Postdoctoral Researcher Position in the Laboratory of Centrosomes, Cilia and Microtubules

A postdoctoral researcher position is available in the in the Laboratory of Centrosomes, Cilia and Microtubules at Koç University. The central questions behind our work is understanding how centrosomes and cilia are assembled, maintained and dynamically altered during cell cycle, as well as elucidating what goes awry in diseases associated with abnormalities in centrosome/cilium complex. We take a multidisciplinary approach to address these questions, combining genomic, proteomic, biochemical and cell biological methods. For details please see https://mysite.ku.edu.tr/ekaralar/)

Applicants must hold a PhD degree in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, or related fields. To apply please send a cover letter summarizing your research interests, description of past research accomplishments, and your CV, along with contact information for at least 2 references to: ekaralar@ku.edu.tr

The Mitochondrial Biogenesis Laboratory, located at Koç University in Istanbul seeks a laboratory technician

Nearly one in 5000 people inherit mtDNA mutations that can cause disease. Others are afflicted with mtDNA-associated disease after long-term treatment with anti-viral or anti-cancer agents. Moreover, throughout our lifespan, we accumulate damage to our mtDNA, raising the possibility that mtDNA damage is a cause of aging. One long term aim of our laboratory is to find genetic and pharmacological methods by which we can increase the fitness of human cells with impaired mitochondria.

Successful candidates for this technician position should have a record of academic success during their undergraduate and, if applicable, master’s degree studies. Experience in molecular and microbiological techniques is favourable, and the candidate should be meticulous in their approach to laboratory tasks and
record keeping. Strong communication skills in both Turkish and English are essential.

Interested candidates should Email a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and the contact details of three references to Dr. Cory Dunn (cdunn@ku.edu.tr). The subject line should include the text “TECHAPP”.

More information about the laboratory can be found at: http://mitolab.ku.edu.tr

Postdoc, Phd and Technician Positions in the Cytoskeleton laboratory
Two postdoc, two PhD students and one technician positions are now available for different subprojects within a recently awarded ERC Starting Grant project. The overall aims of these projects are to study the biogenesis and function of the centrosome/cilium complex by focusing on their regulation of the underappreciated structures termed centriolar satellites. The available subprojects are highly interdisciplinary and include among others the development and use of state-of-the-art live-imaging assays (FRAP, photoactivation, SNAP) to study the dynamic behaviour of centrosome/cilium proteins, the use of proximity-labeling techniques and biochemical purifications to elucidate the changes in the proteome of the centrosome/cilium complex under different conditions and the use of genome-editing to generate cell lines for the proposed experiments. In addition, molecular cloning, cell biology and protein purification techniques will be routinely used. Candidates with a strong background in cell biology, biochemistry and/or proteomics are encouraged to apply, lab website (https://mysite.ku.edu.tr/ekaralar/). To apply, please send your cover letter, curriculum vitae and contact details of three referees to ekaralar@ku.edu.tr
