Type: Full Time
Location: Bronx, New York
A Postdoc position is available in the Laboratory of Prof. Arne Gennerich in the Gruss-Lipper Biophotonics Center and the Department of Anatomy and Structural Biology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine (www.gennerichlab.org/). Applicants with backgrounds in protein biochemistry, molecular biology or biophysics who seek to work in a highly interdisciplinary environment are strongly encouraged to apply.
The Gennerich laboratory is interested in the fundamental molecular mechanisms of cytoskeletal motor proteins and their associated biological processes. The lab employs a multidisciplinary approach integrating single-molecule biophysics (high-resolution optical trapping and multicolor single-molecule fluorescence microscopy), biochemistry and molecular biology to dissect the molecular mechanisms of microtubule-based motor proteins. Current research is focused on the microtubule-associated motor protein cytoplasmic dynein. The mechanistic insights gained from these studies will lead to a better understanding of the fundamental design principles of motor proteins and their associated cellular functions and related human diseases.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information.
Successful candidates should have previous experience in protein biochemistry, molecular biology or single-molecule biophysics. Interested applicants should submit a detailed curriculum vitae and the names of three references to Dr. Gennerich at firstname.lastname@example.org.
