The Ettensohn Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh, PA, United States) seeks a motivated postdoctoral researcher to study the genetic control of early embryonic development. This project will use the early sea urchin embryo as a model to investigate gene regulatory networks- their activation in early embryonic lineages, architecture, plasticity, control of morphogenetic processes, and evolution. The laboratory applies a combination of genomic, molecular, and cell biological approaches to analyze the gene regulatory control of embryogenesis.

Candidates should have completed a PhD or MD/PhD in an area relevant to developmental biology, genomics, and/or molecular biology by the appointment start date. Candidates should be able to work independently, have strong written and oral communication skills, and possess a track record of productivity from their graduate studies. This is a fully supported position with funding in place for up to four years. Salary is commensurate with experience. The candidate will have access to state-of-the art facilities and will be exposed to a stimulating and highly collaborative environment in the Department of Biological Sciences.

To apply, please email a CV, a statement of research interests, and names and contact information for three references to
