeast lipid metabolism. The current focus is to understand mechanisms by which membrane phospholipids are synthesized along with the synthesis of triacylglycerol (fat). Research projects include the posttranslational modifications (e.g., phosphorylation, dephosphorylation, and ubiquitination) of the phosphatidic acid phosphatase (Pah1, lipin) and its regulator protein phosphatase Nem1-Spo7. Additional information about the Carman laboratory that includes reprints of recent publications is found at http://foodsci.rutgers.edu/carman/index.html. The applicant is expected to have expertise in biochemistry and/or molecular biology. Submit a cover letter with your career objectives, a CV, and the email addresses of three references to Dr. George M. Carman (gcarman@rutgers.edu). Rutgers University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
