The Nakamura lab in Department of Genetics at Rutgers university is looking for a postdoctoral fellow in evolutionary developmental biology of fish. The long-term goal of Nakamura lab is to identify genetic mechanisms underlying fish diversity and its contribution to the fish-to-tetrapod transition. We are currently interested in how fin skeletons diversify and evolved into tetrapod limbs. To this end, we bridge functional genomics, genetics, and embryology using model and non-model organisms, such as zebrafish, skates, and sharks.
Interested applicants will apply to the INSPIRE program which supports salary up to three years, with health insurance and travel funds (https://rwjms.rutgers.edu/research/inspire/home). The INSPIRE program is supported by NIH-IRACDA and very successful as 70% of fellows obtained tenure-track academic positions after the training. INSPIRE fellows spend 70% of their time for conducting research and 30% in educational training.
Interested applicants should send a curriculum vitae and brief statement of current research to email@example.com (Tetsuya Nakamura).
