Postdoc(s) or Ph.D. Student(s) in Zebrafish Developmental Genetics and Synchrotron Imaging

Posted 2/10/2017

The position(s): Come join an interdisciplinary team of researchers in the lab of Dr. Brian F. Eames in the Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology at the University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon, SK, Canada).  While evolutionary and tissue engineering projects are also ongoing in the lab, up to 2 positions are currently available for a project using developmental genetics and imaging (confocal and novel synchrotron methods) to analyze the role of growth factor signalling and cartilage proteoglycans in zebrafish skeletogenesis. 

Requisites: Experience in developmental biology and/or genetics is required for this position.  Additional molecular biology and imaging experience is preferred.  My current grants can support the successful applicant for at least three years, but applications for scholarship funding would be required as well.  Fluency in spoken and written English is required.

Applications: Please send your CV (including names of 3 references), an unofficial copy of TOEFL results, if appropriate, and a written statement describing how your research experience and career goals make you the perfect candidate for this position to Dr. Eames at  Applicants are reviewed from now until positions are filled.
