The laboratory of Dr. Paul N. Black in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Nebraska has openings for Postdoctoral Fellows to address fundamental questions linking fatty acid transport and trafficking with complex lipid metabolism. The Department is housed in the George W. Beadle Center, which includes state-of-the-art facilities in proteomics, metabolomics, genomics, crystallography, bioimaging, flow cytometry, bioinformatics, and biophysical spectroscopy. There are 31 PhD students and 24 postdoctoral fellows in the department, which together with 20 full-time faculty members creates a highly collaborative environment for training in the molecular life sciences. The Department of Biochemistry (http://biochem.unl.edu/) offers a highly collaborative environment for advanced training in the molecular life sciences.
We are seeking candidates with experience in lipid biochemistry and interests in applying high resolution methods to follow the trafficking and metabolism of different classes of exogenous fatty acids in mammalian cell lines. Expertise in mammalian cell culture and associated expression and knockdown technologies, lipid metabolism, and ability to apply state-of-the-art methods are preferred; candidates should e-mail their current CV, a description of their PhD work, and a list of three references as one document by clicking APPLY NOW.
