Moody and Andre Tavares at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences is seeking a beginning Postdoctoral Scientist to study the genetic underpinnings of craniofacial development using Xenopus and mouse. Studies will include evaluation of craniofacial phenotypes and transcriptional regulation using embryo manipulations, qPCR, in-situ hybridization, RNA-seq, cell culture, and histology. Experience in developmental biology, embryological manipulations, molecular biology techniques and cell culture are preferred. Qualified candidates will hold a Ph.D. in Developmental Biology or related discipline. Degree must be conferred by the start date of the position. Term is for 2 years, and salary will be equivalent to NIH postdoctoral trainee stipends based on years of experience.
