The Hahn lab is seeking postdoctoral fellows for a range of projects spanning synthetic chemistry, systems biology, protein engineering, optogenetics, biosensors, motility and the cell biology of immune cells. We develop novel methods to visualize and control protein function in vivo, then apply these for a systems level analysis of cell behavior. We are also seeking postdocs with a background in microscope development and image analysis, to spearhead collaborations with microscope engineering labs and computational labs for quantitative imaging, single molecule analysis, cryoEM/biosensor correlation, super-resolution imaging and other novel microscope approaches. Organic synthesis positions offer the opportunity for organic chemists to move into a new area of research, focusing on projects that combine organic synthesis, molecular biology, and cell biology.

Postdoctoral Position, Modeling and Image Analysis of Motility Signaling Networks
The Labs of Drs. Tim Elston and Klaus Hahn are seeking a postdoctoral research associate to develop mathematical models and image analysis tools to investigate molecular mechanisms that regulate the spatiotemporal dynamics of signaling during cell migration. The Hahn lab develops engineered proteins to monitor and perturb signaling networks with precise spatiotemporal resolution in living cells and animals. The goal of this project is to combine these experimental approaches with quantitative image analysis and mathematical models developed in the Elston lab to elucidate signaling networks that coordinate the behavior of different subcellular systems and organelles during migration. This position is funded by a grant through the Army Research Office.
Positions available in Song lab
We are currently recruiting motivated postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, research associates, and undergraduates. Our research uses a combination of cutting-edge technologies and approaches, including optogenetics, high-resolution microscopy, in vitro and in vivo electrophysiology, genetic lineage tracing and molecular biology; experience in one or more of these approaches would be beneficial. However, we will consider candidates from a variety of backgrounds, provided they make a compelling case for contributing to the objectives and goals of the lab.
Postdoctoral Fellows: Prospective postdocs should submit a CV, a description of past research accomplishments and future research interests, and the names and contact information for at least two references.
Graduate Students: Graduate students can apply through the UNC graduate programs, such as BBSP or MSTP. The lab will be accepting rotation students starting from the fall 2013. Graduate students who are interested in our research should contact Dr. Juan Song directly to set up a time to discuss possible projects.
Research Associates: Individuals with at least a BA/BS degree and research experience that are particularly interested in the approaches and objectives of our lab should contact Dr. Juan Song directly about potential employment opportunities.
Undergraduate Students: There are several projects available to highly motivated undergraduates interested in our research. Please send a CV/resume to Dr. Juan Song along with a description of your research interests and career objectives. Our primary criterion for evaluating undergraduate applicants is evidence of a high degree of motivation and dedication.

Our lab integrates molecular genetics, animal models, and clinical epidemiologic measures to understand neurobiological processes underlying persistent pain as well as to identify unique markers for the diagnosis of clinical pain conditions in order to ultimately provide novel targets for the development of effective individualized pain therapeutics. Currently, we are seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work in the area of pain neurobiology. Experience in molecular biology, neuroscience, or related fields is required. Applicants must be highly motivated, organized, dependable, and possess excellent written and verbal communication skills.Please provide curriculum vitae and names/contact information for 3 references.
Andrea Nackley, PhD
Our laboratory is seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic post-doctoral fellow. The Whitehurst lab is focused on gaining a mechanistic understanding of the core molecular components that specify tumorigenic phenotypes at the cancer cell autonomous level. To realize this goal, the laboratory employs genome wide siRNA screening to isolate gene products supporting the survival, proliferation and chemosensitivity of tumor cells. Please see our paper in Whitehurst et al .: Nature, 2007, 446:815.
