A postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Dr. Andrew Holland (Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine). The Holland laboratory is studying the molecular mechanisms that control accurate chromosome distribution and the role that mitotic errors play in human health and disease. Our work utilizes a combination of chemical biology, biochemistry, cell biology and genetically engineered mice to study pathways involved in mitosis and their effect on cell and organism physiology. A major focus of the group is to develop animal-based models to study the role of cell division defects in genome instability and tumorigenesis.
For more details of our recent publications and research interests please visit our website at www.hollandlab.com.
The successful applicant must have, or be in the process of completing, a PhD. The ideal candidate will have experience in mouse models, cell biology or biochemistry. We also welcome those with backgrounds in engineering, chemistry, and physics who are interested in applying their expertise to biological systems. All candidates must be highly motivated and have a strong record of independent research
Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and should include a letter detailing the candidate’s motivation for this position, a full curriculum vitae including a list of publications and the names and addresses of three referees.
