Job Description

The [Please click the Apply button for the link or email] ( at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX is recruiting postdoc candidates with a strong passion for basic scientific research to join a growing team studying metabolic signaling in health and disease. 

Our question: how do metabolites function as signaling molecules independent of their metabolic pathways?

Metabolites accumulate during diseases such as cancer, infection, and inflammation. Their roles as metabolic substrates have been studied for over a century. While most studies have focused on their known roles as metabolic substrates in cancer and diseases, we propose that, independent of their metabolic pathways, metabolites are critical signaling molecules for cell-cell communication. Using questions guided by human patient data, we conduct hypothesis-driven research through a combination of in vitro and in vivo models. We collaborate with biochemists and structural biologists to develop new methods to study protein-metabolite and RNA-metabolite interactions.

Candidates must have passion for basic scientific discovery and strong work ethic, ideally with expertise in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, chemistry, or RNA biology.
