Postdoctoral Researcher to Study Cell Migration Required for Organ Formation in Vivo (Stathopoulos Lab)

A postdoctoral research fellow position is available to study how cell migration contributes to organ formation during Drosophila embryogenesis. This project will build on our recent progress in this area (Macabenta & Stathopoulos, Development 2019) by using cutting-edge live imaging, single cell sequencing, and molecular approaches to analyze both homo- and heterotypic cell-cell interactions in vivo. The successful applicant will join Angelike Stathopoulos's lab at Caltech to work on this NIH funded project. For further details of research within the Stathopoulos lab, see: http://stathlab.caltech.edu. You should hold or be working towards a PhD in a biological science, be highly motivated and have an interest in studying cell-cell interactions. The position is available for 3 years, with possibility of extension.

Applications are due by April 15, 2022. Candidates should send CV, include list of publications, a brief statement of research interests, and names and contact details for threes references, to pat2010@caltech.edu. For questions regarding the position, shortlisting, and interviews contact angelike@caltech.edu.

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.
