Sampath Lab Postdoctoral Position

The Sampath lab is seeking a motivated and talented first‐year postdoctoral candidate to join the team. The ideal candidate will have strong communication skills, a publication record consistent with career level, and an interest in understanding regulation of cell function by lipids and other exposures. Expertise in the use of transgenic mouse models and mammalian cell culture is required. Also desired is a background in biochemistry/molecular biology with technical knowledge in basic biochemical techniques, including IHC/IF, EMSA, siRNA, protein and nucleic acid chemistry, lipid extractions and analyses. Experience with studies of intestinal biology and/or lipid droplets are preferred by not required. More information about ongoing projects can be found at: http://nutrition.rutgers.edu/faculty/harini-sampath.html

The small but energetic research group is housed in a brand new, state‐of‐the‐art building in New Brunswick, NJ with multiple active projects to choose from. The campus is located in an urban area in close proximity to the cultural and scientific offerings in both NYC and Philadelphia. Interested candidates should email Dr. Harini Sampath at sampath@ifnh.rutgers.edu with a current CV and list of 3 potential references.

Carman Lab Postdoctoral Position

A postdoctoral position is available in the Carman laboratory at the Center for Lipid Research within the Institute for Food, Health, and Nutrition at Rutgers University.  The laboratory is known for its studies on the molecular genetics and biochemical regulation of yeast lipid metabolism.  The current focus is to understand mechanisms by which membrane phospholipids are synthesized along with the synthesis of triacylglycerol (fat).  Research projects include the posttranslational modifications (e.g., phosphorylation, dephosphorylation, and ubiquitination) of the phosphatidic acid phosphatase (Pah1, lipin) and its regulator protein phosphatase Nem1-Spo7.  Additional information about the Carman laboratory that includes reprints of recent publications is found at http://foodsci.rutgers.edu/carman/index.html.  The applicant is expected to have expertise in biochemistry and/or molecular biology.  Submit a cover letter with your career objectives, a CV, and the email addresses of three references to Dr. George M. Carman (gcarman@rutgers.edu).  Rutgers University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
