A postdoctoral position at the University of Pittsburgh to study the expression regulation of polarity genes in zebrafish


We are looking for a self-motivated postdoc to study the expression regulation of polarity genes by using recombinant DNA technologies, RNA and DNA FISH, immunohistochemistry, confocal microscopy, and transgenic zebrafish etc. Candidates should have a PhD in developmental biology, genetics, molecular biology, or cell biology. Applicants shall send a cover letter and a CV to Dr. Xiangyun Wei (Xiangyun Wei, Ph.D., Associate Professor, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pennsylvania, United States)


It is highly recommended that the applicants discuss his or her research interests on Wei labs publications by email. Five representative papers are listed as follows:
