Postdoctoral position in the laboratory of Dr. Shangqin Guo

The lab of Shangqin Guo, Ph.D., Yale Stem Cell Center and Department of Cell Biology at Yale University School of Medicine is seeking inquisitive and dedicated minds to fulfill a postdoctoral position. 

We are interested in learning the cell fate decision processes: how does a cell know what to be and what not to be? We use three biological model systems to investigate this question. 1) Induced pluripotency (Yamanaka reprogramming). 2) Malignant transformation. 3) Hematopoietic stem cell emergence and maintenance. The long term goal of understanding the rules of cell fate decision making is to create desired cell types for cell replacement therapies and to eliminate the emergence of harmful cell types such as cancer.

Successful candidates should be highly self-motivated and have backgrounds in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics and genomics or other related fields. Individuals with background in stem cell biology or bioinformatics/computational biology are particularly encouraged to apply. A track record of publications is a strong plus. The Yale Stem Cell Center provides a stimulating and collaborative training environment, as well as cutting edge facilities. Interested applicants should send CV and contact information of three referees to:

Postdoctoral Position in the Yale in Microbial Electron Transfer via Conductive Proteins
Posting Date: June 2017

Postdoc fellowship at Yale in Microbial Electron Transfer via Conductive Proteins

Postdoc fellowship is immediately available in the laboratory of Prof. Nikhil Malvankar in the Molecular Biophysics & Biochemistry Department and interdisciplinary Microbial Sciences Institute at the Yale University’s new West Campus.

The overarching goal of our lab is to define the mechanisms by which microbes interact with and manipulate their environment, with the ultimate goal of engineering these interactions to control microbial pathophysiology and ecology. Our research is focused on how microbes use electron transfer via hair-like protein appendages called pili for communication, survival and biofilm formation. We have found out that common soil bacteria Geobacter use pili as “nanowires” with metallic-like conductivity for respiration (Nature Nano 2011) and to share energy (Science 2010). We have also developed a new charge imaging technique to visualize bacterial electron transfer via pili and cytochrome proteins (Nature Nano 2014). This field has seen a recent explosion of interest as a diversity of microbial species have been found to transfer electrons via pili and cytochromes (e.g. 4 articles in Nature 526 (2015) pg. 513, 531, 587, and Nature (2016).

The candidate will work on one or more of the following four major research themes of our lab:

1) Protein Structure:  We are identifying structural and molecular basis of electron transfer in conductive pili, building on our preliminary experimental and computational work suggesting closely packed aromatic amino acids in pili confer π-stacking and conductivity (mBio 2015).

2) Electronic Structure: We are elucidating the biochemical and biophysical mechanism of electron transfer in pili by applying various electrochemical and spectroscopic methods.

3) Conductivity Mechanism: Existing models of biological electron transfer cannot fully explain such high conductivity in proteins. We are building a new fundamental framework by performing conductivity measurements as a function of several physical and chemical probes. 

4) Host-pathogen Interaction: We are developing a new class of anti-microbial therapies by targeting microbial survival mechanisms during pili-mediated common bacterial infections.

We are looking for candidates with expertise in one of the following: site-directed mutagenesis, electron transfer in proteins or conducting polymers, membrane protein purification; cultivation of BSL2 level bacterial pathogens and their mammalian host cells. This experimental position also presents extensive collaborative opportunities with computational and clinical scientists.

For more information visit http://malvankarlab.yale.edu/

The candidate is expected to have a PhD degree or equivalent. Our research is multidisciplinary and we encourage candidates from different backgrounds. Applicants should be highly self-motivated and have potential to become independent researchers in academia or industry.

Candidates should send an email to postdoc@malvankarlab.org with the following materials (submitted as one combined PDF file):

1. A cover letter (no longer than 2 pages) describing your past and present research projects as they relate to above research in our lab and your career goals.

2. A document (no longer than 1 page) describing how you plan to contribute to our lab.

3. CV.

Endowed Fellowship-funded Postdoctoral position 2017

A fellowship-funded postdoctoral fellow position is available jointly in the Hattangadi and Kupfer Laboratories at Yale Medical School.  We are seeking a highly motivated recent doctoral graduate to drive an exciting burgeoning research project involving the chromatin dynamics of terminal red blood cell nuclear maturation. A joint project between the two labs focuses on the role of the gene codanin in the pathophysiology of congenital dyserythropoietic anemia (CDA), a disorder where normal nuclear maturation of early precursors is defective. We also study the role of chromatin dynamics in normal blood development.

The Hattangadi and Kupfer Labs are adjacent to one another, and foster an interdisciplinary and highly dynamic environment, being in both the Yale Cancer Center and Yale Stem Cell Center, and a member of the Yale Cooperative Center for Excellence in Hematology (YCCEH) with access to state-of-the-art technology cores in each of these centers. This postdoctoral position will provide unique training experiences in hematopoietic stem cell development, chromatin dynamics and epigenetics, and innovative imaging modalities.  There will also be opportunities for career development training and mentorship to help the candidate progress to a career as an independent researcher, including collaborative opportunities with other labs at Yale and chances to present research findings at national meetings.

The ideal candidates must hold a recent PhD or MD/PhD degree and be a passionate, highly motivated, team-oriented researcher capable of working independently and communicating effectively in a fast-paced setting.  Candidates should have solid experience and first-author publications in molecular biology, genomics, chromatin biology, or stem cell biology. Preference will be given to individuals with hands-on experience in genomic techniques such as CHIP, CHART, and data analysis. Fluency in English is required.  US residency status is not required, however, a prestigious fellowship funded position is also available for US citizens/greencard holders.
