Post-Doctoral Fellow - 29977 Faculty Description University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus Department: Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics Job Title: Post-Doctoral Fellow/Trainee Position #00806091: – Requisition #:29977 Job Summary:
Postdoctoral Fellow in the Zhao Laboratory
The laboratory of Dr. Ning Zhao focuses on developing technologies to understand how proteins are regulated by tracking proteins in living cells with high spatiotemporal resolution. The major approach is single-molecule tracking using super-resolution microscopy. Traditional biochemistry and biophysics approaches will also be applied in our research, such as ELISA, western blots, protein purification, circular dichroism, ITC, DSC, et al.
The laboratory of Dr. Ning Zhao is seeking a motivated, independent, creative post-doctoral researcher to join our laboratory at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
Candidates will be expected to plan and execute independent experiments, conduct imaging analysis, assist in the writing and publishing of experimental results, assist in grant applications, and contribute positively towards the atmosphere and culture of the lab. Key Responsibilities:
The postdoc candidate will study protein translation and folding dynamics by applying single-molecule tracking approach.
The candidate will also assist in the preparation of manuscripts to publish their work, the preparation of grant applications, both internal and external, and the preparation of scientific data for presentation at various meetings and conferences. The candidate will also mentor junior scientists in the lab in their scientific development.
Why Join Us:
Our department conducts research across a wide biological scale for fundamental scientific understanding with applications to many disease contexts. The overarching goal is to reach a level of molecular insight that helps develop therapeutic approaches to disease.
As biochemists and molecular geneticists, we are in the midst of an unprecedented time of discovery - our conception of the molecular biology of cells is going from the equivalent of grainy black-and-white to high-resolution technicolor. From deciphering the choreography of transcription complexes, chromosomes, and RNA molecules within cells to developing novel approaches to 3D molecular structure determination to understanding how viruses hijack a cell's machinery and alter its metabolome, the researchers in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics (BMG) are at the forefronts of their fields both conceptually and technologically.
The University of Colorado offers a comprehensive benefits package that includes health insurance, life insurance, retirement plans, tuition benefits, ECO pass, paid time off – vacation, sick, and holidays and more.
