We currently have the following positions available:
Post-doctoral positions are available for projects on the
epigenetics of embryonic development, mathematical modeling of
patterning during regeneration, and biophysical controls of cancer.
We are specifically interested in people with a computational or mathematical
physics background to develop novel analysis pipelines for bioelectric data
in pattern regulation. We also welcome applications from people who are in the finishing
stages of their Ph.D. but may not be ready to move yet (plans can
also be made for over a year in the future as well, since it is
often the case that the most competitive candidates make
arrangements well in advance). We are looking for talented,
versatile, highly motivated biologists with experience in molecular
techniques and a background in developmental biology,
electrophysiology, neurobiology, bioengineering, and related
disciplines. People with a computer science/engineering background
are also encouraged to apply. Our lab utilizes the frog, chick,
planarian, and zebrafish systems to understand the roles of
endogenous ion currents in patterning during embryonic morphogenesis
and regeneration. We also have projects on memory and learning,
neuroplasticity, and the dynamics of memory storage during brain
work uses a convergence of molecular embryology,
cell biology, biophysics, physiology, and mathematical modeling, and
this is a great opportunity for someone to develop truly frontier
science. Many exciting projects are available. If you are
me. Candidates will be asked to send a CV, letters of reference, and
the outline of a research project proposal.
We are currently full and not accepting Ph.D. students, but spots may become available in 2023.
If you're interested, please apply through the
Tufts Biology department's program and indicate your
interest in our lab on your application.
For Tufts students, we are interested in
- Computer Science undergrads for part-time software work
- Computer Science graduate students for thesis projects in computer
modeling of biological signal processing
- Biology undergrads for part-time work throughout the year.
