A position for 1.5 years is open in the labs of Joanne Yew and Antónia Monteiro to study the type and spatial distribution of cuticular lipids on the wings of seasonal polyphenic Bicyclus anynana butterflies. Both sexes perform courtship in this species. Wet season males court females more avidly then dry season males, and dry season females court males more avidly that wet season females. Currently we know that B. anynana male butterflies use volatile pheromones produced in their wings to attract the opposite sex but nothing is know about the presence of pheromones in females nor about the presence of cuticular lipids in the wings of both sexes, and whether lipid composition varies with seasonal form.
The postdoctoral candidate would be involved in using mass spectrometry-based methods to perform 2-D chemical imaging and profiling of the wings of male and female butterflies from the two seasonal forms to identify the chemical composition and spatial distribution of cuticular lipids in these butterflies.
We are looking for postdoctoral candidates with experience in chemical ecology who are able to start immediately. Experience with analytical chemistry methods such as chromatographic purification, MALDI MS, and gas chromatography MS would be helpful. Salary will be commensurate with experience. For further information contact Joanne Yew at email@example.com or Antónia Monteiro at firstname.lastname@example.org

A postdoctoral position in the field of cell and developmental biology is available in Fumio Motegi's group in Temasek Lifesciences Laboratory. The group is interested in understanding the mechanisms underlying cell polarization and asymmetric cell divisions using the C. elegans zygote as a model system. Current work focuses on understanding the mechanics of 1) initiation of cell polarization and 2) spatial patterning of cellular asymmetry, which will delve into the basic principles of how a developing embryo commits to somatic or germline cell fates. The fellow will also have an opportunity to work with advanced imaging-and-analysis technologies at the Mechanobiology Institute of National University of Singapore. More information can be found at: http://www.tll.org.sg/group-leaders/motegi-fumio/
Candidates for the position must have completed their Ph.D. in biology or related field and have at least one first-author paper in English in an international peer-reviewed journal before starting the position.
