UNC Postdoctoral Position in Cell Cycle Dynamics in Single Cells in Cook and Purvis LabsPosted: 05 17, 2017
UNC Postdoc Opening: Cell Cycle Dynamics in Single Cells
The laboratory of Professor Jean Cook (UNC-CH Biochemistry & Biophysics) studies fundamental aspects of proliferation control with a long-term goal of understanding the organization of the human cell cycle, regulation of cell cycle transitions, and mechanisms that ensure global genome stability. A postdoctoral position is available to join a collaborative project with the Purvis lab (UNC-CH Genetics) using quantitative live cell imaging to map and model cell cycle transitions. The project involves fluorescent reporter design and validation, genome engineering, microscopy, and (in collaboration) computational modeling. The team is diverse and collegial, and the principal investigator is committed to effective mentoring.

The lab routinely employs single cell approaches using live and fixed cell imaging, biochemical assays of protein-protein and protein-chromatin interactions, and molecular analyses of protein post-translational modification and stability.
Qualifications are a PhD in cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, or a related field. Successful applicants will have a track record of research productivity and good teamwork skills.
