Job Description

Position Description

A Postdoc Fellow position is available at The Yeh Laboratory at CSHL Cancer Center. We are recruiting new members passionate about drug discovery and chemical biology. Our lab is working to understand the molecular mechanisms leading to efficient elicitation of tumor vulnerability for potent cancer targeting. We develop Targeted Protein Degradation (TPD) therapeutic strategies to abrogate or rewire cancer cell signaling. We have recently established a new discovery platform to expand the landscape of TPD E3 ligases and targeting modalities beyond conventional small molecules (Genes & Development (2022) 36:1031-1042.; Genes & Development (2023) 37: 1-17).  For this open position, the project direction will be focused on continuing developing and validating novel TPD molecules to target undruggable proteins. The Yeh Lab is a highly-collaborative environment with state-of-the-art facilities and expertise in biotherapeutics engineering and chemical biology. We feature multidiscipline approaches to tackle scientific questions. The Yeh Lab also engages in several close collaborations with other research groups at the Cancer Center. This postdoc fellow will be part of a new Chemical Biology initiative at CSHL and will enjoy the highly intellectual and collaborative interactions at CSHL, including accessing CSHL conferences on cutting edge scientific discoveries. 

PhD candidates expecting to complete by 2024 are encouraged to apply. Candidates with expertise in organic synthesis, peptide/ natural product/macrocycle chemistry, or chemical biology related to medicinal chemistry are highly desired.
