I looked to make sure it was ok to post this here and didn't see anything against it, but I'm actually trying to find a research assistant position in a fly lab. I'm graduating at the end of this semester from a masters program from an evo-devo lab, and so far I can count the number of non-post-doc positions on one hand. On top of that, I know people are hesitant to look at out of state applicants when there are in state applicants available. My background though is more on the development side than the evolution side. I've studied Hox genes and oganogenesis here, and have imaged/dissected embryos, larvae, pupa, and adult cuticle. I'm well versed in immunohistochemistry, in situ, DNA/general pcr work, fly husbandry, genetic crosses, and more. I just can't find many positions out there. So I'm hoping people can maybe point me towards some open or soon to become available positions. I'm certainly willing to relocate and have the means to do so without hesitation.
