Postdoctoral position in Genetics and Imaging, Texas A&M University

Posted 4/9/2019

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the Yeh Laboratory at Texas A&M University in College Station.  Our group uses interdisciplinary and quantitative approaches to study the molecular and cellular basis of embryonic development with specific focus on brain development.  In this context, we are interested in understanding how complex multi-enhancer regulatory landscapes interact with gene promoters through the application of super-resolution, live cell imaging.  A particular strength of the lab is the development of custom, state-of-the-art microscopy systems for applications in the life sciences.  

The candidate will be self-motivated, creative, and able to work collaboratively with a group of researchers with expertise in microscopy, physics, and developmental biology.  A PhD in the biological sciences (or related fields) with at least 3 years of laboratory research experience in zebrafish developmental biology is required.  Experience with quantitative imaging, in addition to experience in zebrafish development, will be considered positively, but is not required.  

Applicants should provide:

  • cover letter describing research interests and career goals
  • CV
  • name and contact information from at least two references

Applications should be submitted to Alvin Yeh, ayeh@tamu.edu.
