A postdoctoral position in single molecule biophysics is available in the Messersmith group at Northwestern University. The overall goals of the research are to elucidate the molecular details of mussel adhesive protein adhesion (for example, see PNAS 2006, 103, 12999). We seek self-motivated individuals interested in a stimulating and interdisciplinary research environment where fundamental biophysics experiments inform the development of biologically inspired materials.
