Postdoctoral Fellowship Positions are immediately available within the Vanderbilt University Epithelial Biology Center. The Center is dedicated to the multi-disciplinary study of intra- and extra-cellular trafficking and signaling, establishment and maintenance of epithelial polarity, and role of intestinal stem cells in health and disease. Positions are immediately available in NIH-funded research programs to:
- characterize gastrointestinal stem cells and their role in mouse and human neoplasia. Mouse work will be facilitated using newly developed compartment-selective Cre drivers;
- advance the recent discovery that EGF receptor ligands signal via exosomes and that mutant KRAS affects the protein and RNA composition and behavior of exosomes.
Individuals with prior experience in exosomal trafficking and function, mouse modeling, trafficking in polarized epithelial cells, and/or high resolution microscopy are especially encouraged to apply.
Salaries commensurate with previous training. Send CVs to Robert J. Coffey, MD, at firstname.lastname@example.org
