Hiring for Ctenophore Neural Circuit / Neurogenesis Evolution Project
Published: Monday, November 29, 2021
The Whitney Laboratory is hiring three postdocsand one technician to work on a cutting edge evolutionary neuroscience project studying neurogenesis and neural circuits in ctenophores. Ctenophores are the likely sister group to all other animals, understanding their neurobiology is crucial to describing the origin and evolution of nervous function in animals.
This highly integrative project is being conducted in the laboratories of Joseph Ryan (Evolutionary genomics), James Strother (neuroscience), and Mark Martindale (evolutionary developmental biology). All positions are for 3 years and include benefits. Postdocs are expected to drive research that will lead to first-author manuscripts. All positions are on-site at the Whitney Laboratory in St. Augustine, Florida.
