Postdoc position, Meyer lab, Duke University

A postdoctoral position is available to work in the Meyer laboratory at Duke University. The project will involve the study of the effects of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and nitrosamines on C. elegans, with particular attention to mitochondrial and nuclear DNA damage, DNA repair, apoptosis, and mitochondrial dysfunction.

The Meyer laboratory is interested in understanding environmental and genetic influences on organism health, with a focus on DNA integrity (how DNA damage is caused, and repaired), oxidative stress, and processes of adaptation to pollution.
