Postdoctoral position in Drosophila Genetics, Emory University, Atlanta, GA

Posted 8/18/2021

The Rieder lab (, located in the Emory University Biology Department (Atlanta, GA), is searching for a postdoctoral researcher.

Our lab is broadly interested in transcription factor specificity, chromatin domain initiation during development, and histone gene regulation. We use classical Drosophila genetics and molecular biology/genomics techniques. Experience with molecular and genetic techniques is required, but it is NOT required that you already possess Drosophila experience.

You will lead research projects and mentor trainees. You are expected to present at lab and community meetings and the lab will support your participation at national and international conferences. You will join a synergistic group of researchers in the lab and department who value mutual support and respect.

Stipend is NIH postdoctoral scale and includes benefits. Emory University’s campus is located in northeast Atlanta, a thriving metropolis with one of the most connected airports in the world.

The Rieder Lab, the Biology Department, and Emory University are thoughtfully approaching disparities in diversity, equity, and inclusion amongst our academic communities.

If interested, email leila.rieder[at]emory{dot}edu and include your CV and a brief statement about why you are interested in the position. Please do not include reference letters.
