Postdoctoral Position in Developmental Epigenetics at Northwestern University, Blythe Lab
Northwestern Iniversity
The Blythe Lab would like to hire a postdoc to work on the role of pioneer factors in early embryogenesis. We combine approaches in time-resolved genomics and quantitative imaging with the nice genetic approaches in Drosophila to ask how chromatin states change as a function of embryonic patterning. We’ve recently published a study where we asked what fraction of changes in chromatin accessibility could be traced to patterning systems. *link* (https://elifesciences.org/articles/53916) The answer is, remarkably, a lot, and that some of our favorite transcription factors lead a shadowy lifestyle as modulators of chromatin states. This has big implications for the regulatory logic that drives development, which we are well poised to discover. The only prerequisites for the job are a PhD in a relevant scientific field, and a strong interest in understanding how complex systems work. A great opportunity to learn genomic approaches and computational analysis! If you are interested, please contact me (e-mail, this app) or come to my poster presentation for more info.

We will use ATAC-seq, RNA-seq, in vivo reporter assays, and CRISPR/cas9-mediated embryological manipulations to identify and assess how non-coding variation underlies facial development and evolution using cichlid fishes and zebrafish. Support is for two years with potential for renewal. We are a dynamic, collaborative, and supportive group with access to Imaging and Bioinformatic cores for excellent training to assist planned research. Preference will be given to candidates with demonstrated experience with ATAC-seq, RNA-seq, and/or zebrafish embryology.

Part time online teacher of Developmental Bio in PhD program
Eastern Virginia Medical School
I teach an online course in Developmental Biology to PhD students in an online distance learning program in Reproductive Clinical Sciences. The students are all clinical embryologists who work full time in vitro fertilization clinics. I am looking for an experienced Developmental biologist to share the teaching with me next spring. This is a research oriented course using journal articles to teach modern approaches to DB research. Students are at a distance so it is entirely online. Students write discussion boards and essay exams and present papers live. I am adding a live discussion format next year. This is a good opportunity to develop online teaching skills to a mature and highly motivated group of students.

graduate student and postdoc openings
University of Florida
The Kopinke lab at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida is looking for graduate students and postdocs. We are studying how primary cilia, small microtubule-based cellular antennae, sense and respond to different environmental cues, such as Hedgehog signaling, to coordinate intercellular communication. More specifically, we are testing how cilia are involved in building, maintaining and repairing complex tissues such as skeletal muscle, white adipose tissue and the heart. If you are passionate about science, independent, motivated and ready to tackle interesting questions about primary cilia, Hedgehog signaling and adult regeneration, please contact me @ dkopinke@ufl.edu. You can also check out my student’s poster #569 (C2) on Wednesday @ noon. Even more info @ www.kopinkelab.com.

Graduate student and post doc in tissue regeneration
Arizona State University
The Harris lab at Arizona State University is seeking bright, motivated researchers with an interest in genetics, who seek to better understand tissue regeneration. We use the amazingly powerful genetic toolkit available in Drosophila to study why tissues lose the ability to regenerate with maturity, with the goal of identifying methods to improve regenerative capacity. We are also interested in how healthy tissues respond to different types of injury, including apoptotic and necrotic cell death. To study these questions we employ advanced imaging techniques, transgenesis, molecular biology and next gen sequencing approaches. For more info see our current grad student’s presentations: Jake Klemm’s poster #215 (C5) and John Quinn’s talk on Saturday, as well as our website www.HarrisLabASU.com

We are looking to fill positions and welcome applications from potential graduate students who would be applying this year to begin in the Fall 2021, and new post docs, who would start this year. Send enquiries to myself Robin.Harris@ASU.edu and be sure to enjoy the SDB conference!
