Postdoctoral Research Position in Macrophage Cell Biology and Intravital Microscopy

The laboratories of Dr. Adam Hoppe and Dr. Darci Fink at South Dakota State University invite applications for a full-time postdoctoral research fellow.  This position will lead a collaborative effort between these two research groups to extend studies of macrophage Fc receptor-mediated phagocytosis and macrophage-lymphatic interactions to an intravital microscopy platform.

Dr. Adam Hoppe is the director of a cross-disciplinary multi-institution research center - the BioSystems Networks and Translational Research Center (BioSNTR; <www.biosntr.sdepscor.org>).  BioSNTR provides a rich network of collaborative scientists across South Dakota with state-of-the-art imaging and bioinformatics tools to address complex biological questions.  The successful applicant will have access to world-class instrumentation and computing resources including an Olympus FLUOVIEW FVMPE-RS Multi Photon Laser Scanning Microscope equipped with two infrared wavelength femtosecond pulse lasers, an Illumina NextSeq high-throughput next-generation sequencing platform, and a high performance computing cluster.

Responsibilities:

-        Protocol generation, experimental design, and research project management

-        Publication of research findings and assistance in drafting grant proposals

-        Laboratory mouse work including survival surgery and adoptive transfer experiments

-        Intravital two-photon microscopy

-        General laboratory techniques including molecular biology, protein biochemistry, cell culture, immunohistochemistry, and immunofluorescence

-        Electronic lab notebook-based record keeping

-        May supervise undergraduate or graduate student research projects

-        May assist in general laboratory management duties such as maintaining laboratory equipment, purchasing supplies, and maintaining compliance

Minimum Qualifications:

-        Earned PhD or equivalent degree in Cell Biology, Biochemistry, or a related discipline by start date

-        Demonstrated research productivity in Cell Biology, Biochemistry, or a related discipline

-        Effective scientific writing and interpersonal communication skills

Preferred Qualifications:

-        Experience in advanced fluorescence microscopy (e.g. confocal, two-photon, TIRF, intravital)

-        Experience with laboratory mice including surgical procedures and transgenic breeding schemes

-        Experience in mammalian cell culture techniques and cell-based assays, preferably with macrophages or endothelial cells

-        Experience in CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing

-        Experience in image analysis or bioinformatics

-        Motivation and enthusiasm!

Salary:
Commensurate with qualifications.  Includes full benefits.
