One exciting positon is open to join Nakamura lab as a Postdoctoral Researcher. Our team reveals genetic mechanisms of the fish-to-tetrapod transition combining functional genomics, embryology, and anatomy (also visit our lab website; http://nakamuralab.com/). The successful candidate will lead research projects with graduate and undergraduate students in the lab.
Minimum Education and Experience:
Requirements for the position include Ph.D's degree in one of the following area – developmental biology, molecular biology, evolutionary biology, genomics, or related fields. The successful candidate will lead research projects to understand the genetic mechanisms underlying the fish-to-tetrapod transition or fish diversity (including cartilaginous fish). Extensive knowledge about molecular biology and passion for fish research are necessary. Experience in genomics (RNA-seq, genome-seq. etc.), paleontology, or comparative anatomy will be a plus, but is not strictly required. The candidate will most importantly demonstrate an ability to lead competitive research projects.
