Postdoctoral Associate in Marine Invertebrate Stem Cell Biology, Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience, University of Florida

Posted 5/11/2021

The University of Florida, Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience, Schnitzler Lab seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to work on our NIH-funded stem cell heterogeneity project in the marine hydroid Hydractinia, using modern experimental and computational biology techniques. The project includes characterizing subpopulations of adult stem cells including investigating how stem cells are maintained and how progenitor populations are specified in different contexts, including regeneration. The postdoctoral associate will be expected to lead research activities related to these topics, including designing and performing experiments, developing and executing protocols, performing data analysis, and writing manuscripts and grants. The position will involve performing research as part of a team, as well as training and mentoring other lab members.

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in molecular and cellular biology techniques. Experience with cnidarians or other marine invertebrate organisms would also be advantageous. Information about the Whitney Laboratory can be found at Preference to applicants that can start September 2021 or earlier.
