Postdoctoral Position in Evolution of Fruiting Body Development

Postdoctoral position anticipated in the laboratory of Dr. Frances Trail at Michigan State University, Department of Plant Biology. The project is in collaboration with Dr. Jeffrey Townsend, Yale University. The project explores the evolution of phenotypes across related species by examining the evolved changes in gene expression in diverse species. Previously, using comparative transcriptomics, we have identified genes involved in differences in perithecium morphology in Neurospora versus Fusarium species. The majority of genes were involved in generating structures present in only one of the genera, such as the beak in Neurospora and the stroma in Fusarium. The expanded project will explore shifts in regulatory networks that drive evolution of diverse additional morphologies across six genera. Candidates must have a Ph.D. with experience in fungal molecular biology and/or fungal genomics. In addition, good communication skills are essential to the project. Funding is available for three years with adequate progress. Starting date is negotiable. Please submit a current C.V., letter of introduction and contact information for three references to Prof. Frances Trail, trail@msu.edu.
