GNAS Imprinting and Role of the G Protein Gs-alpha in Metabolic Regulation
Closing Date: None
GNAS is a complex imprinted gene with multiple gene products including the stimulatory G protein Gs-alpha which is the underlying disease gene for several disorders of hormone signaling. Our laboratory studies the mechanisms of GNAS and Gs-alpha imprinting in mouse models and in patients with GNAS imprinting defects. We are also studying the role of Gs-alpha and other GNAS gene products in metabolic regulation using several germline and tissue-specific Gnas knockout mouse models. Applications are invited from individuals of the highest caliber who have obtained a Ph.D., or M.D. degree within the last 5 years. Salary and benefits will be commensurate with the experience of the applicant. Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae, list of publications, a letter stating their interests and the names of three references to Dr. Lee S. Weinstein, (firstname.lastname@example.org).
