Work type: Regular full time
Location: Stratford, New Jersey
Categories: Pre/Post-Doctoral

The laboratory represents two joined labs with diverse projects, a friendly and scientifically vibrant atmosphere, enthusiastic staff and is ran by two active PIs:

https://som.rowan.edu/research/basicscience/cellbiology/facultybios/shcherbik.html

https://som.rowan.edu/research/basicscience/cellbiology/facultybios/pestov.html

Several lines of investigation are currently open to choose from:

1)       To understand the molecular alterations that occur on a ribosome during stress and to examine how modified ribosomes behave  during translation in vitro  and in cells. These projects might result in new supportive data on ribosome heterogeneity.

2)           To study effects of mitochondrial communication with translational apparatus (i.e. ribosomes) under different physiological settings.

3)           Co-translational protein quality control: does it work beyond 60S subunit?

4)           Investigation of ribosome degradation pathways.

The lab established active collaborations with GSU, Georgia Tech, SUNY, Emory University, Vanderbilt University and Temple University.

Our lab is very active. We publish routinely, participate in multiple collaborative projects outside Rowan-SOM, present our data at the scientific symposiums and conferences locally, domestically and internationally. We support postdocs' initiatives in getting more experience outside the bench, such as building a teaching portfolio, developing scientific networking, activities within a community. We help postdocs in achieving academic progress by teaching them grant/fellowship writing, manuscripts and posters preparation. We guarantee you that by the end of this postdoctoral training you will become a well-rounded professional with plethora of future opportunities.

Position requires a Ph.D. (or equivalent) in Molecular Biology or a related field. Preference will be given to candidates with the experience in yeast cell biology and/or biochemistry. Experience in high-throughput technologies (RNA-seq, ribosome profiling) is not necessary but highly desirable. The candidate must have a strong publication record, written and verbal communication skills, sound analytical and organizational skills, and ability to work independently as well as collaboratively.

The successful candidate will join an interactive environment of Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine (Rowan-SOM, the former University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, UMDNJ) with multiple laboratories investigating important questions in molecular/cellular biology utilizing yeast, worm and mammalian systems. The University offers state of the art facilities including Mass Spectroscopy, Next Generation sequencing, Microscopy facility. In addition, Rowan-SOM offers help in a future career planning/building, including teaching opportunities (if desirable), iJOBs seminars, Career Development Workshop and others.

Rowan-SOM is located in Stratford, a suburban south New Jersey community with an easy commute by train or car to Center City Philadelphia. This location combines and an affordable living environment, good school district, multiple child-care facilities. Due to close location to scientific hubs of Philadelphia, Rowan-SOM gives the opportunity to collaborate with scientists at the University of Pennsylvania, Thomas Jefferson University, Temple University, Drexel University and the Fox Chase Cancer Center. To apply, please send a single pdf file, consisting of a one-page motivation letter, CV, publication list and the names and contact information of three references to Dr. Natalia Shcherbik at: shcherna@rowan.edu or nshcherb@gmail.com.
