A postdoctoral position is available beginning Fall 2019 in the lab of Jayakrishnan (JK) Nandakumar at the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Our lab studies the structure and function of telomeres and telomerase, which are protein-nucleic acid complexes that help maintain the ends of chromosomes. The current project involves the use of biochemical assays, genome-wide knockout screens, and other cell biological methods to understand how human telomerase functions in cultured human cells. The long-term goal of the project is to garner knowledge that would facilitate the design of the next generation of anti-telomerase based drugs for the cure/management of cancer.

The mission of the University of Michigan is to serve the people of Michigan and the world through preeminence in creating, communicating, preserving and applying knowledge, art, and academic values, and in developing leaders and citizens who will challenge the present and enrich the future.

The candidates should hold a Ph. D. degree, and a have strong background in molecular biology and cell biology. Experience in mammalian cell culture and retrovirus-based expression approaches are required. Candidates with a strong background in molecular biology techniques that involve the isolation of DNA and RNA from mammalian cells, and their preparation for deep-sequencing analysis are especially encouraged to apply. Experience in the analysis of deep sequencing data is preferable.

The University of Michigan conducts background checks on all job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent offer and may use a third party administrator to conduct background checks. Background checksare performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
