POSTDOC POSITION in Cell Signaling

Postdoctoral position is available in laboratory of Pavel Krejci, to study various aspects of Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) signaling in disease. Current focus is on non-canonical FGF signaling pathways, differential signaling of FGF-receptors, and development of treatment for skeletal dysplasias caused by aberrant FGFR signaling. While our primary interest is the FGF pathway, projects on the entire RTK family are also running in the lab.
