Position Summary

The labs of Dr. Alan Jones in the department of Biology and Dr. Tim Elston in the department of Pharmacology are researching the ordinary differential equations, simple biological assays, potentially confocal microscopy. In particular, we are interested in the properties of biological switches with regard to speed, sensitivities, noise, memory, and feedbacks, to name a few. We are also interested in the plasticity of G-protein coupled signal transduction and explore this by looking at organisms divergent from humans where this type of signaling is well understood. For an example of our work, please read Fu, et al (2014) Cell 156:1084-1095.

A Postdoctoral position is currently open to discover regulatory mechanisms and properties of the heterotrimeric G protein pathway in humans and divergent organisms such as the genetic model plant, Arabidopsis in Dr. Jones’ Biology lab. The incumbent will perform mathematical modeling of signal transduction and the heterotrimeric g protein pathway.
