Postdoctoral Position

Postdoctoral position is available immediately at the National Institutes of Health in the laboratory of David B. Sacks to study intracellular signal transduction regulated by the Ca2+ -binding protein calmodulin and the scaffold protein IQGAP1. Current projects seek to identify new binding partners to those proteins and to explore the biological implications of these interactions in cell function, physiology, and disease (including cancer and diabetes). The research integrates a diverse array of cell biology, biochemistry, and molecular biology techniques.

About the lab: Our laboratory is part of the Clinical Center, located on the National Institutes of Health main campus (Bethesda, MD, USA). The laboratory is fully equipped with standard molecular biology, biochemistry, and cell biology instruments. The candidate will also have access to state-of-the-art on-site facilities for biological imaging, animal handling, biophysics and proteomics among others. Additionally, the NIH Intramural Research Program has a diverse array of seminars by guest speakers and training programs (grant writing, professional development, etc.).

Required qualifications: A background in cell biology, biochemistry and/or molecular biology is preferred, although applications from individuals with experience in other areas of biology are also invited. All applicants must have a Ph.D. and fewer than three years of postdoctoral experience. The position is fully funded for up to five years. Benefits include full family healthcare coverage.

To apply: Please send an email with CV and the names and contact information of at least three references to David Sacks ([email protected] )
