Postdoc position in evolutionary and functional genomics

Posted on July 14, 2022
Expires: August 15, 2022

We seek two postdoctoral research associates to join our research efforts on evolutionary and functional genomics in zebrafish and sea lamprey. The successful applicants will work as part of an interdisciplinary group and leverage a newly renovated laboratory designed for rearing and genetically modifying sea lamprey and zebrafish to 1) study the genomic regulation of reproduction, development, or life history strategies in sea lamprey and zebrafish and 2) develop and evaluate the efficacy of approaches to generate genetically modified sea lamprey. Specific research questions are flexible depending on the selected candidates’ interests and could be related to human health, evo-devo, behavioral ecology, invasive species control, or other fields. Qualified applicants will have skills or background in functional genomics and bioinformatics; experience constructing CRISPR/CAS9 genome editing materials and microinjecting into fertilized eggs; interest in collaborating with graduate students and postdoctoral research associates from diverse disciplines and academic backgrounds; excellent written and oral communication skills; and experience working in a diverse environment and in programs designed to promote inclusion. Candidates with a doctorate in genetics, genomics, cell and molecular biology, or related fields will be considered. This is an annual position, renewable for up to five years.
