Job Summary 

A Post-Doctoral position is available immediately in the Biology Department of the College of Arts and Sciences.  The position is funded by an NIH grant, to study how signaling pathways that sense endoplasmic reticulum stress are integrated during cell differentiation and under pathological conditions such as neurological disease. More specifically, this is a joint project between the Gidalevitz lab at Drexel and the Argon lab at CHOP. The goal is to explore, using genetic and cell biological models, how the dynamics of the IRE1/XBP1 and PERK/eIF2a pathways change during sensory neuronal development and neurodegeneration (Klabonski et al., PLoS Gen. 2016), or differentiation of antibody (Gaudette et al., Nature Comm. 2020) or insulin-secreting cells (Eletto, D., et al. FASEB J, 2016), and how they are modulated by proteostatic stress conditions. Future projects in the lab will use screenings of chemical libraries and forward and reverse genetics in cell culture, mouse, and C. elegans models. Energetic applicants with strong experimental background in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology and/or genetics are encouraged to apply. Experience with primary neuronal cultures is a plus.

Essential Functions 

  • Study how signaling pathways that sense endoplasmic reticulum stress are integrated during cell differentiation and under pathological conditions such as neurological disease.
  • Conduct projects in the lab using screenings of chemical libraries and forward and reverse genetics in cell culture, mouse, and C. elegans models.
  • Work independently in executing experiments and analyzing data, as well as being organized and maintaining an up-to-date notebook that details all experimentation.
  • Other related duties as assigned.

Required Qualifications 

  • PhD or Doctorate in Biology or another STEM field
  • 5 years of relevant experience in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology, and/or genetics
  • Strong organizational and communications skills 

Preferred Qualifications 

  • Strong experimental background in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology and/or genetics.
  • Experience with primary neuronal cultures 

Physical Demands 

  • Typically standing at a desk/table
  • Typically standing, walking 

Location
