The Fuchs lab provides a highly interdisciplinary environment for the study of questions surrounding how protein sequence and structure – and in particular post-translational modifications of proteins – regulate protein function. We therefore have diverse opportunities for undergraduates, graduate students, and postdocs in areas from molecular biology and yeast genetics, to biophysics and synthetic chemistry. If you have any questions about the work going on in our lab or openings in my lab, please feel free to contact me.
My lab studies a broad spectrum of biological phenomena related to
protein structure and function. These include – the role of
post-translational modifications in regulating chromatin
architecture, post-translational regulation of scaffold proteins,
regulation of repetitive protein domains – among others. Our primary
model system is the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae but we
are interested in problems from diverse organisms.
Postdocs interested in furthering their research training in my laboratory should meet four criteria:
Positions for undergraduate students are limited and very competitive. If you are an undergraduate looking for research experience, I encourage you to contact me about potential positions at least one semester prior to starting research. When contacting me, please provide me with information about your academic record, your prior research experience (if any), your reasons for wanting to gain research experience, and the aspect(s) of my research you find most interesting. Underclassmen are generally preferred, providing that they are interested in a several semester commitment.
Visiting Scientists and Summer Students from Other Institutions
Innovation thrives on the diverse ideas and experiences of the researchers participating in a project. In the Fuchs lab we welcome diverse individuals – from international undergraduate students visiting for the summer to established faculty interested in sabbatical work. Undergraduate students from other institutions interested in working in the lab are encouraged to contact Dr. Fuchs in preceding fall semester and to look for potential sources of financial support. Tufts University does have an Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program that eligible students are encouraged to apply for. More information can be found here.
