Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunity – Vector Mosquito Developmental Genetics

We seek a highly motivated research scholar with excellent technical and communication skills to work in the laboratory of Molly Duman Scheel at the Indiana University School of Medicine on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. Our laboratory pursues functional genetic characterization of development in multiple species of human disease vector mosquitoes. Current research projects include i) functional genetic analysis of sensory system development (olfactory and visual system), ii) enhancer discovery and analysis of developmental gene regulatory networks, iii) the developmental genetics of sexual dimorphism, and iv) siRNA larvicide discovery. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to interact with many talented vector biologists in the Notre Dame Eck Institute for Global Health. Candidates should have expertise in one or more of the following areas: vector mosquito biology, developmental biology, evolutionary development, arthropod genomics, developmental neurobiology, arthropod genetics, pesticides, RNAi, and entomology. Field experience is useful, though not required. The laboratory is presently funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the NIH/NIAID, and funding for at least two years is available immediately. More information about our laboratory and facilities is available at: http://medicine.iu.edu/southbend/research/researchers/molly-duman-scheel-ph-d/. Applicants should send a cover letter, C.V., and the names/contact information for three references to mscheel@nd.edu.
