The Yohe Lab is seeking a postdoctoral researcher position to investigate the developmental origins of bat diversity. The project investigates craniofacial anatomy and the development of sensory systems in relation to dietary diversification. The candidate will leverage data from more than 100 soft-tissue µCT-scans of bat embryos at varying stages and of varying species to identify key structures that are important in dietary niche divergence. The postdoc will be expected to be a part of the vibrant and growing North Carolina Research Campus in Kannapolis, NC.
Minimum Experience / Education:
Candidate must have a PhD by June 30, 2023, in ecology and evolutionary biology, computational biology, or genomics, or a related field to one of the three
Preferred Education Skills and Experience:
Candidate must be familiar with morphometric analyses, R coding environment, HPLC, and phylogenetic comparative methods. Knowledge of anatomical sciences, image microscopy, mammalian biology (particularly in bats), and embryology is desirable. Demonstration of previous peer-review publications is also a strong factor.
