PostDoc: Protein Dynamics in Spermatid Morphogenesis
The Reproductive Sciences lab at Texas A&M University is seeking highly qualified postdoctoral fellows with experience in molecular biology and / or protein biochemistry to work in a young & enthusiastic research environment. Our group is interested in examining spermatid morphogenesis. Specifically we are examining the function of actin related proteins during transformative restructuring events of the spermatid cytoskeleton and chromatin. We will examine the role these proteins play in morphogenesis including cytoskeletal dynamics using animal models, tissue explants, and cell free protein interaction and dynamics assays.
PhD in Molecular Biology, Protein Biochemistry, or Reproductive Physiology. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated experience and publications in protein expression and purification, tissue culture, and / or advanced microscopic imaging. Expertise in actin dynamics assays, male germ cell development, or 4D tissue imaging will be particularly welcome. We are looking for highly motivated scientists who wish to join an interactive team at the cutting edge of research in cellular morphogenesis.
Texas A&M University is located in College Station, 1.5 hours from Houston or Austin, and 2.5 hours from Dallas or San Antonio. College Station provides a variety of housing options, with low crime rates and very low cost of living. The community is very close knit as is the Reproductive Sciences Lab. To apply, please send a curriculum vitae, a short statement of research interests and experience, and three names of references with contact information (e-mails and phone numbers) to Dr. Tracy Clement firstname.lastname@example.org
International and minority candidates are encouraged to apply. Texas A&M University is a diversity minded Affirmative Action/Equal opportunity employer.
