Postdoc position in Cell Biology of Metals at the University of Maryland

Postdoctoral Scholar positions are available immediately for enthusiastic and driven scientists wishing to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying the metal homeostasis and signaling regulation in mice and C. elegans in the Kim Lab (, University of Maryland-College Park.

We seek talented applicants with a recent PhD with a strong background in genetics, molecular biology and cell biology, or closely related fields. Our primary research focuses on the mechanisms of metal ion (copper, zinc and iron) homeostasis and regulation at the molecular, cellular and organismal level. We employ yeast, cell culture as well as animal models (including mice and C. elegans), which allow us to answer critical questions about how metal uptake and distribution is regulated throughout the organism. The results of our research program directly impact on human health and disease.

Interested applicants should submit Curriculum Vitae including the names and contact information of three references to Byung-Eun Kim at
Preference will be given to those applicants who have recently earned their PhD.
