Marko Lab Research Positions

Our group is always recruiting, looking for people who have the right skills and motivation to succeed in our research environment.

Candidates for Ph.D. study should apply to either the IBiS or Physics and Astronomy Ph.D. programs.

Postdoctoral candidates with fellowship support are considered with highest priority; non-fellowship candidates can be considered only when there is sufficient grant funding.

Graduate Student Research Assistant. Experimental research on single-DNA study of protein-DNA interactions, using magnetic tweezers and fluorescence visualization approaches. Should be NU Ph.D. student in Physics or in IBiS; students not yet at NU should apply directly to one of those two programs. Skill in biochemistry/instrumentation/optics/Labview a plus but not required.

Graduate Student Research Assistant. Experimental research on chromosome structure and dynamics, using micropipette manipulation methods combined with siRNA knockdowns and immunofluorescence imaging. Should be NU Ph.D. student in Physics or in IBiS; students not yet at NU should apply directly to one of those two programs. Background and/or aptitiude with 3d micromanipulation a huge plus.

Graduate Student Research Assistant. Theoretical research (statistical mechanics) on chromosome organization and single-DNA experiments. Should be NU Ph.D. student in Physics or possibly in IBiS; students not yet at NU should apply directly to one of those two programs. Background in physics and strong mathematical skills important.

Postdoctoral Researcher or Technician. Experimental research on chromosome structure using micropipette-based manipulation/visualization approaches. Expertise with micropipette manipulation of cell structures and cell/molecular biology experience a plus.
