Postdoctoral Positions in Systems Developmental Biology at Yale University

Posted 5/4/2018

The Holley Lab at Yale University studies the systems biology and biomechanics of early spinal column development in zebrafish (Holley Lab website). The lab is in the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology on Yale’s main campus. The lab is moving into state of the art facilities in the new Yale Science Building which will house the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, labs from the Departments of Physics and Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry and the new Quantitative Biology Institute. The Holley Lab is an inter-disciplinary team working at the interface between biology and the physical sciences.

The lab seeks postdocs with molecular or developmental biology expertise who are interested in using advanced imaging techniques such as live lightsheet and confocal microcopy, Fluorescence Correlation Spectroscopy (FCS) and FRET/FLIM and quantitative data analysis to study embryonic development. The lab is also interested in postdocs with a biophysics, physics or engineering background who are interested in theoretical and experimental developmental biology.

Applicants should email Scott Holley ( with a CV and a short statement of their research interests.
