Postdoctoral Position in Cell Biophysics Experiment
Carnegie Mellon University
Location: Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA
Internal Number: 102227
The Si lab at Carnegie Mellon University is looking for postdoctoral candidates. Our lab's drive is to discover "biological laws" that can help us understand living systems in a quantitatively precise way. Towards this goal, we develop/adapt tools, do rigorous measurements, and define new concepts. We are currently searching for simple yet fundamental rules connecting the complicated form of bacterial cells and their fitness in different environments. Please check out the lab website for more descriptions of our research: https://sifangwei.github.io/
The project(s) related to this position will be modifying and quantifying the biophysical and physiological properties of bacterial cells using genetics, microscopy, microfluidics, and other multidisciplinary tools to discover quantitative relationships between cellular organization and fitness.
We are mainly looking for candidates that aim for an academic career. We will walk you through the process of transitioning from a postdoc to an independent researcher. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in Physics (or related fields) by the time of appointment.
We are particularly interested in candidates that have done cell experiments and have PhD training in broadly defined bio-related areas (e.g., biophysics, microbiology, bioengineering etc.). Additional experience in molecular biology will be much welcome.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae and three letters of recommendation. Please email email@example.com with any questions regarding application.
