Bart Williams’ Laboratory in the Center for Skeletal Disease and Tumor Metastasis has an NIH grant-funded position available for one Postdoctoral Fellow.
The Williams Laboratory studies the role(s) of Wnt signaling in development and disease. The laboratory is focused on the generation and characterization of genetically engineered mouse models to facilitate the assessment of the roles of Wnt signaling components during skeletal development and disease processes. We are particularly interested in deciphering the mechanisms by which specific Wnt proteins interact with receptor complexes to mediate signaling.
This postdoctoral position is available immediately for a motivated PhD graduate who meets the qualifications and description outlined below.
A Ph.D. (or equivalent degree) with experience and publications in the fields of development, cellular, or molecular biology
Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) provides postdoctoral training opportunities to scientists continuing their research careers. The fellowships are to help promising scientists advance their knowledge and research experience and at the same time support the research endeavors of VARI under the mentorship of a VARI Faculty member.
While this project is currently funded, an integral part of postdoctoral training and professional development is the process of preparing a research proposal and writing a fellowship application. All VARI Postdoctoral Fellows are encouraged to apply for external funding as soon as it is practical and reasonable after hire.
