is thinking differently

Welcome to the Saurin lab website

We are based at the University of Dundee and we study the process of cell division because it is fundamental to all life on earth and it goes wrong in the vast majority of cancers. It is also a beautiful system to understand how signalling networks are regulated in time and space.

Find out more about what motivates our research here.

We are currently looking to appoint a postdoctoral researcher on our CRUK-funded programme.

The goal is to examine how kinases and phosphatases work together to control chromosome segregation and protect against cancer. We are primarily looking for a highly-motivated and ambitious postdoctoral researcher with a passion for science. Endless questions are more important the endless skills, but mitosis and/or microscopy experience would be advantageous. If you are interested then please contact me for further information.
