Postdoctoral Positions in Single-Molecule Biophysics

Job Description

The Single-Molecule Biophysics and Applied Biophotonics research group at New York University School of Medicine (http://www.rothenberglab.com/) is seeking highly motivated postdoctoral scientists with an interest in cutting-edge interdisciplinary biophysical work and a proven academic track record.

The research in our laboratory focuses on the diverse molecular mechanisms of DNA Repair and DNA Damage Response, their dysfunction in human disease and cancer, and their utilization as target for therapeutic intervention. Our experimental approach employs a set of innovative single-molecule based cellular imaging technologies including:  live cell single-molecule tracking, super-resolution microscopy and single-molecule FRET; along with contemporary cell biology, molecular biology and biochemical approaches.


We seek qualified candidates with diverse academic backgrounds including biophysics, biophysical chemistry, biophotonics, fluorescence microscopy, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry and related experimental techniques (PhD in biological physics, biophysical chemistry, engineering, biochemistry, cell biology, chemistry etc.).

Demonstrated ability to work effectively and independently in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary environment is essential. Excellence in regular, proactive communication and problem solving as part of a team, strong record keeping, a great work ethic, and initiative are also essential.

Candidates who have solid training in biophysical techniques, especially single-molecule and/or fluorescence techniques, instrument design and related coding and analysis, and are highly self-motivated in research are encouraged to apply.

Candidates with a strong skill set in molecular and cellular biology, and the utilization of fluorescence microscopy techniques are also encouraged to apply.


Interested applicants should submit a detailed CV, statement of research interests, and have three reference letters sent to:

Prof. Eli Rothenberg
