Postdoctoral on Nutrient Sensing and Signaling USA 767 views1 application

Seeking enthusiastic and motivated, postdoctoral fellows to study mechanisms of nutrient sensing and signaling, funding for these positions for at least one year, with the expectation of continued support. This is an excellent opportunity to establish an independent project on a novel problem.

Glucose fuels life, and organisms have evolved sophisticated mechanisms for sensing and responding to this key nutrient. This is especially apparent in the yeast S. cerevisiae, which has several ways of sensing the widely varying amounts of glucose it encounters during its lifetime.

We are studying a novel glucose signal transduction pathway that begins with glucose sensors in the membrane and ends at a transcription factor in the nucleus. We can trace the glucose signal from the cell surface all the way to the nucleus, and we are poised to come to a true understanding of how this novel signal transduction pathway works. Our studies extend to the pathogenic yeast C. albicans because it offers an informative evolutionary comparison, and because this central signaling pathway may provide therapeutic targets.

Motivated, curious and independent individuals interested in joining me in Denver should send (preferably by e-mail) a letter of inquiry stating research interests along with a CV. University of Colorado Denver
