An NIH funded post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Swathi Arur at the Department of Genetics, UT M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. The Arur Lab studies the molecular mechanisms of ERK signaling during germ cell development in the model nematode C. elegans. Available projects integrate multiple approaches including genetics, cell biology, genomics and proteomic technologies to understand how ERK mediated phosphorylation affects the function of various target genes during oogenesis,
The Arur Lab is part of Department of Genetics at UT M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, which is part of the Texas Medical Center. The TMC is home to 48 excellent institutions and has a vibrant and highly interactive Worm/scientific community that provides a rich environment for scientific growth. The Department of Genetics at UT MDACC houses state of the art laboratories, with microscopy cores, MicroRNA cores and NextGen Sequencing cores and opportunities abound for interdisciplinary collaborations.
Applicants must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degree. Experience in molecular biology and genetic studies using model organisms is required, and C. elegans experience is preferred. MDACC offers a great post doctoral experience with both research support and professional development programs and includes an excellent benefits package.
To apply submit a cover letter clearly stating your past experience and future goals, curriculum vitae, and the names and contact information of three references to:
