Laboratory of Cell Motility headed by Dr. Vladimir Varga is seeking a motivated postdoctoral researcher to study changes to the cell architecture during differentiation of Trypanosoma brucei.
Our research group focuses on the biology of the eukaryotic cytoskeleton. In this project we aim to study changes to the microtubule-based cytoskeleton, the flagellum, and the overall cell architecture during differentiation processes associated with life-cycle transitions of Trypanosoma brucei, a protozoan parasite causing sleeping sickness. To achieve this, advanced imaging techniques, such as expansion microscopy and electron microscopy will be employed. Furthermore, candidate proteins for orchestrating cytoskeletal changes will be studied by generating and characterizing mutant trypanosome strains.
