Our group is interested in the early development, differentiation, and translational potential of neural crest cells. We are looking for an accomplished postdoctoral scholar to participate in full-time research dedicated to advance our understanding of the gene regulatory network governing human neural crest development, and to launch translational efforts for spinal cord injury based in neural crest biology. Significant and creative contributions to research in the field of neural crest are expected. Top qualifications required include deep developmental biology knowledge, state of the art molecular biology design and practical skills (next generation sequencing, RT-Q-PCR, CRISPR/Cas9, chromatin immunoprecipitation, epigenetic analyses, etc.), current gene regulatory network bioinformatics, avian embryology, human stem cell biology, histology, IF, and microscopy.
Preference will be given to candidates who hold a strong record of specialized training & experience in grant writing. Candidates must also have the clear potential or demonstrated ability to work effectively with a diverse student body.
Initial review of applications will begin on March 15, 2017 and applicants will be considered until the positions are filled. Please apply here.
