Strength Through Diversity
Ground breaking science. Advancing medicine. Healing made personal.
- A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Arvin Dar in the Tisch Cancer Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York. The lab uses structural and chemical biology approaches to investigate signal transduction and cancer pathways.
Projects are rooted in understanding drug-receptor interactions at atomic detail and using this information to guide the development of small molecule probes. An ideal candidate will have a background in chemical biology or synthetic organic chemistry. Projects focus on developing small molecule compounds for target validation and biological studies in models of human cancer. Cell and whole animal-based studies of compounds, including cell viability measurements of cancer cell lines treated alone or in combination with inhibitors to measure synergistic relationships, will be explored.
Facilities and resources for chemical synthesis, molecular, and structural biology are available. The lab is located in the newly completed Hess Center, which provides a rich environment for scientific interactions, collaborations, and state of the art facilities. An extensive program of seminars, symposia and other organized meetings on campus focused on a large array of topics in cancer, chemical biology, cardiovascular research, and neuroscience provides a broader knowledge of biology and medicine. Mount Sinai offers housing options to trainees within New York City.
