    Opportunity: Staff Scientist @ Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory--Berkeley, CA (US)
    Submitted by Jeff Todd; posted on Wednesday, July 25, 2012



    As a member of the Life Sciences Division at Berkeley Lab, independently direct and maintain an extramurally funded, vigorous multi-disciplinary research program in specific disciplines critical for the Division's continued focus on understanding complex biological systems. Relevant areas of research include, but are not limited to: advanced bioimaging and biophysics, environmental epigenomics, and computational biology (bioinformatics, biostatistics, image analysis and visualization, and modeling).

    Specific Responsibilities:
    Direct and conduct independent research (75%)
    • Develop and apply state-of-the-art analytical imaging and biophysics instrumentation, and/or systems biology (omics) tools, and/or computational biology tools to address biology research challenges in one or more of the Division's focus areas: 1) elucidating pathways and mechanisms that impact cancer/aging, genome dynamics, and understanding of molecular machines; and 2) understanding effects on biological systems of energy-related impacts such as low-dose radiation, biofuels and microbial systems, and nanoparticles.
    • Establish world-class bioscience technology capabilities to strengthen the Division's and the Lab's prominence in development of novel bioscience tools.
    • Develop a strong independent research program while participating effectively in selected multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional research programs, in collaboration with scientists throughout LBNL as well as at neighboring University of California campuses.
    • Communicate research results through publications in internationally-recognized journals, as well as presentations (lectures, seminars, and posters at international scientific conferences).
    • Ensure that research responsibilities are aligned and consistent with the goals of the Life Sciences Division of LBNL and the US Department of Energy.
    Project and Laboratory Management (25%)
    • Manage and oversee day-to day function of the laboratory and independently troubleshoot issues.


    • PhD in Physical or Biomedical Sciences or related field and 3 or more years of related postdoctoral research or equivalent combination of education and experience
    • Proven ability to conduct independent, productive research in one or more of the bioscience technology areas identified above
    • Project management experience including experience with managing multiple projects simultaneously, and tracking budgets for each
    • Proven ability and experience to facilitate constructive and productive team efforts involving scientific and administrative support staff
    • Extensive experience in multi-disciplinary research, microscopy, cell biology, molecular biology, bioengineering or biophysics, and biochemistry
    • Excellent organizational, verbal, and written communication skills, demonstrated by publications, presentations, and successful grant applications
    • Demonstrated ability as an independent problem solver, team member, and effective project manager to accomplish project goals
    • Proven ability to secure extramural funding
