Dan Starr and Gant Luxton are hiring! Starr and Luxton run a joint lab funded by an Allen Distinguished Investigator Award.

Research aspects of this job will be using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing to engineer mammalian tissue culture lines to test how LINC complexes and the cytoskeleton interact to regulate the biomechanics of the cell. Cell culture transfection, immunostaining, genome editing, live microscopy, and biophysical assays will be the primary approaches.
