Postdoctoral position available in Vojo Deretic’s (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vojo_Deretic ) group at the NIH-funded AIM center (https://www.autophagy.center/). The AIM center is a biomedical research excellence center for autophagy, inflammation and metabolism at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, USA; see editorial in Autophagy, 2018, 14, 925-929. Dr. Deretic’s group is working on autophagy in fundamental and disease contexts in mammalian and human cells and animal models. The position is to work on intersections between organellar membrane homeostasis, autophagy response to membrane damage, and will involve studies on metabolism and secretory autophagy as well. Details of the project can be glimpsed form the published studies, for example Jia et al., Molecular Cell 2018, 70, 120-135. Please contact Dr. Deretic directly by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to explore possibilities and further details.
