A postdoctoral position is available for studying the mechanisms of mitochondrial fission and fusion in the lab of Alexander van der Bliek in the Department of Biological Chemistry, UCLA School of Medicine. Our lab was among the first to discover the role of dynamin-related proteins in mitochondrial fission and has more recently shown that mitochondrial fusion proteins are regulated by complex patterns of proteolysis. Mitochondrial fission and fusion proteins are intimately connected with apoptosis and with a host of neurodegenerative diseases, such as eye diseases and Parkinsons disease.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with a PhD in cellular and molecular biology. To apply, please send a current cv with the names of three references and a brief summary of past accomplishments to Dr. Alexander van der Bliek, email: avan[at]mednet.ucla.edu
