The Schnell Lab at the University of Michigan Medical School’s Department of Molecular & Integrative Physiology has two postdoctoral positions available in the areas of Mathematical Biology or Quantitative Cellular & Systems Engineering. One postdoctoral fellow will work on the development of standard-based tools and measurement approaches in enzymology. The other postdoctoral fellow will work on the development of models to investigate the molecular mechanisms regulating protein homeostasis.
The positions will allow both the flexibility of developing and leading individual projects as well as working as a team member. The successful applicant will interact with our collaborators in Germany, Norway, Great Britain and Israel, and may have the opportunity to train in experimental techniques as well. Candidates should have experience in the mathematical modeling and numerical solutions of differential equations, parameter estimation, and an understanding of biochemical kinetics, biochemistry and cell biology. These positions would suit individuals who have a PhD in engineering, applied mathematics, or theoretical physical-chemistry. Candidates must have experience writing publications, excellent communication skills and have a strong work ethic. These positions are available for up to four years. They will be renewed annually subject to satisfactory performance. Salary level is determined by the number of full years of relevant postdoctoral experience at the NIH NRSA scale.
The positions are full-time. Applicants are advised that they will undergo standard pre-employment screening for medical school and health care system. Applications should include a full CV, and a cover letter explaining suitability for the position. Candidates are encouraged to read some of our recent papers on enzymology or protein homeostasis, and write a brief proposal outlining how they can contribute to our projects and what they would like to do in our research group. Candidates must arrange for two referees to send references directly to Prof. Schnell. Review of applications will continue until the positions are filled.
For inquiries, please contact Prof. Santiago Schnell via email.
