The Audhya lab is currently seeking a postdoctoral fellow or technician to study membrane dynamics in C. elegans during embryogenesis. Our lab has generated a number of useful tools to study membrane remodeling in vivo, including the establishment of strains that stably express a wide variety of membrane-associated probes. The lab houses a swept field confocal microscopy, equipped with multiple laser lines to image several fluorescent probes simultaneously. We also take advantage of microfluidics to study membrane reorganization during different stages of C. elegans development. The fellow or technician would be responsible for the further development of this new project, which focuses on mechanisms underlying the remodeling of adherens junctions during embryogenesis. The position is funded (including salary and benefits) by a grant from the American Heart Assocation. UW-Madison offers a stimulating scientific environment that includes a number of other research groups that study C. elegans as a model system.
Applicants should send a CV, a statement of interests, and a list of 3-4 references by email to: email@example.com. The position is available immediately, and review of applications will continue until the position is filled. Applicants with significant experience using C. elegans are encouraged to apply.
