Our research

Dr. Duxin’s research aims at understanding the molecular mechanisms that ensure the accurate replication and maintenance of the genome, and how defects in these processes can become the cause of cancer and other diseases. To this end, the lab is using a cell-free extract system derived from the African frogs, Xenopus laevis. These extracts have the remarkable capacity to recapitulate many aspects of genome maintenance including DNA replication and many DNA repair processes. Using this system, the Duxin group recently described how DNA-protein crosslink repair is tightly coupled to DNA replication (Duxin et al. Cell 2014; Larsen et al. Molecular Cell 2019).

By joining the laboratory you will become part of a dynamic and multi-disciplinary research environment present at CPR that comprises state-of-the-art facilities to protein research including Mass Spectrometry, Protein Imaging, and Protein Production platforms.

Your job

The candidate will primarily focus on identifying and characterizing novel repair pathways that participate in the removal of DNA-protein crosslinks. To this end, the candidate will employ proteome and genome wide approaches combined with the power of the Xenopus system. This includes utilizing and developing many different methods of molecular biology, biochemistry and computational analysis. The candidate will have access to all the state-of-the art facilities present at CPR.

Profile

Essential experience and skills:

  • You are required to have a Ph.D. degree in science or equivalent.?
  • Strong knowledge in molecular biology or biochemistry is required.?
  • Publications in internationally recognized journals is required.?
  • Good communication skills, both oral and written.?
  • Demonstrate in the letter a particular enthusiasm in mechanisms of genome maintenance.
