Postdoc Opening

Cell Biology and Biophysics Section
Position Type:
Postdoctoral Fellowship

Postdoctoral positions are available in the Cell Biology and Biophysics Unit headed by Dr. Antonina Roll-Mecak. The lab combines biophysical and cell biological approaches to understand the mechanism underlying intracellular organization and movement, with a focus on the microtubule cytoskeleton. We are looking for candidates who wish to work on challenging biophysical and cell biological problems related to the microtubule cytoskeleton and have a strong background in molecular biology, protein biochemistry or cell biology. Experience in enzyme kinetics, X-ray crystallography, cytoskeletal biology and microscopy are a definite plus. The NIH has a long tradition of research excellence in cytoskeletal biology and offers a stimulating environment for postdoctoral fellows interested in interdisciplinary training in cell biology and biophysics.

Application Instructions

Please send a CV, a one-page research experience summary, and contact information of three references to Please write "Postdoctoral application" in the subject header. Candidates should have less than 4-years of postdoctoral experience.

The NINDS is a part of the National Institutes of Health within the Department of Health and Human Services.
