Multiple postdoctoral positions are available from the McNeill lab to study tissue organization and growth control using fly and/or mouse models (http://mcneilllab.wustl.edu). Ideal candidates will have experience working with model organisms, and be familiar with cellular, biochemical and molecular approaches, or live imaging approaches. Excellent organization and communication skills are required in order to work in a dynamic group of motivated scientists. The applicant is expected to have a PhD or MD/PhD in a relevant area, including, but not limited to cell biology, genetics and biochemistry. Knowledge of mouse kidney development, live imaging, cell signaling assays or Drosophila genetics is a plus. Potential research projects include understanding how the Hippo pathway regulates branching morphogenesis in the mouse kidney, and how Fat cadherins control planar polarity and the Hippo pathway in flies and mice.
Interested applicants should email a single PDF file consisting of a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a personal statement (including research interests and career goals) and should arrange for submission of three letters of reference to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
