Appointment Status Non-Tenure Track
Department IU Bloomington Biochemistry
Position Summary

Applicants should be interested in understanding the mechanistic functions of DNA helicases and associated proteins in the maintenance of genome integrity. The Bochman has ongoing projects focusing on: 1) defining the pathways of Fanconi Anemia-independent DNA inter-strand crosslink (ICL) repair, 2) the roles of RecQ and PIF1 family helicases in maintaining telomere length homeostasis, and 3) how post-translational modifications (PTMs) affect PIF1 helicase activities. The lab utilizes a variety of techniques in-house and through ongoing collaborations, including in vitro biochemistry, yeast genetics, next-generation sequencing, mass spectrometry, structural biology, click chemistry, and single-molecule biochemistry.

The postdoctoral researcher will have his/her choice of projects in the three areas listed above, access to hands-on experimental training from Dr. Bochman, his lab, and his collaborators, mentoring for fellowship applications and paper writing, and opportunities to mentor younger researchers.

Basic Qualifications
