Position Detail

The Lee Lab has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow to work on the mechanism of Wnt signal transduction. We are particularly interested in mechanistically oriented individuals with a background in biochemistry and working with cultured cells. Individuals with protein and microscopy experience are highly encouraged to apply.

Cell and Developmental Biology

The Wnt pathway plays key roles in development and human disease. The Lee Lab is interested in deciphering the basic mechanism of Wnt signal transduction and using this information to provide insight into Wnt-driven disease processes. Our previous work has identified new targets for developing drugs against the Wnt pathway as well as new insight into it role in cancer. The approaches used in the Lee lab are broad and include biochemistry, chemical biology, and cell biology. 

We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow who will work on characterizing new Wnt genes identified in our screens as well as ongoing projects in the lab. Generally, fellows are able to take their projects with them to initiate their own programs should they apply for a faculty position. Previous individuals in the lab have made successful transitions into tenure-track academic faculty and biotech positions.

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow with a PhD, who have recently graduated and have a history of publication.  Please contact Ethan Lee, MD, PhD, for more information.
