A postdoctoral position at Michigan State University

Scholarship: Fully-funded
Degree:  PhD
Nationality: International Students
Location: USA
Application deadlines:  Open

Scholarship Description:

The laboratory of Wen Huang (https://qgg-lab.github.io) is broadly interested in the genetics of complex quantitative traits, using Drosophila, livestock animals, and human data as models. Laboratory approaches include classical genetics, molecular biology, genomics, statistics, and bioinformatics therefore trainees will receive training in these areas.

Available Subjects:

  • Molecular biology or molecular genetics 

Eligibility criteria:

This advertisement invites applications from candidates with background in molecular biology/genetics. Candidates with a recent Ph.D. and experience in molecular biology or molecular genetics are strongly encouraged to apply; prior Drosophila experience is not required but a plus. Projects that can be immediately started include mapping developmental and environmental regulatory variation for translational control in early Drosophila embryos; development of massively parallel reporter assays to assess effects of regulatory variation for translation. Postdocs are also encouraged to develop projects that fit their own interest and align with directions of the lab.

Application Procedure:

Candidates are encouraged to inquire and/or apply by sending current CV and a brief introduction explaining background, experience and career plan to the PI (Wen Huang: [email protected]). References will be checked when there is mutual interest to move forward. Salaries and benefits will be commensurate with experience and follow NIH guidelines.
