Postdoctoral Position, Genetics and Development of Morphological Evolution, University of Oklahoma

Posted 6/21/2017

A postdoctoral position is available in J.P. Masly’s lab at the University of Oklahoma ( to study the genetic, developmental, and evolutionary bases of morphological variation among Drosophila species.  Our research focuses on understanding how evolutionary change at the genetic level directs variation in development that gives rise to species-specific phenotypic differences.

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D., and will also have a strong background and research interests in evolutionary biology, developmental biology, and genetics.  Candidates with experience in Drosophila genetics and molecular biology are particularly encouraged to apply. The initial appointment will be made for one year, with a possible extension up to three years.  Salary will be commensurate with experience and the start date is flexible.

To apply, visit and submit the following materials for job position number 171344:
