Postdoctoral Position at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York

A NIH-funded POSTDOCTORAL position is available in the laboratory of Pamela Stanley, Professor of Cell Biology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. We are identifying specific roles for glycans in the regulation of Notch signaling during T and B cell development. Mice with targeted mutations and co-culture assays have been developed to reveal glycan roles using co-culture assays of T cell development from HSC, and the differentiation of bone marrow HSC in vivo. Identifying independent and synergistic functions for O-glycans in regulating Notch signaling in HSC differentiation is our current focus. A full list of publications may be found at the lab website:

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, along with creativity, high motivation and a strong work ethic, are important. Curriculum vitae with a description of research experience and contact information for three referees should be sent to pamela.stanley@einstein.yu.edu

            The Department of Cell Biology has a strong core of postdoctoral fellows and graduate students working in diverse areas of development, cell biology, immunology and cancer biology. The Department is highly interactive, meets weekly for work-in-progress seminars, and biweekly for a journal club, and hosts numerous outside seminar speakers. http://www.einstein.yu.edu/departments/cell-biology/  There is an interdepartmental immunology journal club. The Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Einstein) is one of the nation’s premier institutions for basic research and clinical investigation, with over 200 research laboratories funded by the National Institutes of Health. There are ~220 PhD students, and ~300 postdoctoral fellows at Einstein. Postdoctoral fellows are supported by the Einstein Postdoc Association (http://einsteinpostdocs.info/)  and the Belfer Institute (http://www.einstein.yu.edu/research/belfer-institute/)   

            Einstein has several NIH Centers of Excellence and extensive core research facilities that support state-of-the-art research https://www.einstein.yu.edu/research/shared-facilities/ Subsidized postdoctoral housing is available. Einstein is in a low density, residential Bronx community with easy access to City Island, Orchard Beach and all the opportunities of New York City.
