UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE, KNOXVILLE Post-Doctoral Research Associate in Cellular Biophysics
The Biophysics Research Program at the University of Tennessee is seeking candidates for a post-doctoral position in our Laboratory of Cellular Biophysics (the Mannik Lab). The work focuses on a how bacterial nucleoid and cell division apparatus are organized.
This interdisciplinary NIH funded research combines high and super resolution microscopy, quantitative image analysis, molecular biology methods and modelling of cellular processes. An important aspect of our work is development of nano/microfabricated fluidic devices for live cell studies that allow implementation of different physical and chemical stimuli to the cells. Fabrication of these devices will be carried out in nearby Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the successful applicant will participate in this work. Previous experience in high resolution microscopy, quantitative image analysis and microfluidics is desired.
Our primary mission is to move forward the frontiers of human knowledge and enrich and elevate the citizens of the state of Tennessee, the nation, and the world. As the preeminent research-based, land-grant university in the state, UT embodies the spirit of excellence in teaching, research, scholarship, creative activity, outreach, and engagement attained by the nation’s finest public research institutions.
