A 3-year postdoc position is available in the group of Dr. Patrick Steinmetz at the Sars Centre in Bergen (Norway) to study the evolution of animal nutrient and growth homeostasis .
The project is based on a tissue-specific transcriptome analysis comparing fed and fasting animals in the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis. The successful applicant will be involved in further validating some of the resulting signalling, neuronal or growth control genes and studying their functional role in nutrient and growth homeostasis. With that aim, the applicant will use and further develop state-of-the-art functional techniques (CRISPR, transgenesis) and combine those with a diverse range of physiological, imaging and molecular biology techniques available.
