Looking for a Postdoc Fall 2015

As part of our NSF grant on Avian Cranial Kinesis, we’ll be looking to fill a 3yr Postdoc at University of Missouri, Summer/Fall 2015.

The official ad won’t come out for a while, but any interested parties should contact me (Casey Holliday). I’ll be at SICB and EB/AAA this Spring to chat.

In general, we’re looking for someone with skills and interests to help develop 3D computational modeling, musculoskeletal biomechanics, morphometrics and 3D viz associated with testing patterns of skull form & function across phylogenies. Experience and vision with Strand7, Maya, Matlab, R, Avizo, and/or similar software packages is highly favorable. Some background in reptile and avian cranial anatomy is very helpful but not required.

Feel free to distribute widely.

About Casey

I am an Associate Professor of Anatomy at University of Missouri-Columbia. I teach Anatomy for the Medical School. I conduct research on the evolutionary morphology of vertebrates, particularly the structure, function, and evolution of the feeding apparatus. Much of this involves studying the biology of bone, cartilage and muscle. of dinosaurs and fossil crocs. I have a great job.
