Post-Doctoral Positions in Fluorescence Microscopy of Antibodies and Fc receptors

Post-doctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Prof. E. Sally Ward and Prof. Raimund J. Ober at UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas. Projects will involve the development and/or implementation of state-of-the-art methods in fluorescence imaging to study the intracellular trafficking of antibodies and the Fc receptor, FcRn. Imaging methods will include the use of multifocal plane microscopy and superresolution approaches for single molecules/quantum dots to build up a three dimensional, dynamic understanding of intracellular processes. These studies have direct relevance to the rapidly expanding use of antibodies in the biopharma industry as therapeutics in autoimmunity, infectious diseases and cancer.

Highly motivated individuals with a background in any biological area, (bio)engineering, biotechnology, chemistry, physics, mathematics or any other physical science will be considered. Direct experience is not necessary. These positions provide the opportunity for the successful candidate to gain experience in advanced microscopic techniques applied to important problems in biotechnology.
