Postdoctoral Fellow position in Translational Research in cancer or neurodegenerative diseases is available immediately in a multidisciplinary team composed of chemists, biochemists, radiochemists/molecular imaging, cell and molecular biologists, computational biologists.

These efforts will be conducted in collaboration with scientists and clinicians at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Weill Cornell Medical College and Medical University of South Carolina.

State-of-the-art environment and resources are available for research and study.

Our research is based on understanding and studying maladaptive alterations in protein networks induced upon cellular stress. Our ultimate goal is to translate such knowledge into therapeutics and diagnostics (http://www.samustherapeutics.com/ and
