  • Unravelling Signaling Pathways Disrupted in Intellectual Disability
Lab Website: bustos-lab

frbustos Sioux Falls, SD, USA


The Bustos Lab in the Pediatrics and Rare Diseases Group at Sanford Research has an opening for a Postdoctoral Fellow to investigate ubiquitin related signaling pathways that are disrupted in intellectual disabilities. This research will be carried out by using cutting-edge technologies to study signal transduction using pluripotent stem cells as a developmental model.
Please email Dr. Francisco Bustos with a letter describing your experience and research interests, your CV, and names of three references. Informal enquiries are welcome.

Qualifications/Preferred Skillsets:

The ideal candidate will have PhD in Cell Biology, Biochemistry, or related discipline and experience in cell culture and molecular biology. Prior experience in stem cell biology or protein biochemistry and a publication record in international peer-reviewed journals are desirable. Candidates from underrepresented backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
