Projects will involve multi-color super-resolution fluorescence imaging of protein organizations in neurons, cancer cells, and T-cells, and/or transcriptome-scale RNA imaging in neurons and T-cells.

Knowledge in cell biology, neurobiology, immunology, cancer biology, or RNA biology would be a plus. Interested and qualified applicants must submit applications electronically to include a cover letter describing your background, prior training, and research interests, as well as a CV which includes a list of publications. Following a screening of these initial application materials, appropriate candidates will be contacted by email for letters of reference.
