    We are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow for a project linking genetic differentiation with social behavior in a unique animal model. The position will span Emory University (PI Donna Maney) and Georgia Institute of Technology (PI Soojin Yi) and will integrate the fields of comparative genomics and behavioral neuroendocrinology. We are investigating how a prevalent chromosomal polymorphism in the white-throated sparrow leads to two distinctive and complex behavioral phenotypes. We use genomic and epigenomic tools as well as behavioral and physiological approaches. These techniques include ATAC-seq, bisulfite sequencing, reporter assays, and gene knockdown.

     

     

    Ph.D. required. Applicants with strong quantitative (e.g. bioinformatics) skills are especially encouraged to apply.

    Interested candidates should send a CV, including contact information for three references, to dmaney@emory.edu.
