Postdoc Position – Retinal Reprogramming and Regeneration, Houston, TX

Posted 6/23/2021

The Poché Lab is seeking highly motivated postdocs with experience or interest in retinal developmental biology and regeneration. This NIH R01-funded position is focused on the study of the molecular mechanisms blocking mammalian Müller glial cell (MG)-mediated retinal regeneration. Our goal is to determine whether the mouse retina retains latent regenerative potential, akin to other vertebrate species, and whether we can genetically “awaken” that potential to restore sight.

Ideal candidates will have a strong background in mouse genetics and techniques to probe the transcriptome (RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq, single cell-seq, etc.). Additionally, the Poché lab routinely performs genetic loss- and gain-of-function experiments, fate mapping, gene therapy, molecular biology, and live retinal confocal microscopy.

We are located at Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) within in the Texas Medical Center (TMC). The TMC is largest medical center on the world thereby providing BCM postdocs with a tremendous amount of technical and intellectual resources. In addition to technical training, all postdocs within the lab routinely receive one-on-one instruction in grant writing and presentation skills.

To apply, please email a current CV and contact information for three references to Application review will begin immediately.
