A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Bernadette Holdener at Stony Brook University. Research in the Holdener lab is focused on understanding the role of O-linked fucosylation on a class of proteins containing thrombospondin type 1 repeats (TSRs). TSR containing proteins are primarily secreted or membrane-linked and play critical roles in regulating properties of the extracellular matrix and regulating cell-matrix interactions. Projects in the lab are focused on understanding how mutations in mouse B3glct lead to craniofacial and skeletal abnormalities and hydrocephalus, with a focus on identifying TSR-containing proteins affected by the mutation and evaluating the effects of the mutation on the organization of the extracellular matrix and signaling. Candidates should have a strong background in cell or developmental biology with expertise in molecular biology, immunolocalization of proteins, and imaging. Experience with mouse genetics is valuable but not essential.
