Our lab is growing and we have many open positions to fill. We encourage enthusiastic scientists of all levels to apply.
The Alon lab strives to provide a healthy, inclusive, and fun work environment.
We value a collaborative approach to science and strong mentorship.
The Alon lab at Yale Medical School has openings for outstanding recently graduated scientists who are excited about our research. We seek individuals with a passion for research and a strong background in biochemistry, structural (cryo-EM, x-ray), molecular or cell biology
We are focused on gaining mechanistic insights into the activation, signaling, and ligand recognition of understudied and interesting membrane receptors for sterol signaling molecules
We apply a multidisciplinary approach, combining structural biology, biophysics, pharmacology, drug discovery, and cell biology
Candidates must have a PhD degree or equivalent in biological sciences with not more than 1 year of postdoctoral training. Interested candidates should have training and experience in two or more of the following:
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, CV, a 1-page research summary, and contact information for three references to Dr. Assaf Alon (email@example.com)
We accept graduate students through the Biological and Biomedical Sciences (BBS) program. The lab is affiliated with the Biochemistry, Quantitative Biology, Biophysics and Structural Biology (BQBS) track as well as the Translational Molecular Medicine, Pharmacology, and Physiology (TMMPP) track.
Students who are interested in rotating in the lab are encouraged to contact Assaf via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Alon lab starting in the Department of Pharmacology at Yale Medical School and has an opening for outstanding and passionate post-grad scientists interested in opportunities to gain research experience.
The main goal of the Alon Lab is to gain new mechanistic insights into the function of membrane receptors for sterol hormones and other signaling molecules. We use a combination of structural biology, biochemistry, and pharmacology to study various understudied and interesting membrane protein targets.
Candidates should be self-motivated and be able to carry out experiments independently. Candidates will analyze results, and with guidance from the principal investigator design follow-up experiments. Candidates are also expected to support the maintenance and organization of the lab. The successful applicant will work closely with Dr. Alon and there will be ample learning and growth opportunities for those interested in biomedical research. We are seeking candidates who can provide at least a 1-year commitment.
Please send a cover letter describing interest in the position, CV, two reference letters, and transcript (unofficial transcript if candidate has not yet graduated) to Dr. Alon by email
We have openings for students interested in learning to do research
Undergraduate summer projects are available
Please apply through the STARS program
