The Gibson Laboratory at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research has funded positions opening in 2019 for postdoctoral fellows to help pioneer the growing field of cnidarian molecular genetics. Candidates are invited to develop an independent project investigating the molecular, genetic or cell biological mechanisms underlying development and/or regeneration in the sea anemone Nematostella vectensis. The lab has invested heavily in Nematostella method development over several years; new postdocs will be poised to leverage established gain- and loss-of-function approaches to interrogate development, regeneration, single cell biology and growth control in this new and highly tractable model organism. In addition to an unparalleled benefits package and state of the art facilities, the Stowers Institute offers excellent core facility support in single cell sequencing, computational biology, imaging and proteomics- a perfect launch pad for your independent career. Specific research goals within developmental, regenerative, and evolutionary biology are flexible and can be fit to the interests of successful applicants, who should be creative and independent with a clear record of graduate research productivity.
