Using Genetic Screens to Identify Metabolic Cell Membrane Receptors

Application deadline closed.

Job Description

The research in the Bielczyk-Maczynska lab (https://ebm-lab.org) focuses on (1) the identification of cell membrane receptors that regulate metabolism and (2) understanding their physiological function and role in disease pathology. We use a combination of cell culture and mouse models to conduct functional genetics screens and to identify the role of candidate receptors. Several ongoing projects are available to fit the interests of trainees and help them achieve their career goals. Primary responsibilities include designing and executing experiments to test specific hypotheses, analyzing data, writing manuscripts, and giving scientific presentations.
