Postdoctoral & Research Assistant: University of Oregon
|Organization:||Eisen and Miller Labs
University of Oregon
|Type of Position:||Postdoctoral Fellow and Research Assistant|
Description & Details:
Interested in development, cell fate, neural circuits, and wiring? We received an R21 grant to examine motoneurons in zebrafish and we are seeking a postdoctoral fellow and a research assistant to work on the project. The work will focus on using single cell RNA-seq to investigate motoneuron populations in early developing zebrafish. Over the course of the project the researcher will be expected to generate new sequencing data, examine the transcriptomes (bioinformatics), generate transgenics and mutants (CRISPR), examine the phenotypes (imaging), and disseminate the work (go to conferences and write papers).
Successful candidates will have a degree of an appropriate level for the position of application (Ph.D. = PD and B.S. = RA). A published record of accomplishment appropriate to level, and good written and oral communication skills.
