A postdoctoral position is available immediately to study programmed DNA elimination in multicellular organisms in the Wang lab (https://dnaelimination.utk.edu/) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville . Programmed DNA elimination is a developmental process in which portions of the genome are reproducibly eliminated. This process occurs in the single-cell ciliates as well as in diverse eukaryotes. During DNA elimination in nematodes, the chromosomes break, some chromosome fragments are lost, and new chromosomes are formed. Areas under investigation in the lab include 1) how break regions are identified and how the breaks are generated, 2) how broken DNA ends are repaired during DNA elimination, and 3) the contribution
