National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, MD and surrounding area

A post-doctoral fellow position is available in the Tissue Morphodynamics Unit headed by Dr. Kandice Tanner at the National Cancer Institute. The Tanner lab combines biophysical and cell biological approaches to understand the interplay between cell motility and tissue architecture. (see for instance Tanner et al., 2012 PNAS). We use a combination of imaging modalities, cell biology and animal models. It is expected that as a member of this lab, one will have an opportunity to be exposed to all these areas. We value a vibrant and collaborative environment where lab members share ideas, reagents and expertise and want to work on fundamental problems in the establishment of multicellular architecture.

Our lab is located in the NIH main campus in Bethesda. The research facilities at NIH are outstanding and the lab has state-of-the-art equipment such as multi-photon and confocal microscopes, FACS facilities and animal vivarium.

The position will be fully funded by the NIH. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline (biomedical engineering, (bio)physics, biology or mechanical engineering) with a strong publication record that reflects individual accomplishment, a demonstrated proficiency in optical physics, biology, image processing and algorithms development. Experience with finite element modeling is a plus.

Prior hands-on experience with confocal imaging and or TIRF microscopy, FRET/FLIM, Matlab and/or LabVIEW programming development is expected. It is desired that the candidate has at least one first author publication and obtained his/her doctoral degree within the last three years. Other requirements include ability to work independently, as well as part of a team, strong verbal and written communication skills in English, strong motivation and most importantly a high level of creativity.

The successful candidate will interact with a diverse group of scientists with backgrounds in biochemistry, cell biophysics and cell biology.

The position offers a generous salary and benefits package as well as the possibility of further career advancement if performance is excellent.

To apply, please send a CV, a one-page research experience summary and contact information of three references to Tannerkd@mail.nih.gov. Please write "Post-doc application" in the subject header.

This position is subject to a background investigation. The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.
