The Institute of Molecular Biology seeks to create a pool of Ph.D. applicants for potential funding-contingent postdoctoral fellow and research associate positions. Appointments are of limited duration with an initial appointment of up to one year and may be renewable for up to five years depending on need, funding and performance. These positions become available as needs arise within different research groups in the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) at the University of Oregon. Postdoctoral fellows will be conducting research under the direction of a principal investigator for the purpose of acquiring research training in biology, chemistry or related field. Research associates conduct research with only general guidance. Postdoctoral research associates require a Ph.D. in chemistry, biology or related field by the start of the position. Directly relevant Ph.D. research experience is required for Research Associate status. The purpose of this notice is to inform prospective postdoctoral fellows and research associates how to apply for such a position. Please see the IMB website: http://www.molbio.uoregon.edu/ for information regarding the type of research being done in individual research laboratories and within IMB generally. Prospective applicants should directly contact the faculty member with whom they would like to train or work to express interest and follow application procedures as noted below. It is expected that research interests of postdoctoral fellows and research associates will complement and build on research being done by the faculty member. It is generally assumed that postdoctoral fellows will apply to federal and private funding agencies to fund their salary during the postdoctoral training period. Candidates who promote and enhance diversity are strongly desired. Salary is dependent upon experience and available funding.
To submit an application to the postdoctoral fellow and/or research associate pool, the following procedure is required. In pdf format, please submit the following: a letter of application which includes the name of the IMB faculty member contacted and with whom the applicant wishes to work or train, a current CV, and contact information for three professional references. These materials can be emailed to Kathy Campbell, firstname.lastname@example.org and must include the subject heading: Postdoc Pool # 130415.
Applications will be accepted on a continuous basis and remain active through December 31, 2013. Screening of applications will take place as positions become available.
Hires from this pool may be required to successfully complete a criminal background check.
