Postdoctoral Associate Position

A multidisciplinary team at the Institute of Biology of Aging and Metabolism and the Department of Chemistry, University of Minnesota, is hiring a Postdoctoral Associate to join a project investigating the role of the immune system in cell senescence. The successful candidate is expected to have a strong background in single cell analysis using mass cytometry, flow cytometry or any other single-cell technology. A Ph.D. in bioanalytical chemistry, bioinformatics, biophysics, or related disciplines is preferred.

Scope of project. The scientist will be responsible for driving a project based on mass cytometric characterization of immune cells and cell types involved in senescent pathways. As such the scientist will be conducting animal studies, mass cytometric experiments, and comprehensive data analysis. Preparation and delivery of high-quality reports is essential. As part of the team, the scientist is expected to contribute to the intellectual advancement of the project and supervise junior scientists. Training will be provided to strengthen background as needed.

Environment. The University of Minnesota, founded in the belief that all people are enriched by understanding, is dedicated to the advancement of learning and the search for truth; to the sharing of this knowledge through education for a diverse community; and to the application of this knowledge to benefit the people of the state, the nation, and the world.

The University of Minnesota – Twin Cities provides an intellectually thriving environment, where multidisciplinary efforts flourish. This position will interact with a diverse group of scientists who value diversity, equity and inclusion. While the position is hosted in the Department of Chemistry, which houses the mass cytometric resources, the project is funded through the recently formed Institute of Biology of Aging and Metabolism. The campus is located nearby downtown Minneapolis over the Mississippi River. It has all the amenities of an urban center, while being a gate for multiple outdoor activities.

Salary and start date: The salary is based on NIH standards, which are based on years of experience. The benefits are defined as part of the job classification established by the University of Minnesota. Start date: Immediately.
