Job Opportunity: Postdoctoral fellow in cell biology: uncover the cell’s inner beauty, Kaverina Lab, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN

Posted by on Wednesday, June 7, 2023 in Job Opportunities .

Kaverina lab in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at Vanderbilt seeks scientifically curious, highly motivated individuals to study functions of microtubule cytoskeleton in cell physiology and disease. Our laboratory employs state-of-art live imaging approaches in order to solve challenging puzzles of cell dynamics. Our overarching goal is to understand how microtubules arrange cellular architecture for optimal performance of physiological functions. A variety of projects is available in two broad directions: (1) roles of microtubules and microtubule-associated proteins in organization of interphase cytoplasm and (2) roles of microtubules in pancreatic beta cell physiology, insulin secretion, and etiology of type 2 diabetes. Visit out lab webpage to learn more about us and about specific research projects (
Ideally, the successful candidate will be a recent Ph.D. graduate with expertise in the cytoskeleton, trafficking, and/or metabolism field. Experience in molecular cloning, advanced light and electron microscopy, computational modeling, and/or working with mice will be a plus.
Kaverina lab is a fun group of young scientists from diverse backgrounds within the vibrant environment of the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at Vanderbilt University. Postdoctoral positions in Kaverina lab are funded by the NIH NIGMS and NIDDK and offer a salary at least at the NIH standard level.
