A postdoctoral position is available at the Department of Genetics at the University of Alabama, Birmingham (UAB). Our group (www.mitochondria.org) has a longstanding interest in understanding the role of mitochondrial genetics in human diversity, mitochondria-to-nucleus retrograde crosstalk, numtogenesis (nuclear mitochondrial biogenesis), mitonuclear genomic instability in cancer and cancer health disparities and aging.
We have an excellent academic environment and research facilities at the Department of Genetics. UAB is a major research university and academic health center that offers a highly interactive scientific environment with state-of-the-art research and core facilities and multidisciplinary work environment. The Department of Genetics fosters collaborations with other basic science as well as clinical departments and the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The candidate is expected to be self-motivated, resourceful and should have a recently obtained a Ph. D degree. Those with interest and experience in mitochondrial biology, biogenesis, and genetics, epigenetics such as DNA methylation and mouse and cell culture models of cancer and/or human diseases are strongly encouraged to apply.
Although not required, the ideal candidate will have experience in mitochondrial techniques, OXPHOS enzymatic assays, cell culture, and standard molecular and epigenetic techniques including cloning, real-time PCR, transfection, Southern, Northern and Western analysis and immunoprecipitation. The candidate with experience in tumorigenesis assays such as soft agar, matrigel invasion, and mouse xenograft is also preferred. The successful candidate is expected to design and perform experiments and interpret data independently.
Interested applicants should email a cover letter with the description of research interests and experience, curriculum vitae, and contact information of three references (in pdf format) to firstname.lastname@example.org
