A full-time postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Dan Fu’s laboratory in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Washington, Seattle. Our lab specializes in optical imaging of living biological systems using two-photon absorption, two-photon fluorescence, and stimulated Raman scattering microscopy. We are seeking a highly motivated scientist who is interested in developing novel single cell measurement techniques to study intratumor heterogeneity and drug response of single cells using 3D tumor spheroids and animal models. Successful candidate will work in a multi-disciplinary, collaborative, and supportive research environment to apply innovative precision chemical imaging tools to a wide range of biological/biomedical problems in cancer research and in neuroscience. For more information about the group, please visit: http://depts.washington.edu/fudanlab/
The position is renewable annually, with immediate start availability. Salary will be commensurate with research experience and based on the NIH guidelines for postdoctoral trainees.
An ideal candidate will have a PhD in Chemistry, Physics, Bioengineering or a related field. The candidate should also have extensive experience in the following areas:
– Optical microscopy, particularly confocal or two-photon microscopy
– Optical instrumentation
– 2D and 3D cell culture
– Image processing
Desirable but not required:
– Animal tumor models
– Experience with Raman spectroscopy
– Experience with Matlab/Python programming
To be successful in this position, the post-doctoral associate must be highly motivated with a track record of productive research, and willing to work in a collaborative research environment. The candidate is expected to design and run experiments, troubleshoot new protocols and imaging methods, mentor graduate students and manage research projects. The candidate will also be encouraged to participate in departmental seminars, journal clubs, national/international conferences, and trainings to further develop his/her career.
The successful candidate will be joining a young, dynamic group at the University of Washington, Seattle. The University of Washington is a vibrant center with top-notch research infrastructure and highly trained interdisciplinary teams in the biomedical sciences that spread across departments in the arts and sciences, engineering, and the medical school. It also has close interactions with nearby institutions including the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Institute for Systems Biology. The university is located in metropolitan Seattle, a city with abundant cultural attractions, a booming tech industry, and an unsurpassed variety of nearby outdoor activities.
