Embark on independent career as faculty at UCSD. Persistence, accuracy, diplomacy. My weakness is that I sometimes become emotionally invested in a project up to a point that I feel disappointed when it doesn’t turn out well. Cleaning sea urchin tanks after the last person neglected them for a week or more. It is the end of my postdoctoral research career and I am ready to proceed to an independent career as faculty. Managing the “lab family” when there are character clashes. Figuring out what the talents are. It might take a while and sometimes too long to figure it out. Students might get discouraged on their way to find out. We have to walk the thin line of pushing and pulling them to stay on track. I have found that prestigious, successful labs often draw highly skilled, strong willed people. The dynamic between personalities can be a source of contention and it takes diplomacy and mutual understanding to achieve a positive work environment. It is the position in AQUATOX. I feel like this area of science has barely had its surface scratched, and it would be exciting to pioneer further developments in the field. I am drawn to the combination of so many disciplines, including marine sciences, toxicology, and biochemistry. This offers the opportunity to cross-collaborate and integrate interdisciplinary research. Because I have a track record in the competencies you are seeking including a strong background in biochemistry and biophysical analysis techniques. I have done national and international research in Germany and in the US for over 10 years now. I have built up strong ties to faculty and government officials at UCSB, SIO, and through my panel work at CCST, the City of San Diego, and Portland State University. In addition, I have ongoing collaborations with toxicologists and biophysicists in Germany, Rumania, and the Netherlands. My research interests focus on understanding how xenobiotics enter and accumulate in marine organisms. The general questions that I am addressing include: What kind of transport systems are involved in pollutant recognition and exclusion from cells? Why do transporters fail to recognize persistent organic pollutants? Can we determine the structural basis for pollutant/transporter (non-)interactions? Are these interaction patterns conserved across species and thus allow for the prediction of their bioaccumulation? And finally, can we use structural information for the design of safer industrial chemicals? Less
