An NIH funded postdoctoral fellow position is immediately available in the Knox Lab at the University of California, San Francisco (http://profiles.ucsf.edu/sarah.knox).
The Knox Lab aims to define fundamental mechanisms underlying the development, regeneration and aging of exocrine organs including salivary and lacrimal glands and the pancreas. In addition to our staple tools of mouse genetics, fetal organ culture and 3D imaging, we utilize a number of cutting edge approaches including organoids, live cell imaging, epigenetic assays (ATAC-seq) and single cell sequencing. The candidate will utilize these tools to discover how exocrine organs develop, regenerate and age in response to cues from the autonomic and sensory nervous systems.
Desired skills and experience:
Our lab is looking for highly motivated candidates with a recent PhD and a record of productive research as evidenced by at least 1 published manuscript in a peer reviewed international journal.
Candidates with previous experience in molecular biology, organogenesis, epigenetics, and/or mouse models are preferred.
Excellent written and oral communication skills in English and the ability to work independently and as part of a collaborative team are a precondition.
Please submit your cover letter, CV/resume including list of publications and names and contact information for 3 references to: firstname.lastname@example.org
