Postdoctoral opportunity available to study cell signaling that controls growth and metabolism, and the role in cancer and other human diseases. Through genetic and genomic approaches using yeast as a model organism, we have identified a large number of novel genes in the mTOR pathway. Current efforts are directed at understanding their functions in normal physiology and diseases (e.g. cancer, diabetes and neurological disorders) in cells, genetically engineered mice and patient samples. We are also interested in how aberrant oncogenic alterations influence therapeutic outcome. Rutgers University is conveniently located in the New York City metro area. It offers state-of-the-art facilities and stimulating scientific environment. For more information, please see our sample publications: Molecular Cell 70:383; Hepatology 67:2271; Cancer Cell 26:754; Cell Reports 11:446; Hepatology 63:1928; Nature Comm 5:3446, Nature 442: 1058; EMBO J 28:2220; Molecular Cell 10:1295, or visit: https://www.cinj.org/zhenglab

We are seeking highly motivated individuals with a recent PhD degree in molecular cellular biology, cancer biology, neurobiology or other related biological sciences. Individuals with experience with genetically engineered mouse models are especially encouraged. 

Interested applicants should send a recent CV and names of three references to: Dr. Steven Zheng, University Professor and Chief, Division of Cancer Pharmacology, Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey. Email: zhengst@cinj.rutgers.edu
