Staff Scientist/Postdoctoral position in biophysics of extracellular vesicles
A Postdoctoral Scholar/Research Professional position is available immediately in the laboratory of Deborah Nelson at The University of Chicago to study cell biology of human disease. The Nelson laboratory is NIH funded to examine the role of extracellular vesicles as nanodelivery agents in the resolution of human disease in three cellular contexts:
- The control of pathogen killing in innate immunity
- The resolution of disorders of bone formation including osteoporosis
- The neutralization of infection decoy targets for SARS-CoV-2 virus in the lung
We are seeking a Ph.D. graduate with training and experience in molecular biology, tissue culture and fluorescence microscopy. Applicants must be conversant in basic molecular biology techniques including protein, RNA, and DNA preparations, Western blotting, RT-PCR, PCR, and cloning. Opportunities for professional growth include various imaging techniques, nanoparticle isolation and characterization within the study of isolated cells and extracellular vesicles.
Applicants must have a PhD degree and a record of innovative scientific accomplishment in graduate and/or post-graduate studies, as evidenced by the applicant’s PhD thesis and/or by first authorships in peer-reviewed journals. High level English proficiency required: written, spoken, and reading. Salary scaled according to experience.
