Postdoctoral Position in Gene Regulatory Network Science (Peter Lab)
The Peter Lab is seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to work on the identification of gene regulatory circuits in sea urchin embryos. The Peter lab uses experimental and computational approaches to study the function of gene regulatory networks. For the experimental analysis of genomic circuits we use sea urchin embryos which are highly accessible for experimental approaches such as microinjection, in situ hybridizations, reporter assays, quantitative measurements of gene expression using Nanostring, QPCR, and transcriptome analyses, and gene perturbations by morpholinos and CRISPR.
Preferred candidates have a PhD and substantial experience in molecular or systems biology and/or developmental biology. Experience in computational modeling is an advantage but not required. Applications including a detailed curriculum vitae, a short statement of past and future research interests, and the names and contact details of three references should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
