A postdoctoral position for an outstanding and highly motivated candidate is available in the Jenny lab in the Department of Developmental and Molecular Biology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. One of our laboratory’s focuses is the characterization of the regulation and physiological roles of Endosomal Microautophagy (eMI). eMI is a form of autophagy selective  for  soluble,  KFERQ-motif  containing  substrates,  for  which  we  recently  have developed a genetic system (Mukherjee et al., Autophagy, 2016). More information can be found at

Recent PhD graduates are preferred. Qualified individuals must have strong laboratory expertise in Drosophila genetics or the fields of Wnt signaling or autophagy and first author publications in peer-reviewed journals. Ability to work independently, demonstrated creativity and very high motivation are expected. Applicants should send a CV and a description of research interests and experience, clearly stating why they wish to join the Jenny laboratory, together with the contact information for three references to

The candidate’s research will benefit from a lively and friendly atmosphere and a strong tradition of collaboration within the College. Albert Einstein College of Medicine is situated in the Bronx, one of the five boroughs of New York City and offers ready access to the cultural and recreational opportunities in Manhattan and the greater New York area.
