Job DescriptionThe Nolen laboratory at the University of Oregon (https://blogs.uoregon.edu/nolenlab/) seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to join our lab full time on a flexible start date. Our interest is in understanding the molecular basis for the regulation of the actin cytoskeleton. We apply a broad range of techniques to understand the structure-function relationships of actin regulatory proteins and how their molecular mechanisms dictate cellular function.
Approaches used include (but are not limited to) single molecule TIRF microscopy and ensemble biochemical methods, x-ray crystallography, yeast genetics and live cell imaging, structure-function analyses, protein engineering, mathematical modeling and biochemical reconstitution of actin assembly.
Successful candidates will have a Ph.D. in biochemistry, biophysics, structural or cellular biology or a related field, a published record of accomplishment, and good written and oral communication skills.
Eugene, Oregon is an ideal place to work and live, and is an outdoor enthusiast’s paradise. In addition to a mild climate with access to the ocean and mountains, Eugene has bike-friendly streets and a strong community feel. The University of Oregon is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Institution committed to cultural diversity and compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
To apply, please upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references to https://careers.uoregon.edu/en-us/job/527614/postdoctoral-scholar. The position will remain open until filled.
