The Liu Lab in the Department of Pathology and Anatomical Sciences, SUNY University at Buffalo invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher position in the areas of computational anatomy and evolutionary biology. The postdoctoral fellow will conduct computational and quantitative research on the evolution and function of the vertebrate auditory system. The successful candidate will be highly motivated, and with experience or interest in quantitative methods such as CT/MR based segmentation and 3D modeling, geometric morphometrics, and finite element analysis. Prior experience with R or other programming languages is preferred. Position responsibilities include data processing and analysis, as well as manuscript preparation and publication. Main research project will be centered on performing 3-D reconstruction of auditory structures from CT and MRI scan, modeling shape variations and/or biomechanical features using commercial and open access software, and recording auditory evoked potential.
Applicants must have a PhD degree in Evolutionary Biology, Vertebrate Paleontology, Comparative Anatomy, Fish Biology, or a related field.
The preferred applicant will be familiar with 3D segmentation software, geometric morphometric methods, finite element analysis, and/or auditory evoked potential recording.
