Two funded postdoctoral positions (with support for up to 4 years) are available in the Ettensohn laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. This project uses the sea urchin embryo as a model to investigate gene regulatory networks- their activation, architecture, plasticity, control of morphogenetic processes, and evolution. The Ettensohn laboratory applies a combination of genomic, molecular, and cellular approaches to analyze the gene regulatory control of embryogenesis.
Applicants should have recently obtained a Ph.D. degree in an area relevant to developmental biology, genomics, and/or molecular biology, and possess a track record of productivity from their graduate studies. Applicants should be motivated to work independently in a supportive and collaborative environment. Skills in molecular biology are essential; some experience in genomics and bioinformatics is desirable.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, a CV, and contact information for three referees to Charles Ettensohn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
