Postdoc at Brown University (Providence, RI) for Cell and Developmental Biology

Posted 6/20/2018

We are looking to hire a talented full-time Postdoctoral fellow who conducts her/his independent research under PI’s supervision.

In our group, two major projects are currently undertaken:

  1. Cell and Developmental Biology: Identifying how germline factors contributes to cellular functions and development, using sea urchin embryonic cells and human cancer cells.
  2. Evolutionary Developmental Biology: Discovering how the molecular evolution alters the developmental program and contributes to species diversity, using multiple echinoderm embryos.

Both projects require skills in cell biology, embryology or live imaging such as microinjection, optogenetic manipulations of a protein, and 4D-confocal imaging. Experience in Biochemical and bioinformatic approaches is also welcomed. The PI will provide necessary trainings both in experiments and manuscript/grant writing.

We greatly appreciate one’s independent thinking, creativity, curiosity, enthusiasm, and hard working. This is an excellent job opportunity for individuals who seek to develop their own research and eventually to proceed to a next step of their career in next 2-5 years.

Interested individuals should contact: mamiko_yajima@brown.edu. Please enclose your CV, Cover letter and reprints of your representative works (if any). Reviews will begin immediately and continue until position is filled.
