Postdoctoral Fellow - Quantitative Fluorescence & Human Retroviruses
Postdoctoral Fellows are sought to join an interdisciplinary research team (Profs. Louis Mansky and Joachim Mueller) that is focused on the application of quantitative fluorescence imaging technologies (e.g., TIRF, PALM, FCS) to ongoing studies of human retrovirus (HIV & HTLV) particle biogenesis.
Successful recruits will acquire extensive training in quantitative fluorescence imaging, and will join a strongly interactive, collaborative and collegial research environment. Minneapolis is a dynamic and progressive city with outstanding cultural attractions and a high standard of living. For more info, see: https://www.minneapolis.org/visitor-information/
The Institute for Molecular Virology (IMV) serves as the nexus for the virology research community at the University of Minnesota and provides an outstanding research environment for postdoctoral study. For more info, see: https://www.virology.umn.edu/
A robust career development program will be individually crafted for each postdoctoral fellow, which will emphasize not only research excellence, but also acquiring excellence in other skill sets to enhance successful job placement following the completion of their postdoctoral studies. An Individualized Development Plan (IDP) will be utilized to help chart progress, celebrate achievements, and address deficiencies. A key objective is to ensure that Postdoctoral Fellows are well prepared to compete in the job market, including positions as an independent investigator.
