The Center for Proteomics, a state-of-the-art proteomics facility at Case Western Reserve University, is seeking a Postdoctoral fellow to work on projects related to viruses and small, cell-derived vesicles (extracellular vesicles), and efforts to repurpose these for therapeutic RNA and protein delivery including in vivo genome editing. Candidates with strong expertise in RNA virus biology, extracellular vesicle research, flow cytometry, and small animal experimentation are highly encouraged to apply. The responsibilities of this position include performing experimental work, interacting with laboratory members and departmental staff, and – as the post-doctoral fellow becomes more established – supervising research assistants who will help the fellow achieve their research goals. The post-doctoral fellow will also be involved in dissemination of their research results by helping to write and edit scientific manuscripts and presentation of data at local and national meetings. Expertise with PCR, recombinant DNA technology, and mammalian cell culture will be a plus. Qualified applicants will have a Ph.D. in microbiology or immunology or a relevant biological discipline and will have excellent oral and written communication skills. Competitive salaries and benefits are available for qualified candidates.
