- Postdoctoral Fellow in Fluorescence Microscopy


One postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Jin Zhang at University of California, San Diego. Candidates for this position are expected to have an earned doctorate in Biophysics, Physics, Biomedical Engineering or a related field, with expertise in fluorescence microscopy strongly preferred.


This research project, funded by an NCI Outstanding Investigator Award, aims at developing new methodologies for studying native behaviors and properties of oncogenic molecules in living cells and requires integration of molecular engineering strategies, chemical and cell biological approaches, and state-of-the-art biophysical measurement and manipulation. This particular position has an emphasis on biophysical measurement and manipulation combining single-molecule imaging and optogenetics.


Salary and benefits will be commensurate with educational and professional experience.


Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Jin Zhang at the following address. When applying please include curriculum vitae, a brief description of research interests, and names and contact information of three references.
