The selectivity of targeting can be improved by intein-based toxin reconstitution from two dysfunctional fragments provided their cytoplasmic delivery via independent, selective pathways (Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2020 Sep 8;117(36): 22090-2210). We aim to achieve reliable cytoplasmic reconstitution of functional bacterial toxins from benign fragments in the cytoplasm of cancer cells. We are looking for outstanding, highly motivated and enthusiastic postdoctoral scientists. Extensive expertise in the following areas is desirable: protein expression and purification, cell biology. The initial position is open for 1 year with a possibility of extension. The primary responsibilities of the postdoctoral fellow will be conducting research, analyzing data, writing manuscripts. Efforts to attract funding will be welcomed and supported. To, please provide: 1) a letter explaining your qualifications and interest to this position, 2) a CV or Biosketch, and 3) names and resses of two or more professional references willing to provide letters of recommendation on your behalf.
