In our lab we investigate disordered proteins at the interface between Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, combining state of the art single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy and advanced theoretical models. In particular, we are interested in understanding the role of disordered regions in the formation of membraneless organelles by investigating model systems in vitro and in living cells.
We are currently looking for:
- PostDocs: interested candidates should have a background in biophysics, protein biochemistry, cell biology, biomedical engineering, or a closely related field. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are required. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, C.V., a brief description of their past research accomplishments, and the contact information for three references to email@example.com.
- Graduate students interested in working in our lab can contact Andrea Soranno directly, but should apply through one of the PhD programs (Biochemistry, Computational and Molecular Biophysics, etc…) at Washington University in Saint Louis.
- Undergraduate students interested in single-molecule spectroscopy and its application to intrinsically disordered proteins can contact Andrea Soranno directly.
