In the fall, the laboratory of Craig E. Cameron will be moving to the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at The University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill, NC. Our laboratory has established a program in “single-cell virology,” which uses microfluidic devices to capture and isolate single cells infected with reporter viruses and to monitor infection dynamics in real time by live-cell imaging [Guo, Li et al (2017) Cell Reports 21: 1692]. We have an immediate opening for a PhD-level scientist to learn this technology at Penn State and then transfer the technology to UNC in the fall. The ideal candidate will be interested in an Assistant Research Professor position. This position will be short term at PSU with the possibility of a long-term position at UNC with responsibilities maintaining and improving the single-cell technology, collaborating with biologists on the design of experiments, training graduate and postdoctoral students to use the technology, and contributing substantively to preparation of manuscripts and grant applications. We will be most excited by applicants with experience in the design and fabrication of microfluidic devices, fluorescence imaging, and statistical analysis of large data sets. Questions regarding the position can be addressed by contacting Dr. Craig E. Cameron directly via email,
