The McNeill Lab in the Department of Developmental Biology at Washington University School of Medicine invites applications for a post doc position. The Department of Developmental Biology is a dynamic research community, with interests spanning multiple model organisms and disease paradigms, and the research environment and facilities at Washington University and the School of Medicine is world-class. The McNeill lab has a broad interest in how tissue growth and tissue patterning are regulated in development. Using biochemical and genetic approaches, they focus on how Fat cadherins and the Hippo pathway regulate development. These findings are then explored in vivo, using mice, flies and hydra.
We are seeking an outstanding applicant to join at the level of Postdoc Research Associate/or Scholar. The applicant is expected to have a PhD or MD/PhD in a relevant area, including, but not limited to cell biology, genetics and biochemistry. Knowledge of mouse kidney development, live imaging, cell signaling assays or Drosophila genetics is a plus. Potential research projects include understanding how the Hippo pathway regulates branching morphogenesis in the mouse kidney, and how Fat cadherins control planar polarity and the Hippo pathway in flies and mice.
Interested applicants should email a single PDF file consisting of a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a personal statement (including research interests and career goals) and should arrange for submission of three letters of reference to: firstname.lastname@example.org
