Research Specialist II, Biochemistry, Cellular & Molecular Biology - 17000000G6
Pay Grade: 36
The Das Lab in the Department of Biochemistry & Cellular and Molecular Biology seek a motivated, goal-oriented, individual to fill the position of Research Specialist I. Responsibilities involve routine lab maintenance, data collection, interpretation, and documentation to support laboratory/research-related activities. The Das lab is interested in the organization of cytokinetic events using fission yeast, S. pombe as a model system. Currently our research focuses on unraveling spatiotemporal activation patterns of small Rho and Cdc42 GTPases during cytokinesis and investigating how spatiotemporal activation of small GTPases organizes different cytokinetic events. More details about the research are available in our recent publication in Molecular Biology of the Cell (http://www.molbiolcell.org/content/27/8/1235.full). The lab is well equipped with a dedicated 2-D array confocal microscope. Research approaches mainly used in the lab include yeast genetics, live-cell imaging, protein dynamics, quantitative microscopy, and mathematical modeling approaches.
