Reconstituting the Events of MitosisPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2018-Sep-21
Postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Alexander Kelly at the National Cancer Institute. The Kelly lab combines biochemistry, biophysics and quantitative cell biology to study the molecular mechanisms that control the equal segregation of chromosomes during mitosis. A major focus of the lab is understanding how centromeres and kinetochores are assembled, and how errors in kinetochore-microtubule attachment are sensed and corrected. Other projects in the lab seek to elucidate the mechanisms regulating the assembly of the mitotic spindle and the condensation of chromosomes.Qualifications:
We are looking for candidates with strong backgrounds in biochemistry, biophysics, or cell biology who are interested in developing independent projects. Experience in advanced microscopy, protein biochemistry, chromatin, or the cytoskeleton is desirable but not required. The position includes salary, travel, and full health benefits. Candidates should preferably have less than 3 years of postdoctoral experience.To Apply:
Please send a CV, along with the contact information of three references to alexander.kellynih.gov. Please include your past research accomplishments and areas that interest you for your postdoctoral work.
