A Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in cell biology and systems biology research in the laboratory of Dr. Edward Lau in the Department of Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine ( Our research focuses on multi-omics and bioinformatics approaches to understand protein spatiotemporal dynamics, homeostasis, and quality control processes using human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and other applicable laboratory models.

 We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to join our team who is passionate about quantitative life science research in proteomics, genomics, bioinformatics, and related fields. The candidate will work with our team to develop new methods to study protein spatiotemporal dynamics in non-steady state systems using a combination of stable isotope labeling, mass spectrometry, single-cell sequencing, kinetic modeling, biochemistry, and cell biology techniques.

The ideal applicant will have a track record in performing and dissemination original research in an academic setting, excellent organizational skills, and the ability to work both independently and in a team setting.


- Design and execute research projects to develop new methods to assess protein turnover, localization, and secretion in human induced pluripotent stem cell systems and/or mammalian models.

- Design and execute large-scale sequencing and proteomics experiments to profile cellular models of oxidative stress or senescence and to generate testable hypotheses.

- Record findings, analyze and interpret data, communicate experimental results and findings in both oral and written formats.

- Work independently or as part of a team on cell biology and omics experiments, which may include implementation and maintenance of cell culture models, animal models, tissue and molecule extraction, and other techniques.

Conditions of Employment:

- Must be able to sustain prolonged periods of sitting and/or standing in the laboratory environment.

- Must be able to handle, carry, and lift objects encountered in the research settings, up to 10 kg in weight.
