Postdoctoral positions in X-ray crystallography/cryo-EM and cell biology to study centrosome-associated cancers
Position Description: A postdoctoral fellowship is available to study the molecular basis of how the centrosome is organized in a 3D space and how HIV and other virus-encoded proteins hijack the centrosome duplication machinery and induce aneuploidy and cancer development. The primary focus will be on determining the structures of multiple complexes that we have identified from our recent unpublished studies. The ultimate goal of this research is to investigate the etiology of centrosome abnormality-associated cancers or other human disorders and to design novel strategies to tackle them. Related to this project, we are also taking biochemical and cell biological approaches, including super-resolution imaging, single molecule tracking, and in vitro reconstitution, to delineate the mechanisms governing Polo-like kinase 4 and 1 (Plk4/Plk1) functionality on the centrosomal architecture, the deregulation of which can lead to the development of various human diseases, including cancers.

Fellows who have an expertise in the field of X-ray crystallography/cryo-EM or cell biology with a keen interest in learning about the organization of the centrosome and their abnormalities in human disorders are encouraged to apply. Applicants should have a Ph.D. (or expected to receive a Ph.D.) or M.D. equivalent at the time of joining the lab and have achieved the degree less than 3 years ago.
To apply, please send CV and three names of references to Dr. Kyung Lee (firstname.lastname@example.org ). Starts at $62,900 for fellows with 0 yr postdoc training (+ annual raise) and full health insurance
