Postdoc position in Coral Genome evolution: A postdoctoral position in coral cell biology and genomics is available at the Palumbi Lab at Stanford’s Hopkins Marine Station. Funded by the Chan-Zuckerberg BioHub (Beyond Model Systems: https://www.czbiohub.org/intercampus-research-programs/ <https://www.czbiohub.org/intercampus-research-programs/>), the work will focus on measuring the rate and pattern of mutations in long lived, reef building corals using genomic tools and cell visualizations. The goal is to understand how these simple animals protect their genome integrity over 100s of years of life, the nature and extent of stem cells in somatic and germ line tissues, and the geography of cell division within colonies. Experience with some combination of deep genome sequencing, confocal microscopy, fluorescent microscopy, single cell genomics, and statistical analysis of large data sets is desirable. Collaboration with other BioHub investigators on this project, and an enthusiasm for the genomic and cellular evolution of non-model marine invertebrates will also be key. The position is for one year with possible renewal for additional years, and is open as of Sept 1, 2019. Please send cv, a short letter of research experience, and names of references to spalumbi at stanford.edu <mailto:spalumbi at stanford.edu>.
