Postdoc position in single-molecule imaging and manipulation of membrane-
less organelles (MLOs)
Your mission :
Laboratory of Nanoscale Biology at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de
Lausanne (EPFL) has an opening for a postdoctoral fellow to investigate the
behavior of individual molecules and biomolecular phase transition in vitro
and in living cells. The successful candidate will work independently to
develop and drive forward his/her research project and also collaborate on
ongoing projects in the group.
You will use single-molecule imaging and advanced computational methods
developed by our lab to visualize and quantify the dynamics and biophysical
properties of membrane-less organelles (MLOs). Our state-of-the-art imaging
platforms (SMLM/SIM/SOFI) are combined with commercial or homemade optical
tweezers and scanning probe microscopes.
To apply, please send your complete application in a single PDF file,
including a cover letter, full CV including publication list and the contact
information of 3 referees, to email@example.com .
Submitted applications will be evaluated immediately, and the search will
remain open until the position(s) is filled.
Your profile :
We want to recruit postdoc who is familiar with any of the following topics:
Prior backgrounds in optical tweezers, scanning probe microscopy, single-
molecule FRET, as well as single molecule imaging in live mammalian cells are
Excellent knowledge of optical design, image and computational analysis a
PhD in biophysics, optics or a related discipline
The ability to work effectively in a team and possess good communication
We are looking for independent, creative and highly motivated postdoctoral
scientists interested in exploring biophysical principles governing the
function and regulation of cellular phase transitions.
