New Haven, CT


Two postdoctoral associate positions are now available for enthusiastic individuals who are interested in studying protein tyrosine phosphatases and chemokine-GPCR’s. The projects involve 1) investigating the mechanisms of MAP kinase phosphatases as novel therapeutic targets for the treatment of human diseases such as metabolic disease, heart disease and cancer and 2) using mouse genetics to generate and characterize humanized chemokine and GPCR models of cancer. These projects will utilize chemical biology, structural biology, biochemical and mouse genetic techniques to define the molecular basis of MAP kinase phosphatase and chemokine-GPCR signaling. There are opportunities to study small molecules and other biological and cell-based therapeutics under development.


The two individuals will be responsible for developing and maintaining an independent research project and will require expertise in either structural and chemical biology or biochemical and mouse genetic skills. The position will necessitate a high level of collaborative interactions with other research teams at Yale University in a multi-disciplinary environment. Support for academic enrichment and career development will be core to the postdoctoral research positions.
