International Postdoctoral Fellowships in Mitochondrial DNA Replication

  • Phd
  • Salaried
  • 16 January 2022

Subject area description

Mitochondria contain their own genome that codes for several subunits of the respiratory chain. We have developed in vivo and in vitro techniques to study the basic mechanisms of human mitochondrial DNA replication and transcription, and how these processes are regulated.

Job assignments

With this project the candidate will investigate the biochemical mechanisms of proteins involved in mitochondrial genome replication and/or transcription. Our laboratory has developed several screening methods for new potential proteins, which will be examined both in vivo and in vitro using classic biochemistry, cell biology, and next generation sequencing techniques. The project mainly involves work with gel-based molecular techniques involving radioisotopes.
