A postdoctoral position is available in the Benanti laboratory at the University of Massachusetts Medical School to study molecular mechanisms that regulate cell growth and division. The lab is interested in many aspects of cell cycle control including: understanding how the cell cycle-regulatory transcription factor network is rewired in response to environmental signals, investigating how changes in chromosome structure are coordinated with cell cycle progression, and identifying targets of ubiquitin ligases and deubiquitinating enyzmes whose functions impact the cell cycle. To address these questions, we utilize a number of molecular, genetic, cell, and systems biology approaches in both yeast and human cells.
Candidates must be highly motivated and technically accomplished, and should have a recent Ph.D. in cell biology, molecular biology, genetics or related area of study.
To apply, please send a letter (via email) describing your current research activities and future research interests, a CV, and contact information for three references to Jennifer Benanti at firstname.lastname@example.org.
