Assistant Professor / Associate Professor / Professor
Applicants are sought with interests in the basic molecular or cellular biosciences, and who could take a leadership role in the development of the newly established OHSU/FEI Living Lab, including a Titan Krios transmission cryo-electron microscope (TEM), a Helios NanoLab DualBeam microscope, an integrated electron and light microscope (Tecnai with iCorr) and a super resolution fluorescence microscopy (http://tinyurl.com/cl2va5w). The recruitment will be to the Center for Spatial Systems Biomedicine (http://www.ohsu.edu/ocssb) with an academic appointment in Biomedical Engineering and/or other basic science departments. This notice is in addition to the previously announced similar opening in the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology (IRC37050). In both cases, the successful applicant will be expected to develop an independent, extramurally-funded basic science research program, and to contribute to research training programs as well as medical education. Preference will be given to candidates with experience in the application of electron microscopy to problems in cell biology. The appointment can be at the Assistant, Associate or Full Professor level, so junior, mid-level and senior candidates are encouraged to apply.

Cardiovascular Development Postdoctoral Positions (Rugonyi Lab)
The laboratory of Dr. Sandra Rugonyi hasa postdoctoral fellow opening to work on projects related to cardiovascular development.
Candidates considered for this position must have:
i) strong background in mechanics and cardiovascular principles (flow, pressure, tissue strains/stresses);
ii) lab hands-on experience in imaging, measuring blood flows and/or blood pressures (experience manipulating embryos or small organisms is a plus);
iii) strong data analysis skills; and iv) intellectual curiosity. PhD in a relevant field is required. Candidates must also have a demonstrated ability for independent research, strong written and oral communication skills, and the ability to work as part of a collaborative team. Experience in cardiovascular mechanics is not required but it is preferred, however, a strong desire to perform advanced research in cardiovascular development is a must.
