- Postdoctoral Researcher (chromosome evolution and functional consequences of chromosome fusion)
A postdoc position is available in the Bracewell Lab at Indiana University, Bloomington. We are looking for a colleague to join an NIH NIGMS-funded project looking at chromosome/genome evolution at multiple evolutionary timescales in beetles and flies. We are particularly interested in understanding chromosome fusion/fission and changes in centromere position and the genomic changes that follow. Depending on the applicants background, directions could include large-scale comparative analyses in Drosophila to population genetics/genomics in a species of bark beetle with variation in neo-sex chromosomes. With this position, there is room to develop projects based on personal interest and research strengths under the larger umbrella of the project.
For questions about the position and additional details about the research, please contact Dr. Ryan Bracewell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Review of applications will start 9/30/2023 and will continue until the position is filled. Expected start date is 11/01/2023.

- Postdoctoral Researcher (evolution of mutation rates)
An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the lab of Matthew Hahn in the Department of Biology and Department of Computer Science at Indiana University, Bloomington. The work will address the developmental origin and evolution of de novo mutations, using rhesus macaque as a focal species. The Hahn lab has studied mutation rates across mammals, and this project aims to look more closely at which developmental stages drive differences in mutation rates between species. The postdoctoral candidate will also be encouraged to carry out independent work.
There is a wide variety of research going on in the lab in addition to the current project. Visit the Hahn lab website for a summary of work being done in the lab.
Review of applications will start 10/1/2023 and will continue until the position is filled. Start date is approximately 1/1/24.

- Postdoctoral Researcher (molecular, cellular, and circuit mechanisms of nociception behavior)
Dan Tracey has a postdoctoral position available on his NIH funded R35 investigating "Molecular, Cellular, and Circuit Mechanisms of Nociception Behavior." There are many possible directions of the projects available in the lab (see Twitter thread) or he is open to exploring new ideas. Starting salary will be commensurate with years of postdoctoral experience. [Posted May 18, 2023]
