Postdoctoral fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Sergey Troyanovsky to study the
cell-cell contacts between epithelial cells. Enthusiastic candidates with recent PhD and expertise in molecular and cell biology are encouraged to apply. Our laboratory has elucidated the specific mechanisms driving the formation of cell-cell junctions (PNAS, 2018, doi: 10.1073/pnas, J Cell Biol, 2015, doi: 10.1083/jcb; J Cell Sci, 2015, doi: 10.1242/jcs). Our current goal is to understand how the cytoskeleton and polarity proteins guide junction assembly and build the highly organized tissue architecture. These studies have direct implication in understanding of abnormal morphogenesis in different pathologies including cancer. The laboratory has integrated a
broad range of techniques such as genomics, proteomics, molecular biology, and live cell imaging.
