The Ondrus Lab at Caltech (www.ondruslab.caltech.edu) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to join our interdisciplinary team in Chemical Biology, broadly defined.  We employ a variety of techniques, including chemical proteomics, CRISPR-based screens, structural biology, and organic chemistry to determine the specific roles of metabolites in cell signaling.  Our particular focus is on revealing the function of cholesterol-derived metabolites in the Hedgehog signaling pathway.  Accordingly, we are seeking candidates with strengths in the following areas: cell-based assays, proteomics, and/or organic synthesis.  Applicants must be well versed in cell signaling pathways or strongly motivated to expand into this field.  Additional roles include mentorship of junior graduate/undergraduate students and general lab/instrument maintenance.  Only applicants with US citizenship, a Permanent Visa, or a valid Temporary Visa will be considered.  To apply, please provide: 1) a cover letter, 2) a CV, 3) a specific area of interest, and 4) a brief summary of past work (no more than 2 pages).  Qualified candidates may inquire at ondruslab@caltech.edu for further information.
