A position for Postdoctoral Fellow is available in The Puleston Lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. The mission of our lab is to understand the metabolic factors that fuel immunity. Applying cutting-edge metabolomics and in vivo models of disease, our focus lies at the intersection of metabolism, pathology, and the immune system where we strive to expose novel metabolic vulnerabilities that can be utilized to limit disease. The lab has active interests across a variety of areas, including the metabolic basis of tumorigenesis; metabolic factors governing tumor immune dysfunction; and metabolic regulation of pluri-and multipotency in stem and progenitor cells.
Candidates should hold a PhD degree in the field of cell biology, immunology or biochemistry or a related area. Applicants are expected to have experience in the isolation and culture of stem/progenitor or immune cells and ideally mouse models of cancer and autoimmunity. Experience with bioinformatics analysis, metabolic assays and/or mass spectrometry is advantageous, but not essential.
Our Lab is located on the Mount Sinai Hospital Campus in Manhattan in close proximity to Central Park. A member of the Precision Immunology Institute and the Tisch Cancer Institute, the lab has access to world-class facilities in a thriving academic center. The school is one of the nation’s leading medical schools, ranked in the top 20 schools of NIH funding. As a lab, we want to ensure you are joining a stimulating, welcoming, and diverse environment; one in which you feel comfortable and able to maximize your potential. We are committed to your personal and professional development and will provide the necessary support for you to achieve your future aspirations whilst helping you expand significantly upon your current skill and knowledge set. Applicants should send a brief cover letter detailing their research career to date and future plans, alongside a CV with the contact information of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Dr. Puleston is also available for informal discussions prior to full applications. More information about the PI can be found at http://icahn.mssm.edu/profiles/daniel-puleston
