Postdoctoral Position in Proteomics and Human Chromatin Biology
We are looking for a postdoctoral scientist with experience using biochemistry, cell biology, and/or molecular biology approaches to study human transcription and/or chromatin remodeling. A proven record of accomplishment via publications is required. The successful candidate will undertake a project using state of the art proteomics, cell biology, and genomic approaches to study chromatin biology. The dynamics and modifications of protein complexes will be analyzed and the functional and mechanistic implications of the results will be pursued. Our laboratory uses a chromatography based proteomics technology named multidimensional protein identification technology (MudPIT) and we carry out quantitative proteomic analyses in all of our studies. We are well equipped with eleven mass spectrometers, and we routinely upgrade our instrumentation to the latest technologies. We have a powerful computational environment for data analysis. The laboratory is fully equipped for biochemistry and molecular biology studies. We have outstanding collaborators at the Stowers Institute in the biochemistry of transcription and chromatin remodeling, which greatly facilitates projects. In addition, the Stowers Institute (www.stowers.org) has outstanding technology centers in imaging, molecular biology, and tissue culture, for example that we use in a variety of our studies. The successful candidate does not need any protein mass spectrometry experience and will develop these highly marketable skills while in the laboratory. Please see our website for more information regarding our research program. (http://research.stowers.org/proteomics/).
The successful candidate will have recently completed or will shortly complete a Ph.D. and will have a strong publication record. Candidates interested in this position should send a CV with list of publications, a statement of research interest, and have two letters of recommendation sent to email@example.com

Postdoctoral Research Associate
The Halfmann lab at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research has two openings for postdoctoral researchers to explore the cellular and evolutionary implications of protein aggregation and phase partitioning in living organisms.
The projects will build on recent discoveries in yeast (Holmes et al. Cell. 2013;153:153-165) and mammalian systems (Cai et al. Cell. 2014;156:1207-1222) that suggest wide-ranging roles for prions and other self-templated protein assemblies in regulating the flow of information through cellular networks.
Qualified candidates will have a doctorate degree in biology and possess the ability to work both independently and collaboratively in a team-oriented environment. Experience in protein biochemistry and cell biology are desired.
To apply, please submit a cover letter that includes a short summary of interests, a CV, and the contact information of 2-3 professional references to Randal Halfmann at firstname.lastname@example.org. The positions are available immediately until filled.
Postdoctoral Research Associate
The Stowers Institute for Medical Research has two openings for postdoctoral researchers to work on projects using the cave fish system (Astyanax mexicanus) to address questions about the genetic basis of adaptation to new and extreme environments, with a particular focus on metabolic evolution.
Candidates will use RNA-sequencing, whole genome sequencing, transgenics, and metabolomics to uncover the genetic basis and underlying mechanism of the impressive metabolic adaptations cavefish have acquired to survive in nutrient poor environments.
Qualified candidates should have a background in evolutionary genetics and bioinformatics or a background in ecological genetics. Research may be field-based, lab-based, or both. Researchers who integrate genome level data with studies of ecology and evolution are encouraged to apply
One of the positions will involve substantial field work (in the caves in Mexico) to link the ecological settings in the caves with the observed and studied phenotypes.
Another position will direct the bioinformatics of the genomics of non-model organisms, and will analyze and interpret data accordingly. Experience in handling large-scale sequence data is essential.
The ideal candidate has a doctorate degree in bioinformatics, genomics, or a related field; strong command of UNIX and other programming languages; hands-on experience with genomic data; and an interest in pursuing research on emerging model organisms. In addition, the successful candidate will have a strong background in analysis of genetic and genomic data (e.g., whole-genome resequencing, RAD genotyping, QTL mapping) and/or experimental developmental biology (e.g., manipulation of gene expression, transgenesis, genome editing), and an ability and willingness to work both independently and collaboratively in a team-oriented environment. No previous experience working with fish is required.
To apply, please submit a cover letter that includes a short summary of interests, a CV, and the contact information of 2-3 professional references to email@example.com
The positions are available October 1, 2015 (start date is flexible).
