The Manu lab in the Biology Department at the University of North Dakota seeks a Postdoctoral Research Associate to study gene regulatory networks directing cell-fate decisions during hematopoiesis. We utilize tightly coupled experimental and computational approaches to uncover the gene regulatory logic underlying the differentiation of stem/multipotential progenitor cells into alternative lineages. Studies vary in scope from detailed cis-regulatory analyses of individual genes to broader studies of networks composed of dozens of genes. The Postdoctoral Research Associate will have the opportunity to work with a highly collaborative and multidisciplinary team developing novel approaches for inferring, modeling, and validating gene regulatory networks. We seek an independent experimental biologist with a strong interest in developmental biology and gene regulation and the ability to work collaboratively with other experimentalists and computational scientists. The successful candidate will have a strong research background in developmental genetics and preference will be given to candidates with experience in genome engineering techniques and/or functional genomics. The postdoc will develop and implement projects, utilizing modern genome engineering and high-throughput sequencing approaches, to perturb gene networks for inferring their structure and expression dynamics.
