The project officer will work on a project that investigates kindlins in cancer progression. Kindlins belong to a small family of FERM-containing cytoplasmic proteins that are crucial in cell migration, and recent studies demonstrated additional roles of these proteins in other cellular processes. We will employ a range of techniques, including molecular, cell based, biophysical and animal studies to discover novel roles of kindlins in physiological and pathological processes. The candidate should be familiar with basic molecular cell biology techniques, including PCR, immunoblotting, sub-cloning, mammalian cell culture and transfection. The project officer will also assist in the day-to-day running of the lab. Details of our team’s research can be found at:
