Post-doctoral position in single molecule biophysics

Department of Physics at Iowa State University is currently hiring talented post-doctoral researchers in the field of single molecule biophysics. My lab uses single molecule AFM force measurements and single molecule FRET to study key molecular recognition events in biology. We are also interested in developing novel technologies to simultaneously manipulate and detect single molecules. You can find more information on our research at Some of our recent publications include 1.

(in press) Talented scientists trained in the biological sciences or experimental physical sciences are strongly encouraged to apply. I am particularly looking for individuals with experience in single molecule biophysics. If interested, please send your CV and a list of references to Sanjeevi Sivasankar at
