The Gupta Lab at the Yale School of Medicine is hiring!We are looking for postdoctoral researchers who want to study how membrane, as well as membrane associated, transient protein complexes regulate cellular signaling pathways.
In the crowded membrane environment, membrane proteins form dynamic and transient complexes with other soluble and membrane proteins, lipids and various other chemical regulators, which in turn govern cellular physiology. Building on and combining our recent groundbreaking work in native mass spectrometry with a large numbers of experimental and theoretical approaches, the lab provides a top down deconstructive vantage point to address this problem. Our unique approach enables us to detect membrane protein complexes directly from the native environment while identifying novel interacting partners and subsequently track their spatiotemporal progression. We simultaneously apply these cutting-edge platforms to dynamic macro-molecular membrane associated systems in order to delineate the molecular mechanisms behind various cellular signaling pathways. Some of our interests lie in, but are not limited to, understanding vesicular transport, membrane trafficking, secondary metabolite transport and apoptotic signal transduction.
For a more comprehensive account of our work, methods, and ideas, head to https://medicine.yale.edu/lab/gupta/kallol_gupta.profileThe Lab has multiple postdoctoral positions available at present.
What we are looking for:
• Expertise in any branch of Biomedical, Chemical and Engineering Sciences.
• Expertise in membrane protein expression and purification from various cellular systems is an asset.
• Prior MS expertise is NOT required. If we hire you, we will train you.
Interested researchers can send their CV with their prospective research interests and the contact details of three to five referees, to Kallol Gupta (Kallol.email@example.com), Department of Cell Biology, Yale School of Medicine.
