We seek two postdoctoral research associates to join our research efforts on evolutionary and functional genomics in zebrafish and sea lamprey. The successful applicants will work as part of an interdisciplinary group and leverage a newly renovated laboratory designed for rearing and genetically modifying sea lamprey and zebrafish to 1) study the genomic regulation of reproduction, development, or life history strategies in sea lamprey and zebrafish and 2) develop and evaluate the efficacy of approaches to generate genetically modified sea lamprey. Specific research questions are flexible depending on the selected candidates’ interests and could be related to human health, evo-devo, behavioral ecology, invasive species control, or other fields. Qualified applicants must have molecular biology and cloning skills and experience or interest in genome editing using CRISPR/CAS9; interest in collaborating with graduate students and postdoctoral research associates from diverse disciplines and academic backgrounds; excellent written and oral communication skills; and experience working in a diverse environment and in programs designed to promote inclusion. Candidates with a doctorate in molecular biology, genetics, genomics, or related fields will be considered.
