|Title||Postdoctoral Fellow Investigating Inter-Organ Regulation of Drosophila Stem Cell Lineages|
|Appointment Status||Non-Tenure Track|
|Department||IU Bloomington Biology|
A full-time Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Lesley Weaver in the Genome, Cell, and Developmental Program at Indiana University Bloomington to study how different organs communicate to regulate adult Drosophila stem cell lineages.
The Weaver lab works on understanding how different organs communicate the physiological status of an organism using the adult Drosophila ovary as a model. Lab members use a combination of genetic manipulation, imaging analysis, and high-throughput sequencing to study the mechanisms by which organs “talk” to one another to influence physiology. Additional information about the Weaver lab is found at: https://weaverlab.science/.
This position requires a Doctorate Degree (PhD) in Biology or related field at the time of appointment.
Highly motivated candidates interested in addressing fundamental questions in physiology and cell biology are encouraged to apply. Experience in Drosophila genetics is desired, but not required. This position requires a positive attitude and solid work ethic, as well as good communication skills and the ability to work well with others in a laboratory setting.
