We are looking for a person to conduct single molecule fluorescence experiments using total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy on zebrafish embryos expressing photoactivatable GFP. Candidate will also conduct microfluidic, continuous flow, kinetics experiments on high value protein samples from biopsies or small quantity protein expression systems. Candidate needs familiarity with: fluorescence microscopy, prototyping and troubleshooting optical setups for laser excitation and low light level fluorescence detection in a microscope, and microfluidic fabrication. A second separate line of research involves electron microscope reconstruction of GFP tagged cardiac myosin structure using single particle analysis. Candidate needs familiarity with: metal replicate, negative staining, and freeze-fractured intact protein imaging with electron microcopy. For either track the candidate will also be familiar with protein biochemistry and quantitative data analysis. Any candidate will also be expected to write manuscripts reporting research findings, originate new, related, or follow-up research projects, and to originate/participate in grant proposal writing to support the lab.
