The Echeverri lab at the MBL seeks a highly motivated individual to join the Eugene Bell Center for Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering as a Postdoctoral Researcher. The successful candidate will work on neurodegeneration and regeneration in axolotls.
The specific goal of the project is to examine how pathways that are essential for regeneration have evolved in different species with different regenerative capacity; focusing specifically on neural regeneration and spinal cord regeneration.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a biology related field. Must have prior experience working in the field of cell or developmental biology, as well as experience with molecular biology. Must be independent, enthusiastic, self-motivated, productive, and enjoy working in a highly collaborative environment.
The ideal candidate will have direct experience with working in vivo in an animal model. Previous experience with molecular biology, generating transgenic lines and CRISPR knockins/outs and imaging would be a plus.
