Position Summary

A Research Associate (Postdoctoral) Position in Cell Biology and Biochemistry

A research associate (postdoctoral) position is available in the lab of Dr. Jens Schmidt in the Institute of Quantitative Health Sciences and Engineering at Michigan State University.

Our research is focused on the quantitative analysis of telomerase mediated telomere maintenance, a process critical for the survival of most cancers. We use a combination of live cell single molecule imaging, genome editing, proteomic, and biochemical approaches to address how telomerase counteracts telomere attrition in human cancer cells. The lab will be located in the brand-new Bioengineering Building on the Michigan State University Campus in East Lansing.

We are looking for a Research Associate to join our growing laboratory, who is excited about telomere maintenance and is looking to help us build a deep mechanistic understanding of the underlying cell biological and biophysical processes. The ideal candidate should have a PhD in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, or Biophysics and have experience in microscopy, biochemical assays, and human tissue culture. Experience with data analysis and coding in Matlab would be beneficial. Most importantly, we are looking for an enthusiastic individual that wants to join a new laboratory and contribute to building a supportive environment and productive research program.

The lab is housed in a brand-new research building with state of the art facilities and equipment. The project is NIH funded and the salary will be based on the NIH salary scale plus a comprehensive benefits package. The start date is negotiable but ideally it would be in early 2018. If you are interested, please apply through http://careers.msu.edu send your CV, including your publication record, and the contact information for three references and also send to schmi706@msu.edu.
