Post-Doctoral Positions in Evolutionary Developmental Biology

Posted by , on 23 January 2015

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

Fully funded post-doctoral positions are available to investigate molecular, genetic and cell biological mechanisms of development in the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis in the Gibson lab at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research.  Broad project goals are: 1) To utilize established genome engineering and advanced imaging methods to investigate the morphogenesis of polarized epithelia during early embryonic development and 2) To utilize established gain- and loss-of-function approaches to interrogate signal transduction, pattern formation, and growth control in an early-branching metazoan system. Specific research goals are flexible and can be fit to the interests of successful applicants.

Candidates should be dynamic and highly motivated with a demonstrated record of creativity and a recent PhD degree. Experience in genomics, cell and molecular biology and experimental embryology are highly desired, along with training in confocal microscopy and phylogenetic analysis. To apply, please send a single .pdf file containing your CV, email addresses for 3 references, publications and a statement of postdoctoral research interests to:
