Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Tulane University School of Medicine

Associate or Full Professor

 

The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Tulane University School of Medicine is seeking applications for a tenure track faculty position (rank subject to review) at the rank of Associate or Full Professor. The Department seeks outstanding investigators employing a combination of biochemistry, molecular biology, biophysics and animal models to investigate basic mechanisms contributing to human health and disease. Attention will be paid particularly to applicants whose areas of research emphasize mechanisms of renal function and kidney disease and cancer metabolism, helping to complement and strengthen existing research areas within the Department and the wider School of Medicine.

 

Successful applicants are expected to have and continue to develop a strong, extramurally-funded research program. Responsibilities will include supervising and mentoring students and postdoctoral fellows and contributing to the educational mission of the university. Successful applicants will establish productive collaborations with members of the Department, Tulane University and the New Orleans research communities.

 

Qualifications include a PhD and/or MD (or equivalent).

 

Interested candidates should upload the following: cover letter, curriculum vitae, short (2-3 page) description of current and proposed research.  Please submit this application to the following Interfolio website:  apply.interfolio.com/53369

Postdoctoral Fellow

           

A postdoctoral research position is available to study macrophage-driven signaling pathways that regulate premalignant progression to invasive breast cancer. Studies include understanding how the microenvironment promotes cell invasion during breast cancer initiation. Several mouse models, xenograft models, and cell culture models will be used. The postdoctoral fellow will conduct independent experiments, which includes experimental design, data collection and interpretation, presenting data and national meetings, manuscript preparation, and writing of a postdoctoral grant.

 

Minimum Qualifications:

                       

Research experience in the areas of cell culture, cell-based assays, RNA and protein analysis, flow cytometry, and basic molecular biology techniques.

Minimum Education                       

Ph.D. or equivalent

 

Preferred Qualifications:

                       

1.  Experience with rodent models, including xenografts and mammary gland transplantation.

2.  Experience and knowledge in the fields of cell signaling, mammary gland biology, and breast cancer biology.

3.  Experience in manuscript review and grant writing.

4.  At least one first author research paper in a peer-reviewed journal.

Postdoctoral Fellow

           

The Postdoctoral Fellow for the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will be responsible for studying the biochemical and molecular mechanisms underlying the regulations of the p53-MDM2 loop, mutant p53s, and the c-Myc pathway in response to various signals and to identify small molecules that can suppress tumor growth by re-activating p53 activity in human cancer cells and mouse tumor model systems including genetically manipulated mouse models, such as p53-null, MDM2-C305/MDM4-3SA double knockin, CCDC3-null, TA-p63-null, PHLDB3-null, and p53-R249S knockin mouse models.

 

Minimum Qualifications:

                       

Research experience in biochemistry, enzymology, protein biochemistry, and molecular and cellular biology, mouse tumor models, and mouse genetics.

 

Minimum Education:

                       

Ph.D. or M.D., within 6 months of hiring.
