The Antony laboratory at Marquette University is looking for a motivated researcher to carry out projects that will provide a greater understanding of the mechanism of in vivo regulation of enzymes that function in DNA repair and recombination. The goal of our research is to dissect the cellular mechanisms that protect the integrity of the genome.
For this NIH-funded position, the postdoctoral fellow will be entrusted with utilizing tissue culture methods to understand how phosphorylation controls DNA repair and recombination. We are investigating the role novel sites of phosphorylation in DNA repair. We are also developing new methodologies to incorporate non-canonical amino acids in human cell lines and the postdoctoral fellow will be integral to carrying out associated experiments.
Duties and Responsibilities:
The ideal fit for the position is a postdoctoral researcher with extensive training in tissue culture, transfections, western blots, basic molecular biology, FACS, and exposure to other cellular biochemistry tools.
A background in signalling mechanisms, protein translation, DNA repair and recombination processes or cancer biology are highly desirable.
The PDF will be responsible for designing and performing experiments, interpreting results, writing manuscripts, and training of graduate and undergraduate students .
Required Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
Earned doctorate (or its foreign equivalent) or appropriate terminal degree.
Preferred Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities:
- Tissue Culture. - Basic cellular biochemistry. - Analytical tools including Western Blotting and FACS analysis.
Special Instructions to Applicants :
All applications for this position must be received through Marquette University’s electronic recruiting system. Please attach a cover letter and CV, as well as the names and contact information for three references. Please contact Dr. Edwin Antony (email@example.com) if you have additional questions.
