ペンシルバニア大のErfei Bi博士 ポスドク募集

ペンシルバニア大のErfei Bi博士の研究室にて、以下の内容でポスドクを募集しています。興味のある方はBi博士まで直接お問い合わせ下さい。

The Bi lab is seeking two postdocs to study the mechanisms of cytokinesis using both budding yeast and mammalian cell models. One postdoc will work on yeast projects while the other will work on mammalian projects. Our overall goal is to determine the architecture, regulation, and function of the actomyosin ring and its coordination with targeted membrane deposition and localized ECM remodeling (or septum formation in yeast) during cytokinesis. Mechanistic questions will be addressed using an integrative approach that combines genetics, quantitative live‑cell imaging, cutting‑edge EM, and biochemistry. Highly motivated individuals with a Ph.D. in biological sciences are welcome to apply. Preference will be given to those with experience in yeast or mammalian cell‑culture system, quantitative live‑cell imaging, and biochemistry. Stipends will be paid according to the NIH guideline (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-15-048.html). The positions are renewable up to 4 years, depending on performance.

To apply, please send your CV, a short summary of your current research, and arrange two letters of recommendation sent to Dr. Erfei Bi (ebi@mail.med.upenn.edu; Tel: 215-573-6676), Professor of Cell and Developmental Biology, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA 19104-6058.
