Postdoctoral position is available immediately to study intracellular signal transduction regulated by Ca2+ and calmodulin. This fully funded position is directed towards elucidating the molecular mechanisms by which signalling pathways are disrupted in human disease, with a focus on cancer and diabetes. The research integrates a diverse array of cell biology, biochemistry and molecular biology techniques to identify the functions of Ca2+/calmodulin, the calmodulin-binding scaffold protein IQGAP1 and their binding partners in signalling. Background in biochemistry, molecular biology or cell biology is required and a Ph.D. within the last three years.
To apply: Please send an email with CV and the names and contact information of at least three references to David Sacks ([email protected])
