An NIH-funded postdoctoral research or more senior research position is available immediately in the Hughson lab at Princeton University. Our group's research focuses on the remarkable protein machinery that generates the interior architecture of eukaryotic cells by orchestrating the formation and fusion of cargo-carrying transport vesicles. Our recent discoveries lay the foundation for exciting new projects studying how membrane tethering proteins work together with membrane fusion proteins to ensure accurate and efficient cargo delivery. This work will combine structural techniques (cryoEM, crystallography) with mechanism-directed functional studies. If this sounds interesting, please apply to join our team with your CV, a cover letter describing your research interests, and contact information for three references at
