Department: DEPARTMENT OF BIOLOGY
Position: POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW
Rank Code: RSP
A full-time NSF-funded postdoctoral position is available in Armin Moczek’s lab, Department of Biology, Indiana University, Bloomington. Our lab conducts research in evolutionary developmental (evo-devo) and ecological developmental (eco-devo) biology, focusing on the genetic, developmental and ecological mechanisms that mediate the origins and diversification of novel complex traits in insects such as beetle horns, firefly lanters, or treehopper helmets. The position advertised will focus on identifying the genes and pathways underlying the origin and diversification of horns in the extraordinarily diverse beetle genus Onthophagus. Specifically, the work will use genomic and candidate-gene approaches to identify and functionally characterize the developmental-genetic mechanisms that regulate horn morphology (size, shape, position), context-dependent expression of horns (sex- and nutrition-specificity), and how evolutionary changes in these mechanisms have mediated diversification within and among species. The postdoctoral candidate will also have opportunities to develop independent lines of research in these and related areas. We seek a collegial, self-motivated, independent, and intellectually curious individual with a recent PhD in Evolutionary Biology, Developmental Biology, or related fields. Applicants must have strong bench skills, and familiarity with techniques such as immunohistochemistry, cloning, qPCR, RNAinterference, and the bioinformatic analyses of next-gen sequencing data is strongly desirable (though training in these techniques will also be provided as necessary). In addition, candidates must have demonstrated written and oral communication skills. Experience working with insects is helpful but not required. The position is initially available for 24 months, with possible extension for a third year. Salary will be commensurate with experience, and full benefits are included. Indiana University has a large and interactive group at the interface of evolutionary and developmental biology. Bloomington is situated in scenic, hilly southern Indiana, near several parks and wilderness areas. The cultural environment provided by the University is exceptionally rich in art, music, and theater.
