We are seeking an Administrative Assistant to support the lab of Dr. David Kingsley at Stanford University. Dr. Kingsley and his research group are interested in the molecular mechanisms that control evolutionary change in vertebrates. The team studies several fascinating questions, such as: what genes produce interesting differences in wild animals, what kinds of mutations occur in these genes, how predictable are evolutionary mechanisms, and how has evolution produced the distinctive physical and mental traits that make us human? Dr. Kingsley's interactive group studies these questions in diverse systems, including mice, stickleback fish, polar bears, and people.
