POSTDOCTORAL POSITION in evolutionary biology

A POSTDOCTORAL POSITION in evolutionary biology is available in the laboratory of Todd Streelman at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The candidate for this position will be expected to carry out independent research contributing to the major focus of the laboratory: the genetic basis of functional and phenotypic diversity in cichlid fishes from Lake Malawi, East Africa. In the past few years, the cichlid community has built an array of genomic resources ( to complement decades of natural history information. Using these tools in the context of wild cichlid populations, the Streelman lab aims to understand the evolutionary genesis of complex organismal designs. We study cichlids in the field, in the laboratory, and in the tropical aquarium facilities at the GIT.
Research is presently focused on the evolution of jaws, teeth and color pattern because these traits have been important to cichlid diversification (for representative publications, see
Candidates working in evolutionary ecology, biomechanics, quantitative genetics or evolutionary development, are especially encouraged to apply. The Georgia Institute of Technology offers exciting avenues for collaboration with biomedical engineers, biomechanicians, developmental biologists and systems ecologists. The start date for this position is flexible, and funding is available for at least two years. The salary is competitive and commensurate with experience. Interested individuals should send a CV, a brief description of research and professional goals, and the names and addresses of 3 references to Todd Streelman, by e-mail ( or regular mail (School of Biology, 310 Ferst Drive, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA 30332-0230).
