A postdoctoral research position is available in the laboratory of Martin J. Cohn in the Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at the University of Florida. The Cohn lab uses a wide variety of organisms and multidisciplinary approaches to investigate the mechanisms of appendage development and evolution. A major focus of the lab is development of the external genitalia, including the causes of sex differences and congenital anomalies. The successful applicant will join a project that is investigating 3-D patterning and molecular regionalization of cell types in the genitalia. The project is part of GUDMAP (GenitoUrinary Development Molecular Anatomy Project), a NIDDK-funded U01 consortium of highly interactive investigators located at 10 different institutions. The postdoc will have opportunities to interact with other consortium members through a variety of GUDMAP activities. This is a funded position, but postdocs in the Cohn lab are encouraged to develop independent projects and to build their own research and external funding portfolios, with a view towards becoming independent investigators.
Expertise in single-cell RNA-seq, computational biology, and/or bioinformatics is preferred. Informal inquiries are strongly encouraged and should be directed to the PI (email@example.com).
Formal applications must be submitted online by December 8, 2018, and should include a curriculum vitae, names of three references, and a brief description of research interests and goals.
