Saint Louis University, a Catholic, Jesuit institution dedicated to student learning, research, health care, and service, is seeking a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Chemistry. A successful candidate for the post-doctoral position should be capable of designing and completing multistep synthetic routes to make small molecules capable of acting as chemical probes for biological systems. Once synthesized, the candidate will be responsible for the biological evaluation of the small molecules using cell-based techniques. The primary project that the candidate will be responsible for is the design, synthesis, and biological evaluation of small molecule fluorescent probes to evaluate the pluripotency (quality) of induced pluripotent (engineered) stem cells. Additional responsibilities include maintaining a safe laboratory environment and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. Overall, this position consists of 60% chemical synthesis, 25% cell-based techniques, 10% mentoring, and 5% maintaining laboratories.
Application materials, including: 1) letter of interest, 2) curriculum vita, 3) graduate transcript, and 4) names and contact information for three references, must be submitted online at https://jobs.slu.edu.Link here. Best wishes to those interested.
