A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Brandt Eichman at Vanderbilt University to study the structures and molecular mechanisms of proteins involved in progression and maintenance of eukaryotic DNA replication forks and repair of DNA alkylation damage. The PI’s laboratory uses structural biology (X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, and electron microscopy), biochemistry, and biophysical methods to investigate DNA processing enzymes and their macromolecular complexes. Projects are collaborative and multidisciplinary, and incorporate cell biology, genetics, and chemical biology to tackle important questions related to genome maintenance.
