We are looking for highly motivated individuals who share our passion for science and would like to work in a friendly and collaborative environment.
A fully funded Postdoc position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Peng Huang in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Calgary, Canada. We use zebrafish as a model system to understand how tissue patterning is achieved and how tissue integrity is maintained. We study the spinal cord patterning to understand how different cell signaling pathways (Hedgehog and Notch signaling) interact during cell fate specification. We also study how tissue-resident fibroblasts (e.g., tendon fibroblasts and perivascular fibroblasts) contribute to tissue homeostasis, degeneration and regeneration. For more information about the lab and our recent publications, please visit: https://people.ucalgary.ca/~huangp/index.html
Candidates should have a PhD in Developmental Genetics or a related discipline, excellent molecular biology skills, and a strong interest in a future career in developmental biology. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are critical. They should have an excellent track record of peer-reviewed publications (first author publication is required). They should be able to work independently to drive their project but also have a collaborative approach, working productively in a team and contributing to a good social environment in the laboratory.
To apply, please email Dr. Peng Huang (firstname.lastname@example.org) a single PDF file containing: 1) a cover letter summarizing previous research experiences and future goals; 2) CV with names of 2-3 references. Please indicate “Postdoc Position” in the subject line.
Calgary, Canada’s fastest growing major city, is vibrant and multicultural with a population of more than 1.2 million. Situated near the Rocky Mountains, Banff National Park and Lake Louise, Calgary offers great quality of life and outstanding recreational activities.
