If you are interested in joining the lab, there are a few educational programs through which this can be achieved. You are welcome to contact me directly to discuss your research interests.
Postdoc Position available
The laboratory recently received funding to investigate the influence of environmental chemicals on DNA methylation patterns and the associated mechanisms of action. Using zebrafish as a model system, we work on these questions combining traditional approaches (toxicology and developmental biology) with latest genome editing and next generation sequencing approaches. We are seeking an independent, highly motivated and ambitious young scientist for an NIEHS-funded postdoctoral position.
Ideal candidates should have strong interest and expertise in bioinformatics and developmental biology, enthusiasm for scientific research, creativity, a collaborative nature, and good communication skills.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, 1-2 relevant publications and the names and contact information of three people who could provide letters of reference to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Research Assistant/Associate Position available
Did you recently graduate with a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree with honors in biochemistry/biology/computer science? Are you interested in obtaining research experience? We are looking for a talented and enthusiastic young scientist who is interested in working in a developmental toxicology lab for 1-2 years. If interested send your curriculum vitae and and the names and contact information of three people who could provide letters of reference to email@example.com.
