We are currently inviting applications for a Postdoctoral Associate Position to investigate mechanisms of genomic instability and cancer susceptibility.
Our lab is part of the Masonic Comprehensive Cancer Center and focuses on elucidating functions of Fanconi Anemia (FA) and Breast Cancer Associated Proteins in the context of cellular caretaker networks. We utilize biochemical assays in Xenopus laevis cell-free egg extracts and human cell systems to identify novel pathway players and functionally and structurally characterize Fanconi Anemia/BRCA proteins.
We seek enthusiastic candidates that have a solid background in Molecular Biology/ Biochemistry and enjoy being part of a highly motivated research team. A specific interest and expertise in DNA repair and replication would be ideal. Our research team works in an open lab structure that nurtures interactions with neighboring laboratories studying fundamental questions in cancer research and the DNA damage response.
The start date is negotiable but ideal start will be Spring 2010.
Interested? Please send a short statement of your research interests, complete curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of at least two references by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Postdoc Position Sobeck Lab" as subject line.
