We are recruiting an enthusiastic Lab Manager/Jr. Specialist to help coordinate the lab's research and technical activities.
Looking for a candidate to start ASAP, position is open until filled.
The Lab Manager/Jr. Specialist position will include:
A minimum of a BSc in Molecular Biology, Genetics, Evolution, or equivalent lab experience in a related field is required. Experience with molecular biology techniques is strongly preferred.
We are seeking motivated postdoctoral researchers to lead key projects in the lab while continuing their scientific training. Wet lab, field, and computational opportinties are all available.
Start date is flexible, can be as soon as Sept 15th 2021.
We have a variety of exciting projects for postdoctoral associates, including:
If a potential postdoc has a specific vision for a different project in the general area of adaptation/speciation, I would also be happy to discuss possibilities. We work with sticklebacks and Drosophila, but other systems would be very welcome.
A PhD in Biology, Genetics, Evolution, or a related field is required. Experience with molecular biology and genomics, especially CRISPR and/or single cell techniques, is strongly preferred. We can fully train candidates in all necessary computational, bioinformatic, and statistical skills.
We are always seeking to recruit enthusiastic PhD students to learn and study along with us in the lab. All graduate positions in the lab are fully funded. Dr. Samuk will work with you to develop an individual research project spanning ~5 years, alongside your coursework.
Currently recruiting for Sept 2022 start dates (application deadline in late 2021). See here more details.
The core of a graduate degree is developing and carrying a thesis research project. In the Samuk lab, projects generally evolve around the following themes:
You can choose to work on sticklebacks, Drosophila, or another related system, in the lab and/or the field. Projects focusing on other topics related to evolution/behavior/genetics are also welcome.
A BSc is required, and a degree in Biology, Evolution/Ecology, Genetics, Psychology, Computer Science, Statistics, or a related field is strongly preferred. As of 2021, the GRE is no longer a requirement for application to the graduate program at UC Riverside.
