Postdoc position, Umass Medical School, Predator-Prey interactions

A postdoctoral position is available in the Alkema lab at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester MA, USA

We study the neuro-ethology of the nematode escape response. We are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to study predator-prey interactions between nematodes and predacious fungi.
