Open Post-Doc Position in Cell Mechanics at Brown University
A unique postdoctoral fellow position that bridges biophysics (biomechanics) with host defense is available in the Department of Surgery and the School of Engineering at Brown University. The successful applicant will investigate the role of dimension and other mechanical regulators on the function of human and murine neutrophils. The applicant will have earned a Ph.D. in physics, engineering or applied math but is interested bridging these disciplines with techniques in cell biology and live cell imaging to study leukocyte migration and immune function (Toyjanova et al., J.Biol. Chem., 2015; Stout et al., PNAS, 2016). Some small animal work may be involved to allow for experiments using methods of in vivo imaging. Mentoring will be provided collaboratively in the laboratories of Dr. Jonathan Reichner, Department of Surgery and Dr. Christian Franck, Department of Engineering. To apply, email cover letter, CV, statement of research interests and names of three references to: Jonathan Reichner, Ph.D. at: Reichner@brown.edu.
