We are recruiting several goal-oriented, creative, collaborative, and highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellows, with expertise in cell and molecular biology and/or genomics to join the Mount Sinai Bone Program headed by Dr. Mone Zaidi. The Postdoctoral Fellows will be engaged in basic and translational research projects focused on pituitary hormones, bone and body fat regulation. These new positions have arisen due to the award of a new NIH U19 grant to study FSH effects on bone and body composition during aging. Please refer to the following publications:
1. Ji, Y., et al., Epitope-specific monoclonal antibodies to FSHbeta increase bone mass. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2018, 115(9):2192-2197.
2. Liu, P., et al., Blocking FSH induces thermogenic adipose tissue and reduces body fat. Nature, 2017, 546(7656):107-112.
Candidates should have a M.D. and/or Ph.D. degree in medicine, biology, biochemistry, chemistry or a related field in biomedical sciences. Working experience in mouse genetics, antibody purification, bone or fat biology, or large-scale dataset analysis using programming languages would be an advantage. Additionally, the Postdoctoral Fellow should be keen to learn, be highly motivated, work well with others and immerse himself/herself in the ongoing research of the laboratory. In addition, the potential candidate must have strong oral and written communication skills and be eager to present research results at national meetings.
It is a full time appointment initially for 1 year, renewable annually contingent upon satisfactory performance. Applicants who are interested in this position should email the following documents to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
1) Statement of research interests and career goals 2) Curriculum vitae including bibliography 3) Names and contact information of three references.
