A POSTDOCTORAL position is open to recent PhD graduates ( less than 2 yrs of postdoctoral experience only) to study transcriptional regulation by nuclear receptors and coregulators as related to macrophage biology, inflammation, neuroinflammation, and metabolism in vitro and in mouse models at the Hospital for Special Surgery/Cornell University School of Medicine ( http://www.hss.edu/research-staff_rogatsky-inez.asp ).
The laboratory is located in newly renovated space and is outfitted with equipment and facilities fit to perform cutting edge molecular biology, genomics, biochemistry and immunology research. HSS is a part of a tri-institutional alliance (Cornell University, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Rockefeller University) and offers a superb research environment and a collegial atmosphere.
The position requires previous research experience in biochemistry/molecular biology and a strong publication record. Background in transcriptional regulation, genomics and nuclear receptor signaling is desirable. Initial salary is commensurate with experience; applying for independent funding is strongly encouraged. Qualified candidates will receive a housing supplement to off-set the cost of living in NYC.
Please submit a CV with a description of research experience and interests and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org)
