The Stephens lab is seeking Postdoctoral Fellows funded by our R00 and UM1 4D Nucleome grants. We study the mechanical and shape properties of the cell nucleus and how these properties affect major nuclear functions such as genome organization, DNA damage, compartmentalization, and transcription. Abnormal nuclear shape has been used as diagnostic and prognostic marker for human disease such as cancer for nearly a century without understanding nuclear mechanical changes that underlie these abnormal deformations. Furthermore, we aim to study the consequences of both change in nuclear mechanics and morphology on nuclear and cell function.
