Post-doctoral training opportunities to study vertebrate chromosome biology and cell cycle control are available. We use cultured cells, extracts from frog eggs, and advanced microscopy techniques to study chromosome assembly and dynamics, how these processes are controlled by cell cycle progression and how these fundamental processes might be corrupted to contribute to disease. Experience directly related to this field is not necessary, but applicants should demonstrate interest in the topic and willingness to learn, be proficient in basic molecular biology techniques, and willing to work independently to develop their project, analyze experiments, and prepare manuscripts.
Informal inquiries are welcome (email@example.com). Formal applicants should send a letter of interest, CV and list of references to:
