Postdoctoral research fellow: Hudson Lab, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Kennesaw State University, Atlanta, GA
The Hudson lab at Kennesaw State University (http://facultyweb.kennesaw.edu/mhudso28/) has a position open for a postdoctoral research associate with expertise in neurophysiology or developmental neurobiology.
We use a combination of RNA-seq and genetics to understand early cell fate specification in nervous system development.
In parallel with this, we are developing optogenetic approaches to explore cell-to-cell communication in neural circuits.
RNA-seq data already in the lab, coupled with a full array of C. elegans handling equipment (microinjection rig, multiple compound scopes with automated z-stages, confocal microscope, FACS, etc.) are available for use.
These can provide a platform for a motivated postdoc to develop their own research direction. Opportunities are also available to develop a postdoc’s teaching portfolio.
Funding is available for one year initially, with opportunities for renewal depending on adequate research progress and availability of additional funding.
Recent PhD or equivalent with a track record in neuroscience, developmental biology, cell biology, or bioinformatics.
Expertise in C. elegans preferred (germline microinjection, genetics, plasmid construction, etc.)
Able to work independently or as part of a team.
