Post Doctorate RA - Super Resolution Fluorescence and Cell Biology

Job ID:  308697
Directorate: Earth & Biological Sciences
Division: Environmental Molecular Sciences
Group: Biosystems Dynamics & Simulation

  Postdoctoral research associate position is available at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for investigating molecular mechanisms in intact cells or tissue sections using single molecule and super resolution fluorescence microscopy combined with cellular and  molecular biology techniques. The work will be performed at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) – a DOE national scientific user facility. The research will be conducted mainly in two areas: 1) develop and apply single molecule and super resolution fluorescence techniques to quantify the expression of multiple genes in intact cells or tissue sections to identify cell abnormalities or characterize responses, 2) identify molecular interactions at the interface between nanomaterial and the cell surface or intracellular environment in live or intact eukaryotic cells. A Ph.D. degree in biophysics, molecular and cellular biology or related disciplines is required. Qualified candidates will have prior experience in quantitative single molecule and super resolution fluorescence techniques, including quantitative single molecule fluorescence in situ hybridization (smFISH), as well as practice with data analysis using imaging and statistics software, such as MATLAB. Additional required skills include the ability to collaborate effectively on teams; excellent oral and written communication skills; creative/innovative thinking.  In addition, applicants should provide contact information for three references from whom recommendations will be requested.  The appointment will be for at least one year starting as soon as possible.
