Postdoctoral opportunities are available to study cell signaling that controls growth and metabolism, and the role in cancer biology and therapy. Through genetic and genomic approaches using yeast as a model organism, we have identified a large panel of genes involved in mTOR pathway. We are using integrated experimental and data mining approaches to understand their functions in normal physiology and diseases such as cancer and diabetes. We are also interested in how aberrant alterations influence therapeutic outcomes. Rutgers University is conveniently located in the desirable New York City metropolitan area. It offers state-of-the-art facilities, and highly interactive and stimulating scientific environment. For more information, please see samples of our publications: Nature Comm 12:2259; Cell Rep 34: 108830; Mol Cell 70: 383-384; Cancer Cell 26: 754; Hepatology 67: 2271; Cell Rep 11: 446; Nature Comm 5: 3446; Nature 442: 1058, or visit: https://www.cinj.org/zhenglab

We seek highly motivated individuals with a recent PhD degree in molecular cellular biology, cancer biology, pharmacology or other related biological sciences. Individuals with some experience with mouse models and/or bioinformatics are especially desired. Applicants should send a CV and names of three references to: zhengst@cinj.rutgers.edu
