Postdoctoral Fellow, University of South Carolina

Posted 5/24/2017

The Kathrein lab in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of South Carolina has an opening for a postdoctoral research fellow.  Our research focuses on understanding how chromatin remodeling regulates stem cell function using the hematopoietic system.  We use a multidisciplinary approach to understand stem cell biology, combining work in human progenitor blood cells for ChIP-seq and RNA-seq with mechanistic experiments in both the zebrafish and mouse model systems. Our overall goals are to find new mechanisms for improving stem cell function and to develop novel therapeutic approaches for cancer treatment.  More information can be found here:

We seek a dynamic, responsible, collaborative individual to join our group.  Candidates must have recently obtained a PhD in a related field.  Experience in either zebrafish or mouse models is strongly.  Primary responsibilities include experimental design, execution, and analysis.  Experience with NGS data analysis a plus.  The candidate must be able to work independently and collaboratively.  Compensation will be commensurate with qualifications and in accordance with University and NIH guidelines.

Applicants should email a cover letter, CV, and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Katie Kathrein (
