Science jobs from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York :
Cell competition recognizes and eliminates abnormal cells during development and is thought to occur in cancer (Current Biology 2011 vol 21 pp R11-15). Our group has identified genes involved in cell competition by means of genetic screens in Drosophila. Our current goal is to characterize the roles of these genes at the molecular and cellular level using genetic, molecular genetic, and biochemical approaches to identify and characterize mechanisms that recognize and eliminate cells with imbalances in ribosomal proteins.

The ideal candidate should be highly motivated with experience in protein biochemistry, genetics, molecular genetics, live imaging of tissues, or in Drosophila genetics.
