A postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Thomas Petes, Department of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at Duke University Medical Center, Durham-NC. The postdoctoral researcher will join other members of the laboratory in conducting a newly funded project to study the genetic and environmental regulation of Copy Number Variation (CNV) and other genome rearrangements in yeast. This project will involve state-of-the-art biological investigation approaches including molecular karyotyping, CGH-microarrays, and massively parallel whole genome re-sequencing. Applicants are expected to have well developed laboratory skills in general molecular biology and microbial/cell culture techniques, and must be able to work independently and as part of a team. Previous research experience in the genome stability, DNA Replication, Recombination, and Repair fields is also highly desirable. The successful candidate should be able to start no later than January 4, 2010.
Interested candidates should apply by sending an email to < email@example.com >. Send a summarized CV, and have three letters of recommendation sent to the email address shown above. The review of applications will begin immediately. The salary will depend on experience, and will be based on the pay scale for NIH postdoctoral researchers.
Women and Minorities are encouraged to apply.
