We are always on the lookout for new graduate students. If you are interested, please consider applying for the chemistry Ph.D. Program.
We currently have 2 openings for postdoctoral researchers. Each position is fully funded for the next 3-4 years. Preferred candidates will have expertise in one or more of the following areas: molecular biology and cloning, protein engineering, cell function assays, computational modelling of biological membranes, or advanced imaging methods like single molecule tracking and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy.
Areas of interest:
- Structure-function relationships in plexin-semaphorin signaling with emphasis on protein-protein and protein-lipid interactions
- Resolving the next steps in GPCR activation: How does oligomerization and lipid content affect downstream signaling?
- Functional effects of anionic lipid binding to membrane proximal domains of receptor tyrosine kinases.
- Hands on experience with custom built, time resolved fluorescence instrumentation
- Training in experiment design and data analysis of time resolved fluorescence imaging and spectroscopy
- Close interactions and additional mentoring with long-time collaborators at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine
- Interdisciplinary research spanning single molecule membrane biophysics, cellular function, and cancer cell biology
