The Polymenis Lab is hiring one postdoctoral scholar to join projects on how protein synthesis modulates the division of cells. This position is funded by an NIH R01 grant. We have identified a group of mRNAs that are translated dynamically in the cell cycle, impacting cellular metabolism, cell division kinetics, nuclear division, and longevity (see EMBO J - PMID: 28057705; eLife - PMID: 32432546; Genetics - PMID: PMID: 34849864). Our goal is to understand how these mRNAs are regulated in the cell cycle and how they control cell division and longevity.
