POSTDOCTORAL SCHOLARRequisition # 3486Position BasicsAdvertising Ends on:Monday, March 22nd, 2021Advertising Started on:Monday, March 8th, 2021College:Carver College of MedicineDepartment:BiochemistrySalarySalary:CommensuratePosition DetailsFull/Part Time Status:Full TimePercent Time:100%Position Description:The laboratory of Pamela Geyer invites mature, highly motivated candidates to apply for a position as postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Iowa. These fellows will join a research team interested in understanding the impact of nuclear architecture in stem cell survival and aging. Prominent changes in nuclear morphology occur during physiological aging and in disease. Our recent data demonstrate that the asymmetrically dividing germline stem cells (GSCs) in the Drosophila ovary employ a non-canonical mode of mitosis that sensitizes these stem cells to defects in proteins comprising the nuclear lamina, a protein network that build contacts with the genome to regulate transcription, replication and DNA repair. Current studies are focused on exploring the mechanisms involved in execution of this non-canonical mitosis and implications for stem cell health and longevity. In addition to driving science at the bench, the fellow will be introduced to the network of collaborative scientists with shared interests in defining biological processes critical for development and disease. The Geyer laboratory is located in a state-of-the-art facility that features a collaborative atmosphere to foster innovation, and is part of the Carver College of Medicine, a highly ranked biomedical research institute. The University of holds a long tradition of diversity, equity, and inclusion, a transition that began upon its founding with being the first public university to admit men and women on an equal basis (1855).
