CB# 7365
UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine
Chapel Hill, NC 27599

Positions Available

If you are interested in a position with the Hahn lab, please contact Dr. Hahn by email, providing your CV.

  • We are seeking graduate students or postdoctoral fellows with interests in protein engineering and the spatio-temporal dynamics of signaling networks and the cytoskeleton.  Projects focus on a) novel biosensor design, or methods for control of protein function in vivo with light or through designed allosteric regulation, and b) use of these tools to dissect rapid spatio-temporal dynamics of networks controlling cell morphodynamics or the integration of extracellular cues. Some projects are in collaboration with Nikolay Dokholyan (UNC Biochemistry, http://danger.med.unc.edu/ ), Brian Kuhlman (UNC Biochemistry, https://sites.google.com/site/kuhlmanlabwebpage/Home ), Tim Elston (UNC Pharmacology, http://www.med.unc.edu/pharm/elstonlab/) or Gaudenz Danuser (Harvard Systems Biology, http://lccb.hms.harvard.edu/).

  • We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow experienced in the design and execution of complex multi-step organic syntheses, and interested in chemical biology. This position offers the opportunity for an organic chemist to move into a new area of research, focusing on projects that combine organic synthesis and molecular biology, developing and applying new tools for the imaging and manipulation of signaling pathways in vivo.

  • We are seeking postdoctoral fellows to work on the development of novel microscopes and related biophysical techniques. These projects require an understanding of microscope design and/or of programming for microscope automation and image analysis.
