Postdoctoral position in Quantitative Live Imaging of Cell Fate Choice and Organization

Posted by , on 16 October 2019

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

The Posfai Lab at Princeton University ( is looking to recruit a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to study the molecular and cellular mechanisms of cell fate choice and emergent organization during early embryonic development, using the preimplantation mouse embryo as a model system. The project will combine genetic engineering and quantitative, high-resolution live imaging using light sheet microscopy to understand the finely coordinated spatiotemporal dynamics of developmental events on a molecular, cellular and whole embryo scale.


The postdoctoral candidate should have a strong interest in developmental biology and genetics. Experience in light sheet microscopy and/or computational image analysis is preferred, but not necessary. Motivation and excellence is valued more than previous field of study.


The candidate will benefit from an interdisciplinary and collaborative environment at Princeton and the vibrant and supportive atmosphere of a junior lab. Researchers at the rank of Postdoctoral Research Associate are ordinarily appointed for one year at a time. Appointments are reviewed annually to consider reappointment and salary level. The position is benefits-eligible.


To apply, email your CV and cover letter explaining your interests and motivation to Eszter Posfai ( and arrange for three reference letters to be sent on your behalf.
