We are seeking a highly motivated scientist interested in single-molecule biophysics. The successful candidate will work on a new NIH sponsored project (R01: 2018-2022) to apply two complementary single-molecule imaging techniques (atomic force microscopy and fluorescence imaging) to study cohesin protein DNA binding and their interactions with shelterin proteins. Completion of this project will signficantly advance our understanding of aging and cancer development by observing protein action in real time and at the single-molecule level. The successful candidate will be immersed in a multi-disciplinary environment and coordinate experiments with a number of collaborators (Patricia Opresko at University of Pittsbrugh, Robert Riehn at NCSU, and Jane Tao at Rice University).
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in biophysics, biochemistry, molecular biology, or a related field, with background in one of the following areas: fluorescence imaging, atomic force microscopy imaging or protein-DNA interactions.
Start date: Janurary 2018
We seek highly-motivated Ph.D candidates who are interested in single molecule imaging and multi-disciplinary approaches to study biological systems.
We seek highly-motivated undergraduate students who are interested in multi-disciplinary approaches to study biological systems.
We have long term interest in seeking outstanding work-study students to assist postdocs and graduate students in our lab. The primary responsibilities are: lab maintenance, DNA substrate preparation, protein purification, flow-cell preparation. We are looking for a person who can excel in an interdisciplinary environment and is willing to acquire new skills outside their main areas of training.
Our lab welcome Global Engagement in Academic Research (GEAR) Program students from China and other countries. We hosted two undergraduate students from Zhejiang University in summer 2013.
