The Center for Intelligent Molecular Diagnostics at the Tulane University School of Medicine is seeking applications for multiple Postdoctoral Fellows with background in micro or nanotechnologies, biosensors, protein chemistry, proteomics, genomics, extracellular vesicles, biostatistics or machine learning. The Postdoctoral Fellow will be responsible for developing in vitro diagnosis technologies and approaches to detect and measure biomarkers associated with important human diseases and to employ these methods to analyze samples from animal models of human disease and human subjects to test and validate their performance.
Successful applicants are expected to join Professor Tony Hu’s research group and participate in projects funded by NIH, DOD, CDC, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Responsibilities will include design and execution of experiments using the following techniques: nanomaterial design and fabrication, biosensor development, nanopore sequencing, cell culture, protein and exosome purification, mass spectrometry operation and data analysis, and most standard laboratory assays and procedures including WB, IP, cell proliferation/growth, and ELISA; the ability to develop and validate new technologies and approaches to detect and measure disease biomarkers using mass spectrometry; the ability to organize and maintain sample repositories; analyze data; prepare data charts and present experimental findings. Additionally, the selected candidate will be expected to review manuscripts, draft new manuscripts, and write reviews or book articles, as well as grant applications.
Qualifications include a recent Ph.D. in any field of biosensor, bioengineering, material science, nanotechnology, nanopore sequencing (especially for peptide identification), mass spectrometry, proteomics, or related field, with demonstrated skills in biosensor design and fabrication, nanobiosensors, machine learning, protein chemistry, peptide sequencing, MALDI, LC-MS/MS and biostatistics.
