The Cell Cycle and Cancer Biology Lab at UAlgarve is hiring a researcher to work on the FCT funded project “Molecular Mechanisms of Chromosome Segregation”
The Cell Cycle and Cancer Biology Laboratory (CCBL) examines the components and regulatory mechanisms of the mitotic machinery and investigates the mechanisms by which deregulation of cell division can lead to cancer. The CCBL is focused on two crucial processes during mitosis, chromosome attachment to the spindle (kinetochore function) and the completion of cell division (cytokinesis). Using a broad range of classic genetic and cellular models, the CCBL group has identified a set of new genes that significantly affect chromosome segregation, spindle assembly, and cell abscission. We further showed that, when mutated, some of these genes cause the formation of tumors in Drosophila and that the human homologs of these genes can rescue the phenotypes. Our main goal is to find if they are equally involved in tumorigenesis in humans.
We call for highly motivated, self-driven candidates to apply until the 12th of April 2019.
To apply, please go to BEP.
We would very much appreciate that in your application you also join
1- Cover letter (presentation letter in which you should mention what are your scientific interests and why would you join our research group)
2- Contacts of two referees.
