The Arur Lab at UT MD Anderson Cancer Center is recruiting postdoctoral fellows to analyze the developmental, and signaling mechanisms underlying the impact of maternal nutrition on germ cell progression in the model nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Current federally and state funded projects in the lab focus on the role of phosphorylated Dicer and Drosha (independently) in mediating oocyte to embryo transition and maternal RNA remodeling as well as the nutritional control and regulation of ERK signaling during meiosis, meiotic progression and oocyte growth.
Highly motivated candidates holding a Ph.D. or an M.D./Ph.D. in developmental, cellular or molecular biology are encouraged to apply. Please provide three letters of recommendation, CV and a research summary to Swathi Arur, Ph.D.
The Arur Lab is actively recruiting graduate students interested in developmental genetics or developmental signaling using the model nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Students are always welcome to rotate, and are encouraged to contact Swathi Arur, Ph.D. to discuss the current active projects in the laboratory.
