Postdoctoral funded research positions are available in the Fowler Laboratory in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Delaware, Newark, DE, USA. Our lab is interested in actin cytoskeleton architecture and forces at membranes in cell and tissue morphogenesis, biomechanics and physiology. Current areas of study are: 1) actin dynamics and forces in nuclear expulsion and membrane skeleton assembly to form red blood cells; 2) actin dynamics and forces in red blood cell membrane nanoscale architecture, biconcave shape, and deformability; 3) actin cytoskeleton architecture and mechanotransduction in eye lens epithelial cells during ocular lens shape change. For more information please consult our website at https://www.bio.udel.edu/people/vfowler. The research will involve collaborations and interactions with other researchers locally, nationally and abroad. The candidate will be expected to plan and carry out research tasks independently and write-up/present findings on a regular basis. Some supervision of trainees may be expected. We are committed to mentoring and training the postdoctoral researcher and providing the support needed to reach their career goals. For competitive candidates, references from current and previous postdoctoral trainees attesting to the supportive and dynamic research environment are available upon request. You will have the opportunity to do research in an intellectually dynamic, collegial setting at the University of Delaware, by applying a combination of cell biology, molecular genetics, biochemistry, and high-resolution quantitative light, super-resolution, and electron microscopy to your research, in various systems including mammalian primary cell culture, mouse models and in vitro. We also have ongoing collaborations with computational biologists, biophysicists and mechanical engineers. The University of Delaware has a superb Bioimaging Center https://bioimaging.dbi.udel.edu/, and extensive core resources in flow cytometry, proteomics, and data science technologies https://www.bio.udel.edu/research/university-cores.
A Ph.D. (completed, or nearly completed) in a Biological/Life Sciences discipline such as cell and developmental biology, or biophysics and bioengineering required. Experience in basic techniques in molecular and cell biology, fluorescence microscopy, and analysis of protein-protein interactions required, and familiarity with live cell imaging, quantitative image analysis, primary cell culture and tissue/blood cell isolation from animals (mouse) preferred. Experience is also required in experimental design, data analysis and interpretation, and ability to bring research projects to completion and publication. Good written and oral communication skills, as well as excellent team-work attitude, are expected. Candidates are also expected to have published 1 or more first author articles from their thesis work. Interested candidates please send a CV with a list of publications (past and/or pending), a brief statement of your previous research expertise, your postdoctoral research interests, and the contact information of three referees to Velia M. Fowler.
