Dr. Mariusz Karbowski, Ph.D., at the Center for Biomedical Engineering and Technology—BioMET— is seeking qualified applicants for NIH-funded postdoctoral position in his laboratory at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore. The position is immediately available. The overall focus of the Karbowski lab is to understand the mechanisms of ubiquitin-mediated control of mitochondrial function in mammalian cells. A successful candidate will use genetically modified cells and primary neurons to determine functions of recently identified mitochondrial components of the ubiquitin-proteasome system. Superresolution fluorescent imaging, protein biochemistry, and cell biology methods will be applied in these studies.
We are seeking candidates who are highly motivated and career-oriented. Candidates should have a Ph. D. degree completed within the last 3 years, with a strong background in cell and molecular biology. A publication record is also proffered. Individuals with a strong molecular biology background, including generation of mammalian expression vectors and/or CRISPR and expertise in mammalian cell culture, will be given preference. Interested individuals should submit a brief cover letter containing a summary of their prior work, research interests, and career goals along with a CV and contact information of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
