Default Postdoc: mitochondrial genetics of Drosophila



Postdoc: Drosophila mitochondrial fitness interactions at Brown
University



A postdoc position is available to work on nuclear-mitochondrial
fitness interactions in the laboratory of David Rand and Brown
University. The general theme of this NIH funded project is to study
the epistatic interactions among nuclear and mitochondrial genotypes
that modulate fitness, physiological and biochemical traits in
Drosophila. Mitochondrial genotypes from different strains and
species of the melanogaster subgroup are placed on various nuclear
chromosomal genetic backgrounds to dissect the genetic basis of life
history traits. The project involves molecular and quantitative
genetic assays of Drosophila strains, genetic mapping experiments,
microarray and biochemical assays of specific genotypes, and
inferences from molecular population genetics and evolution.



Applicants must have completed their PhD before starting the position,
and have a strong record of accomplishment from their dissertation
work. Applicants should have some combination of experience with
molecular genetic techniques, Drosophila genetics, quantitative
genetics, biochemical assays, molecular evolution, computational
analysis, and an interest in evolution or genetics. The appointment
is open for up to 3 years, and successful candidates will receive
guidance in the preparation of an NIH NRSA Fellowship to pursue
related projects.



The start date is spring or summer 2009. Applications will be
reviewed until the position is filled. To apply please send 1) a CV,
2) a short statement of research interests and experience, including a
paragraph on how your previous experience makes you well qualified for
this position, and 3) contact information for three references to:
