A Research Associate position is available in the Stottmann lab in the Divisions of Human Genetics and Developmental Biology. Our interests are in the genetic basis of congenital malformations affecting the forebrain and craniofacial structures. Projects involve characterizing novel genes and mutations identified through forward genetic approaches in both mouse and human. We use exome/genome sequencing analysis as well as a range of molecular embryological tools including genome editing in animal models and in vitro studies. Candidates will be expected to develop a vigorous research program in close consultation with the PI. Applicants with multiple first-author publications and experience in mouse genetics, molecular biology and/or embryology are preferred. Further preference will be given to applicants with demonstrable experience with iPSC culture.
