A major research focus of the National Center for Biomimetic Nanoconductors conducted in the Brinker group is the development of functional protocells as vectors for targeted delivery of drugs, therapy agents, imaging agents, sensors, etc. into cells. Functional protocells consist of a nanostructured core enveloped within a lipid bilayer. To follow protocell delivery and ensuing cellular behavior, we are assembling a state of the art Bio-AFM system (Asylum/Nikon) with additional Cyto-Viva illumination optics enabling optical imaging of sub-micron objects. We also have access to some very good novel optical microscopes combining SERS, TIRF, confocal etc. Brinker has a position for a post-doctoral fellow to assemble and run this bio-imaging facility. The fellow will study nanostructure/protocell incorporation into cells as well as cellular integration into nanostructures (see 2006 Science article on website). Interested candidates should send their resume to Brinker at the following address.

The Biology Department (www.bio.umass.edu/biology) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position to start as soon as September 1, 2011. The department seeks a biologist in the area of Cellular Biophysics who employs biophysical techniques to study cellular or tissue function. Research areas might include, but are not limited to, the biophysical properties and function of excitable cells. Optogenetic and imaging approaches to the study of neurobiology are of particular interest. The successful candidate will have a primary appointment in the Biology Department and be part of a growing biophysics cluster that includes research groups in the Physics, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and Chemistry Departments. Application materials should include a curriculum vita, research plan, teaching statement, and 3 letters of recommendation. Paper applications can be sent to: Biophysics Search #R39907, Biology Department, Attn: Sally Ives, 611 North Pleasant Street, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA 01003. Alternatively, application materials may be sent via email to: BiophysicsSearch@bio.umass.edu
