Our laboratory uses a variety of genetic, biochemical, and molecular approaches to understand how the activity of microRNAs is modulated in response to developmental and environmental cues and how oscillatory gene expression contributes to normal temporal cell fate specification during development. The cross-disciplinary approach and application of a range of model systems (including C. elegans, D. melanogaster, and human tissue culture) in the Hammell lab will provide training and a variety of opportunities for a highly motivated scientist.
This position is fully funded.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory offers a highly collaborative social and scientific environment as well as a competitive salary and benefits in a beautiful location about one hour from New York City.
Ph.D in molecular biology or related field is required. Candidates should also be highly motivated and dedicated to research. Prior experience with model organisms is advantageous; however, those with a strong background in molecular genetic and/or biochemical techniques are also encouraged to apply.
If you are interested in joining the lab, please send a CV and a statement of your research accomplishments and interests along with the names of three references to: firstname.lastname@example.org, and apply online at http://www.cshl.edu/hr/jobs.html
