Two postdoctoral positions are available in Dr. Jian-Qiu Wu’s laboratory at Department of Molecular Genetics, The Ohio State University (OSU), Columbus, Ohio, USA. The positions are funded by National Institutes of Health. The Wu lab studies molecular mechanisms of cytokinesis and related cellular processes in the fission yeast S. pombe using complementary molecular, cellular, biochemical, genetic, microscopic (confocal, super-resolution, and electron microscopy), and computational approaches. More information about our research can be found at the lab website: https://www.asc.ohio-state.edu/wu.620.
Ideal candidates will conduct research to understand molecular mechanisms of cytokinesis in fission yeast, assist in training graduate and undergraduate researchers, and prepare manuscripts for publications.
Highly motivated and energetic candidates with recent Ph.D. degrees (or senior graduate students) in related fields and strong publication records (at least one or two first-author research articles) are encouraged to apply.
Inquiries may be directed to Dr. Jian-Qiu Wu at email@example.com. Please attach a cover letter, curriculum vitae/resume, description of research experience, and names and contacts of three references in your application.
