Research Opportunities in the Blythe Lab

As a growing biological research laboratory, we are currently looking to hire additional scientists. Below is a list of open positions. If you are interested in research that uses quantitative imaging, genomics, genetics, and embryology -- or if you are interested in chromatin, transcription, or the embryonic development of Drosophila-- we encourage you to apply.

Winter 2022 - Ongoing


The Blythe Lab has an opening for a postdoctoral researcher interested in applying quantitative imaging and time-resolved genomic approaches to the understanding of pioneer factor function in early development. Positions are NIH funded and are available immediately. Qualified applicants are encouraged to send a cover letter and CV to shelby.blythe [at]

2021-22 Academic year


The Blythe Lab will be accepting lab rotation students during all three quarters of the '21-'22 academic year to ultimately fill one available position. So long as conditions allow, rotations will be in-person, hands-on, and mentored either by Dr. Blythe or a current lab member. Please contact Shelby Blythe for additional information, and feel free to stop by the lab and/or e-mail lab members to find out more about what's going on. Projects related to all aspects of the lab's interests are available, and generally include both wet and dry lab components. Familiarity with either R or Matlab is a plus. However, it is unlikely that 'entirely computational' projects are ever available.

2021-22 Academic year


The Blythe Lab is accepting applications for undergraduate volunteer research positions. Undergraduate volunteers in the Blythe Lab are given independent research projects related to the projects of current lab members, who will serve as mentors for the projects. As such, these represent a significant time commitment. Interested and qualified applicants should forward a cover letter and CV to shelby.blythe [at]
