Regulation of Eukaryotic Cell Growth by Polyamines
Posted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2017-Oct-13
A postdoctoral or PostBac IRTA position is available to study the molecular mechanisms by which intracellular magnesium is regulated by polyamines. Polyamine and magnesium are vital in the regulation of macromolecular synthesis in eukaryotic cells. In the yeast S. cerevisiae, there seems to be a reciprocal interplay between magnesium and polyamines in the regulation of cell growth. We are investigating the mechanism/molecular basis of the interactions of their pathways in yeast as well as in mammalian cells.
Highly motivated applicants (with BS, MS or Ph.D degree) with research experience in yeast and a strong background in molecular biology, biochemistry, yeast genetics and/or cell biology is desired.
Interested candidates should submit their curriculum vitae, a detailed letter of interest, and contact information of three referees to Dr. Myung Hee Park (NIDCR, NIH) at mhparknih.gov
