Postdoctoral Research Position in Computational Modeling of Morphogenesis
The group of Professor Timothy Newman at Arizona State University has an opening for a post-doctoral research associate funded by the Human Frontier Science Program. The successful applicant will join our efforts in computational modeling of developmental systems, in particular large-scale coherent cell movements during early embryogenesis. Applicants must have a PhD in the physical or life sciences. Ideal candidates will demonstrate a strong interest in developmental biology and expertise in large-scale computations. Funding for this position is held collaboratively with the laboratory of Prof. Cornelis Weijer at the University of Dundee Biocentre. There will be opportunities for the successful applicant to spend several weeks each year in the Weijer laboratory.
The position can begin as early as fall 2008. Although the initial appointment will be for one year, an extension to a second or third year may be made by mutual agreement and based on availability of funds.
Applicants must submit their applications online at http://phy.asu.edu/employment.php. Please upload separate PDF files for the cover letter, CV, statement of research experience (including a section on experience with computation), and contact details of three references. Review of applications has begun and will continue every two weeks until the successful applicant has been recruited.
