Job Title: Postdoctoral Fellow – Cell Cycle Regulation

Job Number: 70595

Location: Worcester, US

Job Description


A postdoctoral position is available in the Benanti Lab at the UMass Chan Medical School to study the molecular mechanisms that regulate cell growth and division. The Benanti Lab utilizes molecular, genetic, and systems biology approaches to study cell cycle regulation in both yeast and human cells. Research topics are flexible, but should be within the lab’s interests. Current projects include but are not limited to: decoding the rules of multisite phosphorylation, understanding how the cell cycle-regulatory network is rewired in response to environmental stress, and identifying targets of ubiquitin ligases and deubiquitinating enzymes whose functions impact the cell cycle.


The Benanti Lab is located in Department of Molecular, Cell and Cancer Biology where postdocs benefit from a modern open lab space with highly interactive colleagues, extensive bioinformatics support, and access to cutting-edge technologies.  Our lab is also affiliated with the Department in Systems Biology and has numerous collaborations with other labs in academia and industry.



Candidates should be highly motivated and technically accomplished, as documented by a strong publication record, and hold a recent Ph.D. in cell biology, molecular biology, genetics or related area of study. Ideal candidates will have demonstrated experience in genetics and advanced molecular biology approaches.
