The Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts at the University of Michigan is seeking a postdoctoral research fellow for Dr. Yanzhuang Wang Laboratory.
Research in the Wang Lab focuses on the biogenesis, function, and defects of the Golgi in diseases. The Golgi apparatus is a central membrane organelle for protein trafficking and secretion in all eukaryotic cells. A unique feature of this organelle is a stack of flattened cisternae. Our research aims to understand how this structure is formed, why its formation is important for Golgi function under normal conditions, and how the Golgi becomes defective in its structure and function under stress or disease conditions. The work will provide a basic understanding of Golgi function in protein trafficking, inheritance during the cell cycle, and pathology in diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. For reference please go to our website at: https://sites.lsa.umich.edu/wang-lab/.
The successful candidate should be a recent Ph.D. graduate with experience in cell biology, protein biochemistry, molecular biology, and light and electronic microscopy, with a record of creativity and scientific productivity.
Please provide curriculum vitae, a brief summary of research accomplishments and future goals, and the names and contact information of three references to: Dr. Yanzhuang Wang, LSA Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, University of Michigan, 1105 North University Avenue, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1085.
