The Alenius lab has a fully funded postdoc position opening at at Umeå university, Sweden. Our group combines Drosophila and mouse genetics to investigate the fundamental mechanisms that control neuronal activity. We are shifting gears for this project and the focus is to identify hormones that regulate taste and olfaction in Drosophila.
We seek an enthusiastic, highly motivated candidate with a strong background in either Drosophila molecular biology or cell signalling. The position involves exploring candidate hormones from a screen using state of the art Drosophila genomic tools, behaviour analyses and biochemistry. Thus, additional skills in Drosophila neuroscience, imaging, and behavior analysis are considered a plus.
Candidates are encouraged to send applications (cover letter, CV, and contact information of 3 references) to the link below. Application deadline is June 23, 2020. Reviewing of applications will start immediately until the position is filled. Openings are available immediately. If you have questions do not hesitate to write: firstname.lastname@example.org
