Postdoctoral Positions Available Membrane Biology and the Cellular Basis of Disease

The Biochemistry Department at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City has postdoctoral positions available in several neighboring labs with overlapping interests in Membrane Biology and the Cellular Basis of Disease.  Areas of interest include: the role of regulated membrane traffic in the control of whole body metabolism (McGraw lab); membrane traffic and its application to understanding cholesterol transport, control of lysosomal pH and extracellular degradation of large objects (e.g., amyloid, dead adipocytes, or deposits of lipoproteins) by macrophages (Maxfield lab); molecular mechanisms by which lipids are transported across and between cellular membranes, specifically lipid flip-flop in the control of membrane assembly and transbilayer asymmetry, lipid flipping in glycosylation pathways in the endoplasmic reticulum, and cholesterol trafficking within cells (Menon lab); molecular roles of protein structure, disorder, and membrane interactions in physiological and pathological functions relating to neurodegenerative disease and neurotransmission (Eliezer lab).
