Postdoctoral Fellow Position at NYU School of Medicine

Urothelial Differentiation & Stem Cells

A postdoctoral position is available in Drs. Xue-Ru Wu and Tung-Tien Sun’s joint team at NYU School of Medicine to study the differentiation and stem cells of the urothelium. Diseases involving urothelium include urinary tract infection and bladder cancer, which are among the most important human diseases.

Our team has a longstanding interest in studying epithelial differentiation and stem cells, having contributed to the identification of keratins as epithelial markers, the identification of corneal and follicular epithelial stem cells, and the discovery of uroplakins – which are major urothelial differentiation products that form 2D crystals covering the urothelial apical surface. Current projects study the structure, function and disease implications of uroplakins, and the mechanisms of urinary tract infection and bladder tumorigenesis. For more information, visit: https://med.nyu.edu/urology/research/research-faculty/xue-ru-wu-md and http://sun-lab.med.nyu.edu/.

We are looking for an ambitious, young postdoc to join our team. The candidate will preferably have a PhD degree related to biochemistry/cell & molecular biology and love independent research. Candidates can send your CV, and contact information for three referees, to Xue-Ru.Wu@nyumc.org and/or tung-tien.sun@nyumc.org.
