A fully funded (up to 3 years) postdoctoral position is available in the Ettensohn laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. This project will use 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 uses a combination of genomic, molecular, and cellular approaches to investigate the gene regulatory control of embryogenesis.
Applicants should have recently obtained a Ph.D. degree in an area relevant to molecular biology, genomics, and/or developmental 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.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, a CV, and contact information for 2-3 referees to Charles Ettensohn (firstname.lastname@example.org).
