SUPER-RESOLUTION IMAGING OF PROTEIN DYNAMICS IN THE EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX, Case Western Reserve University, College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Physics 

Position Description: We are seeking to immediately fill two NIH R35 MIRA-funded postdoctoral positions in the lab of Professor Lydia Kisley, Department of Physics, at Case Western Reserve University [Cleveland, Ohio]. 

The start date is flexible. The Kisley Lab studies soft materials using single molecule microscopy with the goal to advance the single molecule materials field towards more complex, realistic conditions. The specific research area of both positions involves developing and applying super-resolution microscopy to study protein folding and diffusion within the extracellular matrix.

  • Postdoc Position 1 (Biophysics, Biomaterials): Cell culture, protein expression, spectroscopy of protein folding, optical microscopy. Requires a Ph.D. degree in Experimental Biophysics, Bioengineering, Biophysical Chemistry, or a similar field 
  • Postdoc Position 2 (Instrumentation): Fluorescence microscope construction, optics, image analysis, MATLAB/C-based programming. Requires a Ph.D. degree in Physics, Biophysics, Physical Chemistry, Electrical Engineering, or related field. 
Career Support: Stable support for these positions are available for up to five years at NIH NRSA Stipend Levels, conditional on annual reviews. Sponsorship for a visa is available, if required. The lab will also provide career development opportunities for these positions such as funds for conference travel and support in developing pedagogical skills and grantsmanship, based on the researchers’ future goals. 

The Kisley Research Group is collaborative and supports diversity. The candidate will be responsible for working with other postdoctoral researchers, graduate, and undergraduate students in the lab and participate in maintaining a strong lab culture within the research group. We believe that the best research results from working with a diverse team. We strongly encourage applications from female and minority candidates, along with those who have taken efforts to improve diversity in STEM. 

The Department of Physics at CWRU is part of a larger community of biophysics research and activities in the Cleveland area. Possibilities to collaborate and network with the CWRU School of Medicine, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Cleveland Clinic, and University Hospitals, among others, exist in these positions. 

Application Details: Applications will be evaluated as they are received until the position is filled. Please contact for more information.
