Mount Sinai Careers
NIH-funded Postdoctoral Fellow positions are available immediately to investigate molecular mechanisms of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell fate specification using mouse models and primary cells from both mouse and human tissues. One focus of the lab is to study the Wnt signaling pathway in embryonic hematopoiesis and erythropoiesis. A second (recent) focus is on definitive (adult) hematopoietic and erythroid progenitor development (mouse fetal liver or bone marrow, human progenitors from peripheral blood or bone marrow). We are developing a high throughput screen for regulators of erythroid progenitors as well as later stages of maturation, including enucleation, and are targeting specific pathways for detailed analysis.
Postdoctoral Fellow position available to investigate molecular mechanisms of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell fate specification using mouse and human primary cell and ES cell models and animals. The ideal candidate should be highly motivated, have an MD and/or PhD degree, and a strong background in molecular biology, cell biology, hematopoiesis, and/or mouse genetics and publications in internationally recognized journals. Applicants should be fluent in English and be available for an interview. Experience with mammalian cell culture, FACS analysis, fluorescence/confocal microscopy, and/or analysis of transgenic/knockout mice strongly preferred.
