The Misra lab at University of Texas Dallas is looking for highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellows to conduct research funded by the National Institutes of Health to investigate the molecular mechanisms of regulation of growth and morphogenesis during development. The projects combine genetics, cell biology, and biochemical analysis of developmental processes that are critical for appropriate organ development using Drosophila as a model organism.
UTDallas has the state-of-the-art core facilities for functional genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics and offers an international working environment in Richardson, Texas, on the outskirts of the city of Dallas.
Candidates should be highly motivated and self-organized. They must hold a PhD or anticipate completion of a PhD prior to starting the postdoc and should ideally have experience in one or more of the following disciplines: genetics, developmental biology or cell biology. Experience with Drosophila, confocal microscopy and image processing is a major plus, but candidates having experience in C. elegans genetics, tissue culture and molecular biology and willing to learn Drosophila genetics will also be considered.
To apply, candidates should please send their CV, cover letter and the contact information of three references to Dr. Jyoti Misra at jyoti...@UTDallas.edu
