Location: Chicago, ILLINOIS
Deadline: 18 Apr 2024

The Weinstein Lab (https://wlab.bio) and the Tay Lab (https://taylab.uchicago.edu/), at the University of Chicago's Medicine/Molecular Engineering departments are excited to announce a collaborative opportunity for a postdoctoral position. This unique position, formally associated with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative's Chicago Biohub, is at the forefront of an ambitious project aiming to revolutionize 3D spatial proteomics technology. Candidates will have the chance to engage in groundbreaking research that bridges the innovative DNA-based tools and analytical techniques developed by the Weinstein Lab with the cutting-edge single cell proteomics technologies developed by the Tay Lab.

Our collaborative project is focused on the development and application of novel technologies to unravel the complexities of the proteome of mammalian tissue in 3D, providing unprecedented insights into cellular functions and interactions. The postdoc will be embedded in a dynamic, interdisciplinary environment that spans the University of Chicago and the Chan Zuckerberg (CZ) Chicago Biohub, leveraging the combined expertise and resources of both labs. 

This includes access to state-of-the-art facilities, as well as a network of collaborators across the Chicago area's rich academic landscape. This CZ Biohub funded postdoc position provides a competetive salary and benefits.


We are looking for motivated, technologically savvy individuals who are eager to tackle challenging problems at the intersection of genomics, proteomics, and bioengineering. The ideal candidate will have a strong background in one or more of these areas, complemented by a commitment to interdisciplinary research. This position offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the development of next-generation biological tools and techniques, with the potential to transform our understanding of biological systems. Join us in this exciting venture to push the boundaries of molecular biology and engineering.
