Postdoc, student, and technician positions at U.Va Cell Biology to study specialized mechanisms of cell division in neural stem cells
University of Virginia The Dwyer Lab in the Department of Cell Biology at the University of Virginia is recruiting lab members from technicians to students to postdocs to work on two exciting new projects about the cell biology of brain development. We have been studying cytoskeletal regulation in neurons and neural stem cells for several years. Newly funded projects focus on 1) mutations in cell division genes and how they affect neural stem cells, and 2) how regulation of cytokinesis (abscission) affects cell fate and morphogenesis during brain development. We study multiple aspects of how neural stem cells build the cerebral cortex, from the single cell to the whole brain level, with a recent emphasis on cytokinetic abscission and neuronal morphogenesis. Approaches include cell and tissue culture, genetics and genomics, lineage tracing, multiple types of microscopy including live imaging and high-throughput, molecular biology, and whatever skills you may bring to the lab. The Dwyer Lab is located in newly renovated open lab space with a cohesive group of neighboring labs studying cell and developmental biology. The lab is committed to a diverse, inclusive environment and encourages applications from women and underrepresented groups.

Postdocs/technician: SPT in live cells, signaling dynamics, systems biology, biosensors/optogenetics
UNC-Chapel Hill The Hahn lab is seeking a molecular biology/protein biology technician and postdocs with a biophysics or synthetic chemistry background to study conformational dynamics of single molecules and GTPase networks in living cells using novel imaging and biosensor/optogenetic approaches.

Duke Human Vaccine Institute The Azoitei Lab at the Duke Human Vaccine Institute (DHVI), is currently recruiting for a Postdoctoral Associate to join our team. Research in the Azoitei lab is focused on two synergistic areas that are critical for the development of vaccines against highly infectious pathogens: 1) rational immunogen design for the induction of broadly neutralizing antibodies and 2) determining the biophysical properties of antigens that lead to B cell activation and development for antibody secretion. For immunogen design, we employ a rational, structure-based approach that utilizes state of the art computational protein design algorithms (Rosetta) and high-throughput library screening on the surface of yeast and mammalian cells. We are currently developing vaccines against HIV, influenza and emergent coronaviruses. To study B cell signaling in response to antigens, we utilize molecular tools (fluorescent biosensors and optogenetic probes) to visualize and control the activity of key signaling molecules in live cell microscopy experiments. While the molecules involved in B cell activation are well characterized, little is known about how the subcellular localization, duration and intensity of their activities are shaped by the biophysical properties of different antigens. All our work benefits from collaborations with structural biologists, immunologists and virologists. Candidates interested in any of the research areas of the lab are encouraged to apply.
2 Postdoc positions in Actin dynamics at Emory University
Emory University Shekhar lab at Emory University is inviting applications for two postdoc positions in actin biophysics/biochemistry. We are interested in understanding how multiple protein machineries and mechanical forces synergize in regulating dynamics of the actin cytoskeleton. To do this, we employ a combination of biochemical and biophysical in vitro techniques including microfluidics-assisted TIRF microscopy, single-filament and multispectral single-molecule imaging as well as bottom-up reconstitution using purified proteins.
We are specifically looking for candidates who have a background in biophysics/biochemistry/Cell Biology with prior experience in at least one of the following: protein purification and characterization, cytoskeleton dynamics, single molecule imaging and/or single molecule force spectroscopy. Postdoc funding is available for up to 5 years. More information about our research and recent publications can be found on our lab website: www.shekharlab.org. Interested candidates are welcome to contact me directly by email (email@example.com) and I will be happy to schedule a chat!
The Ohio State University Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Scientist position in the laboratories of Sarah Heissler and Krishna Chinthalapudi at the Ohio State University. The research project focuses on understanding the role of myosin motors and cytoskeletal protein complexes in health and disease. We combine biochemical and biophysical methods with structural techniques including X-ray crystallography and cryo-EM, and high resolution imaging to investigate how protein structure is related to its function.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree and strong practical experience in biochemistry and/or structural biology. Experiences with molecular biology techniques, protein expression and purification, and high-resolution imaging are desirable.
Please contact us directly by email (firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com) for more information.
Emory University A position for a postdoctoral fellow is available in the laboratory of Dr. Shoichiro Ono in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine. The Ono lab investigates the mechanisms of sarcomere assembly and maintenance in muscle and regulation of actin cytoskeletal dynamics. The lab utilizes molecular genetic and cell biological approaches using the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, as well as in vitro biochemical approaches to characterize actin filament dynamics.

UNC Chapel Hill The Cheney lab in the UNC Chapel Hill Dept of Cell Biology and Physiology is accepting postdoctoral inquiries from high motivated researchers interested in investigating the unconventional myosin Myo10 and its roles in filopodia and the filopodial tip complex. Growing evidence indicates that myosin-X is a key molecule in cancer biology and our work with mouse models demonstrates that it has important roles in mammalian develop in processes such as neural tube closure and eye development. Our work uses a variety of approaches, including cell culture, imaging, and mouse models.
