We are actively recruiting post-doctoral researchers to study mechanisms of DNA replication. We currently have projects available in replication termination and replication restart. Successful applicants would be trained to use the various biochemical systems developed by Dr Dewar (Dewar et al, 2015, Nature; Vrtis et al, 2021, Mol Cell; Kavlashvili et al, 2023, Nat Struct Mol Biol). Additionally, there are ample opportunities to integrate cellular approaches in collaboration with our colleagues in the Cortez lab.
Qualifications: a Ph.D in biochemistry, molecular biology, biophysics, or any related discipline is required, along with one published or forthcoming first author publication.
Application guidelines: please email your CV, a cover letter describing your previous research and explaining your interest in the lab, and names of at least 2 referees, to James.Dewar@vanderbilt.edu
