Postdoctoral Position (Cell Biology)

--Weill Cornell Medicine - Qatar--

Postdoctoral Associate Position

In a pioneering international initiative, Cornell University and Weill Cornell Medical College established Weill Cornell Medicine - Qatar (WCM-Q) in 2001 through a unique partnership with the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science, and Community Development. 

WCM-Q seeks candidates for a postdoctoral associate position in the Machaca Lab to study the regulation of Calcium signaling during normal physiology and pathological conditions.

The Machaca Lab invites applications for a postdoctoral position to study the impact of Calcium signaling deregulation in health and disease. We are particularly interested in the roles of store-operated calcium entry (SOCE) and calcium tunneling at the whole organismal levels. The ideal candidate would have extensive expertise in cell biology and imaging. Expertise in mouse studies is needed as well.
