Postdoctoral Investigator in Single Molecule Microscopy and Laser Trapping
We are seeking a Postdoctoral Investigator to work on kinetochore-microtubule interactions using reconstituted systems in vitro (https://www.med.upenn.edu/grishchuklab/). The applicant will have opportunities to work with state-of-the art microscopy instruments and receive training in a multidisciplinary and highly collaborative environment. The intellectual environment at the University of Pennsylvania is outstanding for single molecule and cell biological work on cytoskeletal motors and mitosis. Preference will be given to researchers with strong skills in quantitative fluorescence microscopy and experience with single molecule and laser trapping techniques. Competitive applicants should have a strong publication record. This full-time position annually renewed with an expected 3-year average duration. We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense.
Please combine into a single PDF your CV, a Research Statement describing your scientific accomplishments, research interests and 1-3 key first author publications, and the names of three references. Email the one document to firstname.lastname@example.org
