We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join the Chromosome Biology research group led by Dr. Madhusudhan Srinivasan and Professor Kim Nasmyth. In particular, we are looking for someone interested in developing novel in vitro techniques to probe the mechanistic details surrounding the processes of DNA entrapment and loop extrusion by cohesin.

Experience with quantitative image analysis and super resolution microscopy is essential, as is having a good publication record in peer-reviewed journals.
