The laboratory of Professor Ruobo Zhou in the Department of Chemistry and Department of Bioengineering, and in the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences, at The Pennsylvania State University, seeks to fill a postdoctoral research position in the fields of Biophysics/Biochemistry/Bioengineering.
The candidate will work in a highly interdisciplinary environment at the intersection of biology, chemistry, physics, and engineering, using cutting-edge imaging-based techniques, such as super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, single-molecule detection methods, as well as high throughput “omics” approaches such as transcriptome-scale imaging method to study the biological systems related to human diseases. Projects will involve multi-color super-resolution fluorescence imaging of protein organizations in neurons, cancer cells, and T-cells, and/or transcriptome-scale RNA imaging in neurons and T-cells. The PI’s full publication list can be found here: https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=-HscT38AAAAJ&hl=en, and more information about the PI and the lab can be found here: thezhoulab.org
Minimum Qualifications: The applicant must have recently received, or be scheduled to receive, a Ph.D. in an area broadly relevant to our research program by the time employment starts, such as a Ph.D. in Biophysics, Biochemistry, Bioengineering, Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Science, or related fields.
Advantageous Qualifications: Experience with one or more of the following techniques would be preferred: optical microscopy, cell culture, cloning, quantitative image analysis, and/or computer programming (Matlab, Python, or similar). Knowledge in cell biology, neurobiology, immunology, cancer biology, or RNA biology would be a plus.
How to apply:
Interested and qualified applicants must submit applications electronically to include a cover letter describing your background, prior training, and research interests, as well as a CV that includes a list of publications. The application should be sent to ruobo.zhou_at_psu.edu or through the application link. Following a screening of these initial application materials, appropriate candidates will be contacted by email for letters of reference. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one year from the date of hire with a possibility of re-funding. Review of applicants will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
