Postdoctoral Position in Nucleus Biomechanics and Mechanobiology
Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA

A postdoctoral position in nucleus biomechanics and mechanobiology is available in the Soft Tissue Bioengineering Laboratory in the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering.

The research focus for the position is on the measurement of intranuclear mechanics within single cells, both in vitro and in vivo. A candidate with a background in cell mechanics and optical imaging is preferred. The candidate will be expected to develop experimental imaging techniques to visualize subcellular deformation and gene expression in defined tissue cultures and common animal (e.g. mouse) models. The candidate will also be expected to work with a highly interdisciplinary team of basic scientists. The position is funded by grants from NIH and NSF.

Purdue University is an equal opportunity employer. Candidates of underrepresented populations are encouraged to apply. Purdue is located in a large Midwestern college town, conveniently placed midway between Indianapolis and Chicago.

Applications for this position should include a CV, brief statement of research interests and background, and the contact information for 2-3 references, and should be emailed as an attachment to:
