The Reck-Peterson lab (http://reck-peterson.ucsd.edu/) at the University of California San Diego and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to join our Aligning Science Across Parkinson’s (https://parkinsonsroadmap.org/)-funded project to study the role of LRRK2 in Parkinson’s Disease. We use a wide-range of state-of-the-art methods including single-molecule biophysics, in vitro reconstitution, and advanced live-cell imaging. We also collaborate with the Leschziner lab to solve protein structures by cryo-electron microscopy. See our recent paper in Nature (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-020-2673-2) describing the structure of LRRK2 and how LRRK2 acts as a roadblock for microtubule-based motors.
The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in the biological, biophysical, or biochemical sciences. Candidates must have experience in CRISPR-based gene editing and live-cell imaging. Experience in biochemistry and proteomics is also preferred.
Interested candidates should submit a cover letter and CV to rplabjobs (at) gmail.com. In addition, please have three referees send letters of recommendation directly to rplabjobs (at) gmail.com. Applications will be reviewed starting immediately until the position is filled.
