Postdoctoral Fellow(s) Biological Physics

Postdoctoral Fellow(s) Biological Physics
Physics Department, Duke University
Duke University is seeking a postdoctoral fellow(s) to join an interdisciplinary
collaboration with Professors Glenn Edwards (physics) and Dan Kiehart (biology). The
research involves molecular, cellular, and tissue dynamics during early morphogenesis
based on in vivo imaging of Drosophila embryos, advanced segmentation of time series
of confocal images, and modeling based on physics concepts. The successful candidate
should hold a Ph.D. in physics or related fields with a strong background in experimental,
numerical, and analytical methods. Experience with femtosecond lasers would be
beneficial. The position is available starting in the fall of 2014.
Applicants should send a letter of interest and their curriculum vitae to
GEdwards@phy.duke.edu. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of
recommendation to be sent to this e-mail address.
Duke University is an equal opportunity employer and encourages applications from
underrepresented groups.
