Post-doctoral position available to study cell stress and disease in zebrafish
Highly motivated and collaborative applicants are sought for a position of Postdoctoral Fellow in the group of Dr. Kirsten Sadler Edepli at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. Projects focused on the relationship between the unfolded protein response (UPR; i.e. the ER stress pathway) and lipid metabolism in zebrafish will require both an ability to undertake both cellular and classic genetics approaches in zebrafish combined with bioinformatics and systems level analysis of the UPR transcriptome. Successful applicants will have obtained Ph.D. or equivalent training in developmental biology, biochemistry or genetics and will be able to lead a collaborative and complex project involving both computational, informatics and wet-lab experiments. The ability to work as a good natured and highly driven member of a team is essential as is the ability to communicate ideas in a clear and compelling fashion. This will be demonstrated through having a first-author publication from previous research experiences and having participated in scientific meetings.
Mount Sinai offers state of-the-art resources to carry out biomedical research and for post-doctoral training in the heart of New York City. We seek motivated, smart, friendly and enthusiastic researchers to join our team and to excel in their career while maintaining work-life balance. All lab members are expected to participate in training opportunities and activities that allow the development of executive and leadership skills, including management, mentorship, writing, speaking and engagement in the scientific community. While this position is grant-funded, submitting a fellowship application within the first year is required. Both positions are open immediately.
