 1. Postdoctoral Associate - Cell Biology

University of Pittsburgh
Location: Pittsburgh, PA
Job Number: 7151561 (Ref #: pt100124)
Posting Date: Jun 1, 2023
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled

Job Description
Join the Hammond lab as a post-doc and spearhead a groundbreaking project that uncovers the secrets of membrane lipid signaling, amplifying our understanding of cellular physiology and disease. We have made recent groundbreaking discoveries regarding how the central regulatory lipid, PI(4,5)P2, regulates myriad aspects of cellular physiology at the plasma membrane. By investigating how this lipid is balanced and exploring its impact on cellular function, you will have the opportunity to unravel the mechanisms behind diseases ranging from cancer to dysentery. A current particular focus is on the lipid’s dynamics in metastatic breast cancer. As a key member of our team, you will pioneer research to identify the regulatory pathways that maintain lipid levels and explore the molecular landscape constraining its dynamics. This is expected to lead towards the development of innovative strategies for restoring lipid balance in disease. Visit hammondlab.com to explore more details of our research. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to make a profound impact on human health and advance scientific knowledge. The earliest start date is 7/1/2023, with flexibility based on your circumstances, such as the completion of your thesis work.

Job Description
The Postdoctoral Associate will be critical in the role of biomarker screening, assessment, and the development of personalized treatment strategies for ovarian cancer. A Doctoral degree in a biology-related field is required. An advanced understanding and experience with standard molecular biology, cell biology, cancer biology and tissue culture methods are necessary. The Postdoctoral Associate will design and determine details of the experimental process and data analysis methodology. Additional ability to troubleshoot experiments and work independently is desired.

The Postdoctoral Associate will be expected to perform and conceptualize experiments on several projects that focus on understanding the mechanisms and factors in the early stages of initiation and progression in ovarian cancer. This will include data collection and the analysis of molecular biology techniques such as: DNA/RNA isolation, quantitative PCR, western blotting, primary cell culture, gene transfer or editing of cancer cell lines, RNA sequencing, RNA interference, genome-wide RNAi screening, and CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technology. He/She will be responsible for designing and developing new experimental protocols for the study. The Postdoctoral Associate is expected to present results in the form of journal articles, conference talks and abstracts, as well as participate in the preparation and writing of manuscripts & grants. He/She will assist in supervising graduate and summer students, and when necessary, train lab personnel in experimental molecular biology techniques. The Postdoctoral Associate must have the ability to collaborate within a multi-disciplinary team and possess excellent verbal and written communication skills.
