The Jonathan Soboloff laboratory at the Fels Institute of Cancer Research and Molecular Biology is recruiting a new postdoctoral fellow to study numerous aspects of STIM-dependent calcium signaling. The ideal candidate will have a recent PhD, at least 1 first author publication in a mid- to high-impact journal. The laboratory's interests include fundamental mechanisms regulating the generation of calcium signals and their relevance to multiple aspects of immunology, cancer, and bone physiology. However, as this lab has just received new NIH R01 funding to investigate T cell activation, the new lab member would be expected to work primarily in this area. Research techniques used in the lab include advanced microscopy approaches, Western analysis, ChIP, qPCR, and general molecular biology.
The position is full-time, with the expectation that the fellow will be independently motivated. As a postdoctoral fellow, the primary duty will be to complete scientific experiments towards the preparation of published works, although the postdoc supervisor will also support career development as appropriate and needed. The ideal candidate will keep up with relevant literature, contribute to scientific writing, and present the Soboloff group's research at international conferences with the supervisor's full support.
Finally, as a senior lab member, the Soboloff group anticipates that the fellow will contribute to the training of junior lab members. When significant, these contributions will be recognized with authorship on publications.
U.S. citizens/green card holders will have opportunities for external funding and will receive special consideration.
