(07) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES AGAINST INFECTIOUS PATHOGENS

Two projects are offered:
  1. Investigation of human monoclonal antibodies against blood-stage P. falciparum. This stage of the P. falciparum life cycle offers a wealth of potential antigenic targets, few of which have been studied in depth. This project aims to isolate potent antibodies against leading antigen candidates and identify new targets on the surface of blood-stage parasites. If a suitable antibody is identified, it can be tested for the ability to prevent malaria in a clinical trial in a malaria-endemic region through intramural collaborations.
  2. Investigation of the human antibody response to M. tuberculosis. While the role of T cells in immunity against M. tuberculosis has been well-established, evidence is building that antibodies also play a protective role in TB. However, the most relevant targets and mechanisms of antibody-mediated immunity remain elusive. This project aims to identify new potent antibodies and antigenic targets on the M. tuberculosis surface.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION OF CENTROSOMAL SELF-ASSEMBLIES BY X-RAY CRYSTALLOGRAPHY, NMR, OR CRYO-EM

The architecture of a cell is established through varying degrees of hierarchical organizations from single molecules to macromolecular assemblies.  Investigating how these molecules interact with one another to form a higher-order structural entity with a new biological function is a key step to unlocking the mystery of life.  We are mainly interested in understanding the molecular bases of how the physicochemical properties of pericentriolar scaffold proteins drive the formation of micron-scale self-assemblies with distinct cellular functions.  Recently, we found that human polo-like kinase 4, a key regulator of centriole duplication, forms a high M.W. complex with centrosomal scaffold proteins, which cooperatively self-assemble into a higher-order architecture around a centriole in a concentration-dependent manner. Notably, a failure in these events can result in abnormal centrosome numbers, improper spindle formation, and chromosome missegregation that ultimately lead to the development of various human diseases, including cancer, ciliopathy, and microcephaly.

A postdoctoral position is available to study the role of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR)- and beta-arrestin-dependent signaling pathways in type 2 diabetes and obesity. The project involves the generation and analysis of new mouse models which express novel classes of designer GPCRs in a cell-type specific fashion (Wang L, et al.

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: TRANSGENIC MOUSE MODELING

We recently demonstrated that missense mutations in the gene SMCHD1 (Structural maintenance of chromosomes flexible hinge domain-containing protein 1) are the main genetic driver of congenital arhinia, an extremely rare craniofacial malformation (Shaw et al. Nature Genetics 2017).  SMCHD1 is a master epigenetic repressor that silences both X-linked and autosomal genes and plays a role in DNA damage repair. To understand the functional consequences of these mutations and to identify modifier loci, we are using a multi-pronged approach that includes genomic, proteomic, and molecular biology studies in patient-derived neural stem cells, transgenic mouse modeling, and structural biology.
