Postdoctoral Fellow Position at Stony Brook University in New York

The Krug laboratory in the Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at Stony Brook University seeks a PhD- or MD-level applicant to join as a post-doctoral fellow. The fellow will investigate the mechanism by which host signaling factors control gammaherpesvirus latency in an animal pathogenesis system. This is a multi-disciplinary project involving cell signaling, immunology, and ‘omics’ in addition to viral pathogenesis. A PhD or MD in Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Microbiology, Immunology or a closely related field and experience in molecular biology is required.
Required Qualifications: PhD or MD in Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics or closely related field. In-depth research experience in microbiology, immunology, molecular genetics, biochemistry, or cell biology.

Preferred Qualifications: Proven ability to carry out biomedical research as judged by scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals. Experience with molecular biology. Familiarity with animal models of disease.

Postdoctoral Opportunity at Stanford University

An exciting postdoctoral training opportunity is available in the laboratory of Dr. Mirna Mustapha in the Department of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery at Stanford University.  The Mustapha Lab’s primary research focus is to understand the genetics of deafness at the molecular, cellular and physiological levels.  The selected candidate will study the mechanisms involved in synapse functional maturation during cochlear development.

Candidates must have a PhD in genetics, developmental biology, physiology, neurobiology or a related bioscience discipline.  Applicants within 6 months of completing the PhD degree will also be considered.  The ideal candidate would have prior experience in mouse genetics and microscope imaging, or demonstrate potential interest in this area.

The candidate will be expected to play a key role in an active research team through motivation, collaboration, contribution to the Lab’s current research projects, and publications.  Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English are required.  Applicants who contribute to diversity, broadly defined, are encouraged to apply.  Members of the Mustapha Lab greatly benefit from collaborations and interactions with outstanding scientists within and outside the Department.

To apply, send a CV, names of references, and a one-page statement of research interests to Dr. Mirna Mustapha: mirnam@stanford.edu
