Postdoctoral Scholars - Laboratory of Fluorescence Dynamics

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and years of experience.

The UC Irvine Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) in the Samueli School of Engineering is anticipating openings for postdoctoral scholar positions (Levels I-IV) in the Laboratory for Fluorescence Dynamics.

Requirements: Seeking qualified candidates to pursue specialized research and develop novel imaging techniques for the study of biological systems, specifically in analysis of protein dynamics in cells. Positions will be focused on the development of fluorescence methods and instrumentation techniques.

Qualified candidates should hold a doctorate in physics, biology, biochemistry, biophysics, biomedical engineering or closely related field. Experience with instrument development, fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy with broad interests in biology a plus. Specific experience with cellular imaging, computational analysis, lifetime imaging, multiphoton excitation microscopy and fluorescence correlation spectroscopies (image, fluctuation and RICS) is desirable. Preferred qualifications include effective and professional communication skills.

This is an ongoing recruitment and positions are dependent upon availability of extramural funding. Initial appointments are for one year and renewal is based on job performance and availability of support.
