Postdoctoral Position Singson Lab Rutgers

Postdoc Position in C. elegans Reproductive Biology

A postdoctoral position is available in the Singson Lab at Rutgers University to study sperm-egg interactions, activation, and the oocyte-to-embryo transition. This project is funded by a 5-year grant from the National Institutes of Health. Specific areas of interest include genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, and biochemistry. Applicants should have a Ph.D. with a strong background in genetics and/or cell biology, as well as excellent written and oral communication skills. Experience working with C. elegans will be considered favorably.

The lab is located in the Waksman Institute at Rutgers University. In 2003, Rutgers was the top-rated institution in The Scientist’s “Best Places for Postdocs” survey. The biomedical research community in the area includes more than 150 active labs (including 9 other C. elegans labs) housed at Rutgers and the adjacent medical school. This very interactive scientific community offers a superb environment for training. We are 45 minutes from New York City by train and the Rutgers campus is situated in pleasant suburban surroundings.
Rutgers University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and strongly encourages applications from women and minority candidates.
