Job Description

We are seeking applicants for a postdoc position in the lab of Dr. Silvia Jansen at Washington University in St. Louis, Department of Cell Biology and Physiology. The Jansen lab uses a combination of genetics, biomimetic systems, cell imaging, multi-color in vitro TIRF microscopy and single molecule techniques to study actin cytoskeleton dynamics. More specifically, we are focused on how two important, but heavily understudied families of actin-binding proteins, the Tropomyosins and the Coronins, play a role as regulatory hubs that generate different actin filament populations that are optimally suited to mediate intracellular trafficking, cell migration, cytokinesis or cell adhesion.
