Postdoc in the Rogers Lab (NICHD)
NICHD The Unit on Developmental Signaling (UDS) seeks candidates for a postdoc position at the NIH campus near Washington, D.C. The postdoc will investigate fundamental questions in developmental biology using cutting-edge molecular optogenetics and quantitative imaging approaches.
The UDS was established July 2021 at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Childhood Health and Human Development (NICHD). We seek to understand how embryonic cells decode signaling to create the diverse cell types needed in healthy adults. We use zebrafish embryos as a vertebrate research model to study in vivo how cells respond to signaling levels, dynamics, and combinations. Toward this goal, we develop molecular optogenetics tools that allow us to manipulate biological processes, including signaling, using light. We apply these tools to the microscopy-friendly zebrafish embryo to investigate fundamental principles guiding embryogenesis. For more information see https://kwrogers-lab.org/.
Candidates with backgrounds in developmental biology, quantitative imaging, and molecular biology are encouraged to apply. Please send your CV, contact info for 2-3 references, and a cover letter describing your expertise and interest in the UDS to email@example.com.

Recruiting PhD students and postdocs for 2023 - the evolution of complexity in marine invertebrates
Goodheart Lab, American Museum of Natural History I will be starting my lab at the American Museum of Natural History this fall, and I will be recruiting at all levels.
The Goodheart lab strives to understand how complex features originate and diversify, with a particular focus on the sequestration of external structures and chemicals. This involves identifying and evaluating the variation of features (morphology, behavior, physiology, etc) among different taxa in the context of well-supported phylogenetic hypotheses.
We use genomic data and the most current bioinformatics tools to generate well-supported phylogenies, and use these hypotheses as frameworks for characterizing the origin(s) and macroevolutionary patterns of particular complex traits. Our work largely focuses on heterobranch gastropods, which do not produce an adult shell and have evolved a number of interesting, and likely associated, features including sequestration of cnidarian nematocysts and potent chemical defenses.
Current work includes phylogeny and systematics of nematocyst sequestering nudibranchs, morphological and ecological evolution, and cell and developmental investigations into the molecular mechanisms of sequestration. If you are interested in these topics or have other ideas, please contact me!

Looking for dynamic, independent researchers that have completed or are within two years of having completed their PhD with strengths in genetics, embryology, cell biology, molecular biology, biomechanics, image processing, bioinformatics and computer modelling. Experience with use of zebrafish as a model system will be advantageous. Candidates that have specific strengths in mathematical modelling, biomechanics and the physics of living systems will also be welcome.
Postdoc Fellowship/Position in Vertebrate Evolutionary-Developmental Genomics
Michigan State University The Fish Evo-Devo-Geno Lab (PI Ingo Braasch; www.fishevodevogeno.org) at Michigan State University (MSU), Dept. of Integrative Biology, is looking for highly motivated postdoc candidates to sponsor and jointly develop applications to the MSU Presidential Postdoctoral Fellowship in Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior (https://eeb.msu.edu/initiatives/postdoctoral-fellowship/).
Research projects would fall within the broader research areas of our group and their intersections. But we are open to discuss any projects involving fish systems.
- Genomic and morphological evolution of fishes
- Vertebrate Genome Duplications and Rules of Polyploid Life
- Conquest of land, ,fish-out-of-water’, and water-to-land transitions
- Evolutionary genomic analyses of zebrafish, gar, and other biomedical fish models
MSU IBIO has a strong research commitment to aquatic systems biology with a highly collaborative community of groups working on vertebrate and fish evolution, genomics, development, population genetics, neuroscience, behavior, ecology, and conservation, allowing for vibrant exchange among fields, methods and model systems.
Applications for the fellowship are due this fall for a fellowship start in 2023, but we should begin discussing opportunities now. Starting a postdoc with us before 2023 may be possible, as early as later this fall.
Reach out to Ingo at the SDB-PASEDB or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Post-doc in Skeletal Development
Mount Saint Vincent University - Bone Development Lab Skeletal development and patterning. We have a number of very cool projects underway and I have funding for a postdoc. Evo-devo, placodes, signaling, bird and fish embryos etc. If you are interested in experiencing what doing research at a primarily undergrad institution is like, then this is for you. We are well funded and well equipped and located 15 minutes from a medium sized institution. We are on the East coast of Canada. We value inclusion and diversity in our group. Teaching opportunities could be negotiated as well.
