Position Description: Cell biology and enzymology of Arf GTPase-activating proteins

One postdoctoral position is available immediately in the Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Biology, Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services. The fellow in this position will participate in a multi-discipline program focused on understanding the function and regulation of Arf GTPase-activating proteins. Several Arf GAPs, including ASAP1, ASAP2 and ARAP2 regulate focal adhesions and control cell migration ASAP1 also associates with invadopodia, stuctures that mediate invasion of cancer cells. Enzymology, biochemistry and imaging techniques, including confocal and total internal reflection microscopy, will be used to determine molecular mechanisms underlying Arf GAP control of the formation and turnover of these structures.

Candidates interested in this position should send a cover letter, CV including bibliography and contact information for three references to Paul A. Randazzo, MD, PhD, LCMB, NCI, Building 37 Room 2042, Bethesda, MD 20892, e-mail:
