Rockefeller University Research Assistant | Laboratory of Chemistry and Cell Biology in New York, New York
We study molecular mechanisms required for the stable propagation of our genomes with the goal of developing new therapies to treat cancer. Errors in cell division have been linked to diseases and developmental defects in humans. We combine the discovery and use of chemical probes, synthetic chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, and quantitative cell biology to answer long-standing questions relating to cell division. Studying cell division also provides us an opportunity to develop new approaches for the analysis of other complex cellular mechanisms.
Supervised by a senior scientist, the Research Assistant will work on a team project focusing on protein biochemistry, which could include cell culture, protein purification or various biochemical assays.
