A postdoctoral position is available in the research group of Dr. Jason Stewart at the University of South Carolina in the Department of Biological Sciences (http://stewartlab.weebly.com). Our research focuses on DNA replication and genome stability. We are particularly interested in elucidating how DNA replication is rescued following replication fork stalling in human cells, using a variety of biochemical, cell biology and molecular biology techniques.
Applicants should have a PhD in Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Cell Biology or related field and experience with biochemical, molecular biology and/or cell biology techniques. Previous experience with protein purification, protein-DNA binding studies, human cell culture and molecular cloning is strongly preferred. Strong writing and presentation skills are also required. Qualified candidates are expected to be self-motivated, independent and highly productive.
Those interested in applying for the position can send their CV with a list of publications, a description of past research experience and current interest and contact information for three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
