Post-Doctoral Researcher – Biophysics of Molecular Motors
Postdoctoral positions are available in the Ostap Laboratory for highly motivated individuals to investigate the biophysics of cytoskeletal motors. Eligible candidates must have a recently earned (0-2 years) advanced degree (PhD, MD, or equivalent). Published experience in molecular biophysics is required, with single-molecule experience preferred.
The Ostap Laboratory (http://www.med.upenn.edu/ostaplab/) at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine is a core member of the Penn Muscle Institute (PMI), which is a research consortium that focuses on all aspects of contractile biology. The vibrant PMI community hosts an array of seminars, journal clubs, and symposia that engage students, post-docs, and faculty. For a listing of PMI programs, see our website (www.med.upenn.edu/pmi). Additionally, Penn’s Biomedical Postdoctoral Program (www.med.upenn.edu/postdoc/) is a national leader in career development for post-doctoral researchers.
