POSTDOCTORAL POSITION

Laboratory of Dr. Pamela Stanley
Albert Einstein College Medicine, New York
  
A postdoctoral fellowship is available immediately in Pamela Stanley’s lab at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York to identify specific roles for glycans during spermatogenesis. The Stanley lab has shown that MGAT1 and complex N-glycans are essential for spermatogenesis. Conditional deletion of Mgat1 in spermatogonia results in spermatid fusion and no sperm. Roles for specific glycoproteins in the spermatogenesis defect will be investigated. Publications are linked to the laboratory homepage at: http://www.einstein.yu.edu/departments/cell-biology/faculty/stanley/home/

Applicants should have extensive expertise in molecular and cell biology, and in using mouse genetic models. First author publication(s) in peer-reviewed, English language journals are necessary. Candidates with outstanding credentials may be eligible for a Harry Eagle Fellowship http://www.einstein.yu.edu/departments/cell-biology/harry-eagle-scholar/ Ability to work independently, creatively, strong motivation and work ethic are important. Recent PhD graduates with experience in investigations of male fertility are preferred. A curriculum vitae with a description of research experiences and contact information for three references should be sent to mailto:gianette.fata@einstein.yu.edu?subject=Stanley Spermatogenesis Application
