A Postdoctoral position is available in the Dephoure research group at Weill Cornell Medical College to study the dynamics of protein expression, modification, degradation, and protein interaction networks and determine the impact on cellular physiology and human disease. The laboratory develops and uses multiplexed quantitative proteomics to track changes in the proteome and phosphoproteome for global network analysis and as a screening tool to identify signaling molecules for directed study. Successful candidates would also be expected to apply traditional biochemical and molecular biology approaches for follow-up experiments on novel and interesting findings.
The Dephoure Lab (dephourelab.com) is in the Department of Biochemistry and the Sandra and Edward Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York City. We have diverse projects studying various aspects of the proteome to understand cancer biology and neurodegenerative diseases. The lab is located in the newly opened Belfer Research Building and is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation and facilities.
Applicants will hold a PhD (or will complete one prior to start) in Analytical Chemistry, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Chemistry, or a similar discipline. Applicants must have good laboratory and analytical skills with experience working in a collaborative environment and should have demonstrated scientific productivity evidenced by high-quality research publications in English language journals. Demonstrated enthusiasm, motivation, and ability to work independently are essential.
Knowledge in one or more of the following areas is required:
• Proteomics (prior experience in mass spectrometry is highly desirable)
• Analytical Chemistry (HPLC, mass spectrometry)
• Bioinformatic analysis of large-scale datasets
• Protein kinases/phosphatases and protein phosphorylation
• Biochemical and cell biological methods
• Experience with mammalian cell culture
Please send a cover letter summarizing your research experience and interests as well as your future goals and why you believe you are the right fit for the position along with a CV and contact information for three references to:
