Postdoctoral Fellow Position in Retinal Development and Disease
 

Position Type: Scientific

Classification: Ongoing

Status: Full-Time

Department: Pathology & Immunology

Job Summary

A postdoctoral position in developmental neurobiology is available immediately to study the molecular and genetic mechanisms of retinal development using the mouse and Drosophila as model systems at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.  Baylor has a large number of highly productive labs studying retinal development and function and provides an outstanding environment for cutting-edge research.  Projects focus on molecular mechanisms of retinal disease gene function and include a rich and extensive set of single-cell RNA sequencing data from throughout Drosophila eye development and adults as well as mouse models of human retinal disease.

Researchers with strong interest in retinal development, genomics, and gene function are welcome to apply.

Expertise in any of the following areas is highly valued though not required:

  • Drosophila genetics
  • Mouse genetics
  • Molecular biology
  • Developmental biology
  • Genomics

Highly motivated individuals who have recently obtained a Ph.D. with training in molecular biology and genetics should apply. Please send a CV, a list of publications, and three letters of reference (directly via e-mail from the referees) to:
