The Lefebvre laboratory is looking for a postdoctoral fellow committed to a dynamic career in musculoskeletal research.
The fellow will study how SOXC transcription factors control the identity, self-renewal, and differentiation potential of skeletal stem cells. The project will make use of cutting-edge approaches, including mouse genetic models and RNA-seq and ChIP-seq assays. New findings are anticipated to help uncover mechanisms underlying human skeletal diseases and develop novel approaches to treat these diseases. Thus, successful accomplishment of the project will allow the fellow to launch a promising research career in stem cell and molecular genetics relevant to human skeletal diseases.
Expertise in at least one of the following areas is desired: bone biology, stem cell biology, mouse models, and high-throughput sequencing approaches.
Candidates must have a recent Ph.D. degree in biological sciences and a strong publication record. They should be proficient in English and have strong communication, interpersonal and organizational skills.
The Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute participates in multiple career-development programs and provides an exceptionally interactive and front-line scientific environment with state-of-the-art core facilities.
Interested candidates should send a CV, description of career goals, and contact information for three references to Dr. Veronique Lefebvre (firstname.lastname@example.org).
