Our laboratory studies the gene regulatory networks (GRNs) that control animal development and disease, with a particular emphasis on microRNAs (miRNAs) and other non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). The long-term goal of our research is to determine the role of ncRNAs during embryonic development and how they integrate the complex network of gene regulation established by protein-coding genes. Work in our lab revolves around on two major topics: (1) the role of ncRNAs in the regulatory networks that control patterning of the mesoderm, and the specification of mesoderm derivatives (e.g. muscle and heart) in the fruitfly ''Drosophila melanogaster'', and (2) the gene regulatory network that governs pancreatic endocrine cell differentiation in zebrafish (''Danio rerio'').

*We invite applications from talented and hard-working '''postdoctoral fellow''' with strong interest in developmental biology, genetics/genomics, molecular biology, cell biology or computational biology. The successful candidate will have a recent Ph.D. or M.D. degree, a track record of high-quality publications, excellent communication skills and a collegial/collaborative approach to science. Prior experience working with either ''Drosophila'' or zebrafish is a plus but not mandatory. Please send a full curriculum vitae, a cover letter describing your research interests, and three letters of recommendation to fbiemar [at] temple [dot] edu.
*Candidates for '''graduate study''' are encouraged to apply directly through the [http://www.temple.edu/biology/graduate/ Biology Department]. Although the Department offers full-time graduate programs leading to master's (Ms) and doctoral (Ph.D.) degrees, we will give priority to candidates who choose to embark on the Ph.D. program.
*We always welcome motivated '''undergraduate students''' with interest in developmental biology, genetics, molecular and cell biology, to apply for a position in the lab. A minimum commitment of 12 hours per week, spanning two semesters is expected. We encourage eligible candidates to apply for the [http://www.temple.edu/vpus/opportunities/ResearchScholars.htm Diamond Research Scholars program] and will help with the application process. Please contact fbiemar [at] temple [dot] edu.
