POSTDOC at Northwestern University. Pheromone regulation of development

Join our effort to understand how the nervous system regulates development and physiology. We are particularly interested
in the mechanisms that regulate the onset of sexual maturation and dynamics of germline stem cells.

The following publications reported our most recent results in this field:

Aprison EZ, Ruvinsky I (2017) Counteracting ascarosides act through distinct neurons to determine the sexual identity of
C. elegans pheromones. Curr. Biol. 27: 2589–2599.

Aprison EZ, Ruvinsky I (2016) Sexually antagonistic male signals manipulate germline and soma of C. elegans hermaphrodites.
Curr. Biol. 26: 2827-2833.

Ideal candidates will have a Ph.D. in genetics, molecular, or developmental biology. Experience with model organisms and
genomics are a plus. Substantial publications resulting from prior research are required. This is an NIH/NSF-funded position.
