The Greene Laboratory at Columbia University in New York City is looking for highly motivated postdoctoral researchers interested in research projects related to the molecular mechanisms of genome integrity.
Our laboratory studies the molecular mechanisms that contribute to genome integrity with an emphasis on homologous DNA recombination and chromatin biology using both yeast and human model systems. For these studies, the laboratory has established unique DNA curtain technologies for visualizing protein–nucleic acid interactions at the single–molecule level in real–time using total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy. Using these technologies, we can see what proteins are bound to DNA, where they are bound, how they move, and how they interact with and influence partner proteins in real–time at the level of a single reaction.
