Post Doctoral Research Associate in Drug Discovery, Cancer Biology, and Alzheimer's Disease

Job Summary

We seek highly motivated postdoctoral associates to apply novel chemical, cellular, genetic and proteomic approaches to identify and validate potential clinical targets in highly aggressive human cancers and Alzheimer’s Disease within the laboratory of Dr. Kavita Shah. We particularly focus on kinases, which are central players in these disease pathways. A Ph.D. in cell biology or biochemistry is desired. Ideal candidate should have expertise in one or more of the following areas: cell biology (including mammalian cell culture, transfection, PCR, qPCR, western blotting), signal transduction, molecular biology, cancer biology, neurobiology and enzyme kinetics. The PI is a pioneer to develop a chemical genetic approach for the identification of direct substrates of protein kinases, and the approach has been widely used in the signaling transduction field.
