One or two postdocs positions are open for a newly established laboratory. We are interested in the molecular mechanism underlying cell adhesion and migration, and how these would relate to embryogenesis, wound healing, and human diseases such as cancer metastasis. Our current major focus is to investigate how type Igamma phosphatidylinositol phosphate kinase (PIPKIgamma), which generates phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate, regulates cell adhesion and migration, and participates in the relevant life events. Multidisciplinary approaches including molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, and genetics are used to address our research objectives. The postdoctoral fellow(s) will join several ongoing projects to define the role of PIPKIgamma in cancer metastasis, angiogenesis, and wound healing.
Ph.D. degree in cell biology, biochemistry, or equivalent is required. Experience of fluorescence live imaging or mouse model will be preferred. Please electronically send a CV and three references to
