I currently have an opening in my research group for a post-doc to investigate the development of the vertebrate skeleton. Our lab studies the development of the neural crest derived skeleton in a comparative manner in chicken and fish embryos (zebrafish and Mexican tetra). This position will focus on the signals involved in the patterning of skeletal elements in one or more of these animals and the interactions between neural crest and mesodermal tissues. Applicants who have recently completed a PhD, have experience in molecular biology, developmental and cell biology are strongly encouraged to apply.
MSVU is an undergraduate university on the East Coast of Canada in beautiful Nova Scotia. Although a small university, I have a large research group. This position offers opportunities to interact with a growing research group of undergraduates and graduate students in a well equipped CFI funded lab. In addition, opportunities to teach, train undergraduates/graduate students and to help manage my lab will be available.
If you want to hone your teaching and management skills, as well as engage in exciting research then this position might be for you! Please email a CV, a one page statement of your research experience and interests, and the contact information for three referees to:
