Summary of Duties and Responsibilities: A postdoctoral researcher position is available in Prof. Xuefeng Wang’s lab at Iowa State University. Wang Lab studies cell mechanobiology using state-of-art molecular force sensors. The individual in this position will apply molecular force sensors and single-molecule imaging to study cell mechanobiology. Our current force sensor is capable of imaging single molecular tensions generated by cells, enabling cellular force study with unprecedented ultra-sensitivity and super-resolution. Our lab welcomes applicants from diverse disciplines. Applicants with background in cell biology, biophysics, physics, biochemistry, bioengineering or related fields are all welcomed to apply. Our studies have been constantly published in highly influential journals such as ACS Nano, JACS, Current Biology, JCB, Biosensors and Bioelectronics, etc. More than half of postdoctoral alumni from our lab have found faculty positions in US or the country of origin.
The recruited postdoc researcher will be commissioned with both method development and biomedical applications in this exciting frontier of science. To obtain more information about the research and publications in our lab, please visit the website (https://faculty.sites.iastate.edu/xuefeng/). This position is supported by NIH fund for three years. It is renewable after three years based on mutual satisfaction. Interested individuals should submit a brief cover letter, CV, and the names of 2-3 referees to Dr. Xuefeng Wang by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Required Minimum Qualifications: Ph.D. in cell biology, biophysics, physics, biochemistry, bioengineering or related fields.
Preferred Qualifications: Experience in cell culture, fluorescence microscopy, and image analysis by Matlab is desired but not required.
Proposed Start Date: October 1, 2022
