Yang Laboratory for Quantitative Biology, Department of Biophysics, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
Description: The Yang Lab studies biological oscillations and self-organization processes in early zebrafish embryos. The local interactions in the form of mechanical and biochemical signals allow individual molecules and cells to generate collective spatiotemporal patterns. To pin down the physical mechanisms behind these processes, we integrate mathematical modeling, live-cell and super-resolution imaging, and microfluidics to study both cell-free extracts and live embryos, and connect the understandings across the molecular, cellular, and embryonic levels.
The candidate should have a quantitative background and a strong interest in interdisciplinary research. Experience with zebrafish, optical imaging, and molecular biology is preferred. The position is immediately available and the starting date is flexible.
How to apply: Interested candidates should send a letter describing your interest in the position, CV, and names of three references to Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Dr. Qiong Yang.
