The Gupta Lab at the Yale School of Medicine is hiring!

We are looking for  postdoctoral researchers who are excited to work at the intersection of membrane biology, cell signaling, and mass spectrometry. This hiring call is for  independent projects, funded by NIH and the Michael J Fox Foundation, that have an overarching goal of obtaining a quantitative view of membrane dynamics with spatial and molecular resolution; with an emphasis on ageing and neurodegenerative diseases. To achieve this, we will majorly use mass spectrometry, coupled with an extensive array of orthogonal approaches, such as single molecule fluorescence microscopy, electron microscopy, molecular dynamic simulations, and other in vitro and cell-based assays. For a more comprehensive account of our work, methods, and ideas, head to

What we are looking for: The Lab has multiple postdoctoral positioning available. We welcome all candidates with expertise in any branch of Biomedical, Chemical, and Engineering Sciences. We are broadly looking for candidates in two categories:

  •  Category A: Applicants with expertise in biochemistry, and molecular biology with experience in expression and purification of membrane proteins from various cellular systems. For candidates in this category, prior mass spec expertise is NOT required. The project will provide a fantastic opportunity to learn state of the art mass spectrometry and interface that with your skill set to address some of the key questions pertaining to membrane biology.
  • Category B: Applicants with prior experience in mass spectrometry, especially candidates with expertise in native mass spectrometry, with thorough understanding of the fundamentals of mass spec are particularly welcome. For candidates in this category, prior expertise in protein biochemistry is NOT required. Count on us to train you! The project will provide a fantastic opportunity to apply your MS skills to address some of the outstanding questions in membrane associated cellular signaling.

Who we are: The Gupta lab is a diverse and inclusive workplace. Research in our lab ranges from novel mass spectrometric method development to understanding mechanistic nuances of cell signaling. Accordingly, we have an extremely diverse group of scientists who bring orthogonal expertise to the lab, ranging from plant biology to bioengineering. Together, we address the questions at hand in a collaborative manner.

Interested researchers can send their CV with their prospective research interests, and the contact details of three to five referees, to Kallol Gupta (, Department of Cell Biology, Yale School of Medicine.   

Yale University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer. Yale values diversity among its students, staff, and faculty and strongly welcomes applications from women, persons with disabilities, protected veterans, and underrepresented minorities.
