• Sector: Academic
• Location: IMM, University of Texas-Health Science Center in Houston
• Salary: NIH standard plus health and dental benefits
Postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the McCarty lab at the Institute of Molecular Medicine to investigate the roles of protein degradation pathways in multiple myeloma in the context of tumor microenvironment and immunotherapies. Experimental models including mouse models and cell lines and the postdoc will investigate molecular interactions of different genes and their contribution in multiple myeloma. Background in different cell biology topics including protein degradation, ER stress, autophagy, UPS, ubiquitins, and tumor microenvironment and immunotherapies are encouraged but not required.
Requirements: Highly motivated PhD or MD/PhD with a solid background in molecular and cell biology. The project will require knowledge regarding general idea on cloning techniques, generating mutant constructs to test interactions between genes, protein assays, microscopes and cell culture techniques. Must have a fluent English speaking and writing ability.
The McCarty lab is a part of a vibrant stem cell community, the Center for Stem Cell and Degenerative Disease at the Institute of Molecular Medicine (IMM) at UT Medical Center in Houston. Interested applicants should send
1. Cover letter explaining relevant work experience
3. The names, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses of two references
