The Hauf Lab at Virginia Tech (www.hauflab.org) is looking for up to three highly motivated Postdoctoral Associates in the technical areas of molecular biology, biochemistry and quantitative cell biology. The laboratory works on exciting projects that address the molecular basis of reliable cell division using fission yeast as model organism. We are looking for ambitious, creative and smart colleagues, whose experience enriches our team.
One position focuses on the role of ubiquitination in establishing order in mitotic exit. The project will involve biochemical techniques (protein purification, in vitro assays, pull-downs, immunoblots, etc.) as well as cell biological methods (yeast molecular genetics and live-cell imaging). An ideal candidate for this position will have strong expertise in biochemistry.
The second position focuses on the identification of mechanisms that ensure the proper timing of mitotic events. This project will extensively rely on yeast molecular genetics, high-end live cell imaging, and will involve close collaboration with computational biologists. Candidates should have strong expertise in imaging and image analysis.
The third position focuses on the dissection of the gene expression network underlying mitotic checkpoint signaling. Ideal candidates for this position will have considerable experience in molecular biology. Additional techniques will include CRISPR/Cas9-mediated genome engineering, single-molecule mRNA FISH as well as quantitative fluorescence microscopy.
For specific inquiries please contact Silke Hauf, firstname.lastname@example.org.
