A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of Marie-Anne Felix, Institut Jacques Monod, CNRS- University Paris 7, Paris, France, starting in the spring of 2009. Possible projects include quantitative studies of the inter cellular signalling network involved in C. elegans vulva development and evolutionary studies of vulva development in the Caenorhabditis genus. For interested candidates, please send a letter of motivation, a Curriculum Vitae and a list of three referees.

2) Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research associate with Ilya Ruvinsky in the Department of Ecology & Evolution and the Institute for Genomics and Systems Biology at the University of Chicago.
The project will focus on understanding the mechanisms responsible for evolutionary and physiological robustness of transcriptional networks. Ilya’s group uses C. elegans as a primary model system. The project will provide ample opportunities for collaboration with other groups both within and outside the University of Chicago.
Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Genetics, Molecular or Evolutionary Biology or related field. The ideal candidate will be creative, energetic and have excellent communication skills. All candidates are expected to have a background or interest in molecular evolutionary genetics. In addition, the candidates should have expertise in molecular biology, particularly using genetics in model organisms, and computational skills.
