Actuatable-Sensing NanobioconjugatesPosted by: Postdoc positions by NIH
Posted date: 2019-Oct-11
The project, at the intersection of nanoscience and neuroscience, is aimed at the development of actuatable nanomaterial-based bioconjugates for the control of cellular membrane potential. The successful candidate will possess a multidisciplinary skill set including proficiency in the following: cell culture (neuronal cell culture experience is desired but not required), quantitative cellular imaging, fluorescence and/or confocal microscopy and biophysics.
For additional information on the Center for Bio/Molecular Science and Engineering at the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Washington DC, please visit: http://www.nrl.navy.mil/. NRL is the Department of Defense’s (DoDs) corporate laboratory for the Navy and Marine Corps. The Center for Bio/Molecular Science and Engineering works at the interface of materials, chemistry, biology, biophysics and materials science to solve critical problems of importance to the Navy and DoD.
Stipend: $83,398 annually with health benefits plus travel allotment. The position is administered through the National Research Council (https://www.nrl.navy.mil/careers/post-doc/nrc/) or the American Society for Engineering Education (https://www.nrl.navy.mil/careers/post-doc/asee).
A strong background and documented experience in molecular and cellular biology is essential. Our laboratory utilizes various nanomaterials (quantum dots, gold nanoparticles), molecular biology, protein and peptide engineering, FRET and cell biology to understand how to implement functional nanobioconjugates at the biotic/abiotic interface for the purposes of cellular labeling, imaging and sensing. This position presents an opportunity to work with a highly interdisciplinary group to create new types of nanomaterial-based sensors. Applicants must be US Citizens or US Permanent Residents at time of application.To Apply:
