|Postdoctoral Research Associate I|
|Department||Cellular & Molecular Medicine|
|Department Website Link||https://cmm.arizona.edu/|
|Location||UAHS - Tucson|
|Address||University of Arizona Health Sciences, Tucson, AZ USA|
|Position Highlights||The Rogers Lab located in the University of Arizona Cancer Center in the UArizona Department of Cellular and Molecular Medicine is seeking highly motivated candidates for the full-time position of Postdoctoral Research Associate I.
Dr. Rogers’ NIH-funded research incorporates biochemical, genetic and cell biology approaches on the cellular/protein level to identify molecular mechanisms that underlie assembly of an organelle known as the centrosome. Current studies focus not only on how centrosomes duplicate but how changes in centrosome copy number influence the fidelity of chromosome transmission as well as cancer initiation and progression. The laboratory utilizes a variety of approaches, including in vitro reconstitution, CRISPR/Cas9-genome editing, and super-resolution microscopy, to dissect the specific molecular mechanistic steps in the centrosome assembly pathway.
The successful Postdoctoral candidate will possess a cellular/molecular/biochemical skill set appropriate to accomplish the lab’s goals. In addition, they will possess the drive required to research complex cancer disease and will be able to work independently as well as collaboratively.
Outstanding UA benefits include health, dental, vision, and life insurance; paid vacation, sick leave, and holidays; UA/ASU/NAU tuition reduction for the employee and qualified family members; access to UA recreation and cultural activities; and more!
