The Treisman lab studies various aspects of the development of the Drosophila visual system, including cell fate determination in the retina, cell-cell signaling, and synaptic partner selection and synapse formation in the developing visual circuits. We are seeking a motivated and creative postdoctoral researcher interested in pursuing a project related to these topics. The Skirball Institute for Biomolecular Medicine offers a highly collaborative research environment located in the heart of New York City.
Candidates should have recently obtained or be about to obtain a Ph.D. in a field of biological science and should have a strong publication record. Experience in genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, cell culture and/or imaging would be an advantage. Please send a CV, statement of research interests and contact information for three references to Jessica.Treisman@med.nyu.edu.
