Postdoc Opening in Single-Molecule Fluorescence Microscopy and Super-Resolution Imaging in Living Microbial Cells
The Biteen Lab at the University of Michigan is recruiting a postdoc for a federally funded project to develop methods to measure and understand how subcellular organization and dynamics affect function in living cells. We use live-cell, single-molecule fluorescence imaging to obtain mechanistic understanding of key processes in microbes.
Our research transcends conventional disciplinary boundaries and therefore thrives when the members have a range of skills, knowledge, and talents. An ideal candidate has prior experience in single-molecule biophysics, microscopy and optics, quantitative image analysis, and/or microbiology; is highly motivated to learn complementary skills as needed; and is excited to think quantitatively and on the molecular scale about single-cell biology. A track record of teamwork, collaboration, and good written and oral communication skills will also be valued. This multidisciplinary and collaborative research will provide training in super-resolution microscopy, microbiology, and image analysis. I am also very committed to ensuring that my trainees develop as scientists, publish, present their work, and find positions commensurate with their goals.
The University of Michigan is a terrific institution that highly values both the biosciences and interdisciplinary research. A cultural hub of the region, Ann Arbor is a diverse and cosmopolitan town; it is routinely rated as a top place to live. Our lab welcomes all races, all religions, all countries of origin, all sexual orientations, and all genders. Everyone who is curious, excited to learn, and motivated to be challenged is welcome here, regardless of previous experience or personal identity.
More information about our research program and our core values are available on our website, http://sites.lsa.umich.edu/biteen-lab/. If you would like to be considered for this postdoc, please email me your resume and a brief statement of what attracts you to this area of research. Please provide the names of at least three references. I am also very happy to talk more about research directions and my general expectations by phone or email!
