Thomas Hunt Morgan Postdoctoral Fellowship in Regenerative Biology

Posted by , on 30 January 2020

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

The Department of Biology at the University of Kentucky (UK) is seeking applications for the Thomas Hunt Morgan Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Seifert Lab.  This fellowship provides exceptional PhDs an opportunity to conduct independent research in any aspect of regenerative biology.  The Fellows are funded for two years through the College of Arts and Sciences and provided support to develop their own projects while they build external funding portfolios as a pathway toward independence.  The Seifert lab uses an array of animal models to study complex tissue regeneration and maintains large, active breeding colonies of spiny mice (Acomys cahirinus) and salamanders at UK.

The Department of Biology houses a strong group of research labs interested in regenerative and stem cell biology using a diverse array of animal models (e.g., spiny mice, salamanders, planarians, lampreys, zebrafish) and in vitro systems.  Together, these labs create a vibrant atmosphere to pursue interdisciplinary projects incorporating cutting edge science in regenerative, developmental, and evolutionary biology.

Review of applications will begin on a rolling basis and will continue until a candidate is selected.  Candidates will have completed their Ph.D. prior to starting the position but need not have defended their dissertation prior to applying.

Interested applicants should apply online at Applicants should submit their application materials through the UK Jobs site (upload under Specific Request 1) as well as send a single pdf document to Ashley Seifert ( Application materials submitted through UK Jobs as well as submitted to Dr. Seifert should include a CV, names of three references, and a 2-page statement of proposed research interest. Informal inquiries by email are strongly encouraged.  More information is available here:
