Research Associate University of British Columbia The Department of Cellular & Physiological Sciences at the University of British Columbia invites applications for a Research Associate position. Candidate must have a Ph.D. in a genetics-related program and at least five years of postdoctoral research experience. The successful candidate will study cis-regulatory mechanisms of BMP-dependent gene expression in Drosophila and must have research experience (supported by a strong publication record) in this area. Preference will be given to candidates with robust evidence for their ability to develop their own research project and contribute to the molecular genetics expertise of the laboratory. Familiarity with bioinformatics, cis-regulatory mechanisms of gene regulation and Drosophila genetics are essential. Applications, including CV and names and contact information of at least three referees should be submitted by email to Dr. Doug Allan ([email protected]). Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. UBC hires on the basis of merit and is strongly committed to equity and diversity within its community. We especially welcome applications from visible minority group members, women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, and others with the skills and knowledge to productively engage with diverse communities. We encourage all qualified persons to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority. Only candidates that meet all preferred criteria will be contacted for an interview.
