The Department of Biomedical Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine seeks candidates for a Research Associate position in the Academic Support Staff. This appointment will initially be for one (1) year and continuation during that time period and renewal are based on satisfactory performance and availability of funding (limited to three (3) years).

This position is for a Ph.D. level scientist to study the biological role of a newly characterized posttranslational modification, protein arginylation, that has been demonstrated to play key roles in actin cytoskeleton and mouse development. Approaches involving biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, live cell imaging, and mouse genetics are used separately and in combination to uncover the role of arginylation in the function of intracellular protein targets, with focus on cytoskeleton, cell motility, and signaling.

A successful candidate has to have at least 3 years experience working in the field, and demonstrate ability to plan, carry out, and interpret experiments, as well as prepare publications and presentations.
