An NSF-supported postdoctoral position is available in the Yakoby Lab https://yakoby.rutgers.edu/ to study the development and evolution of tissue patterning and morphogenesis in Drosophila oogenesis. The project includes the prediction and validation of cis-Regulatory Modules (CRMs) in the follicular epithelium of several Drosophila species. In addition, genome manipulations of Drosophila species will be used to study the evolution of tissue patterning and morphologies.
Highly-motivated individuals with a Ph.D. and a strong interest in developmental biology, who have extensive experience in molecular biology, including the use of CRISPR/Cas9, genetics, and bioinformatics, are encouraged to apply.
Please send a CV, a short statement of research interests, and three names of references to Dr. Nir Yakoby <email@example.com>. The Yakoby Lab is in the Biology Department https://biology.camden.rutgers.edu/ and the Center for Computational and Integrative Biology https://ccib.camden.rutgers.edu/ at Rutgers University Camden campus located in the Greater Philadelphia Area.
