The laboratory of Sarah Goetz at Duke University School of Medicine, Department of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology is inviting applications for a postdoctoral researcher.
Our group studies the biology of the primary cilium, an essential organelle that mediates critical intracellular signaling pathways. We are working to identify the signaling pathways that control the assembly of primary cilia, as well as to define the roles of cilia in embryonic development and in human diseases. We use cell culture as well as mouse models to explore these questions.
Ideal candidates will be accomplished, highly motivated, and creative scientists with a recent Ph.D. in the life sciences (less than 2 years of postdoctoral experience is strongly preferred), or who anticipate completion of their degree prior to starting the position. Applicants should email a brief cover letter describing research accomplishments and future research goals, current CV with list of publications, and contact information for 3 professional references to:
