Our interdisciplinary research group at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is actively engaged in investigating the biological implications of engineered nanomaterials with particular emphasis on cellular and molecular mechanisms of nano-biointeractions, cellular fate, dosimetry, high resolution imaging in vitro and in vivo, proteomics, bioinformatics, and computational and systems toxicology. Up to three postdoctoral positions are available to conduct research in these areas of nanomaterial-biological interactions, supported by grants from the NIH. Successful candidates will interact with collaborators across multiple disciplines. Responsibilities include research, preparation of manuscripts for publication, and contribution to grant writing. The PNNL possesses world class facilities and expertise in areas of nanomaterial design and characterization, confocal and scanning probe microscopies, proteomics, imaging and computation to support this research.
Candidates must have received a PhD in a biomedical science, chemistry, physics, or engineering fields related to nanotechnology within the past five years from an accredited college or university. All staff at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory must be able to demonstrate the legal right to work in the United States.
Preference will be given to applicants with demonstrated experience in pulmonary biology, investigation of macrophage function in vitro / in vivo, nanotoxicology, or systems toxicology. Familiarity with eukaryotic-microbial systems causing pneumonias is also desired. Strong communications skills are needed for multidisciplinary team interactions. Candidate should have excellent work habits: be motivated, meticulous, and organized.
