The Starr and Luxton Labs are interested in understanding cellular mechanotransduction, or the ability of cells to sense and convert physical forces into biochemical responses. We work at the interface of biomechanical engineering, physical biology, and developmental genetics to elucidate the mechanisms underlying how nuclear envelope-spanning LINC complexes mediate cellular mechanotransduction. To do this, we use a powerful combination of advanced microscopy, C. elegans genetics, machine learning, novel high-throughput CRISPR-based genome-wide screens performed in cultured mammalian cells, small molecule genetic screens and synthetic biology. You can find more information about our team and research here: https://starr.faculty.ucdavis.edu.
We seek motivated candidates with < 5 years of postdoctoral experience. Recent graduates are encouraged to apply. Experience in C. elegans genetics, CRISPR-based genome engineering, in vitro biochemical reconstitution, and/or quantitative imaging is preferred, but any good application will be considered.
