Postdoctoral Research Scientists studying Autophagy
Two Postdoctoral Research Scientist positions are available to study autophagy and its roles cellular development, nutrient recycling, and maintenance of protein homeostasis. It is now becoming clear that autophagy is a major player in the selective turnover of individual proteins, protein complexes, protein aggregates, organelles and even invading pathogens, and is essential for cellular proteostasis. Using yeast, Arabidopsis and maize as tractable genetic and biochemical models, the Vierstra lab is attempting to define the mechanisms that drive selective autophagy and understand how this process influences an organism’s proteome during development and under nutrient-rich and starvation conditions, using a suite of omics approaches including mass spectrometric methods to glo
