Currently advertised postdoc position in image analysis/systems biology of motility.

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 control signaling networks 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 coordination of cytoskeletal and membrane dynamics during migration, particularly in the tumor microenvironment. This position is funded by grants through the National Institutes of Health and the Army Research Office. Please contact Dr. Elston at telston@med.unc.edu or Dr. Hahn at khahn@med.unc.edu

US News & World Report ranks UNC Pharmacology as #3 in the world in their "Best Global Universities" ranking. UNC-Chapel Hill is located in central North Carolina midway between the coastal island beaches and the Smoky Mountains National Park.

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.

For more information please consult Dr. Song's faculty webpage or contact her by email.
