The Kipreos lab has a postdoctoral position available. Our laboratory
studies the function of SCF ubiquitin-ligase complexes in regulating cell
cycle progression. Both genetic and proteomic approaches will be employed
to identify SCF components and substrates. We have discovered that SCF-like
ubiquitin ligase complexes are required for cell cycle exit (Kipreos et
al., Cell 85: 829), cell cycle entry, chromatin condensation, and the
regulation of endoreplication. This is a relatively unexplored area of cell
cycle research, where insights gained in C. elegans are applicable to all

We are seeking motivated candidates who have molecular biology experience
and (preferably) experience with C. elegans or another genetic system.

Our laboratory currently has four graduate students and is located in the
Department of Cellular Biology, at the University of Georgia in Athens GA,
which is a dynamic college-town.
