Postdoctoral Position in Signaling Mechanisms during Organogenesis at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, La Jolla, California

Posted 6/21/2017

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available to investigate the signaling functions of retinoic acid (RA) during mouse embryo development.  Our laboratory has reviewed recent advances in this field:  Cunningham, T.J. and Duester, G. Mechanisms of retinoic acid signalling and its roles in organ and limb development.  Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology 16: 110-123 (2015).

We are searching for a Postdoctoral Associate to explore the mechanisms of RA signaling and nuclear receptor coregulators during the early stages of organogenesis and limb formation using CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing, RNA-seq transcriptome analysis, and embryo chromatin immunoprecipitation.

Candidates should have a strong background in developmental biology.  Salary $47,486 with full benefits.

Interested applicants should email their CV and names of three references to:
