We're looking for two researchers/assistants/students on a fellowship* basis on both the wet and dry sides of the lab.
On the wetlab end of the lab, we're looking for someone to help us to extend current ATAC-Seq and RNA-Seq protocols (single-cell and bulk) to work on a range of unusual marine organisms whose cells don't hold up well in standard buffer conditions.
In the dry (computational) lab, we have two projects:
1) Characterising the onset of zygotic transcription in early sea urchin embryos using allele-specific RNA-Seq
2) Quantifying natural selection in coding and non-coding DNA associated with adaptation to deep water habitats in North American sea urchin species.
Both projects require familiarity with command-line tools and some knowledge of R or Python (ideally both).
For both the wet and dry, the projects can stand by themselves or be developed into Masters and (potentially) PhD projects.
For more information, please contact us.
*Yes, this means we pay you.
