The candidate will examine: a) if and how mitochondrial structural changes (due to fission and fusion events) impact mitochondrial functions, specifically energy production, in real time; b) the role of mitochondrial fission and fusion molecules in carcinogenesis. The project will majorly involve advanced high resolution live cell confocal microscopy. The postdoctoral position is offered for 2 to 5 years depending on the productivity of the candidate. The well-motivated candidate is required to have basic microscopy training and good communication skills. Preference will be given to candidates who have an interest in mitochondrial biology and have demonstrated their ability to work independently.
