Postdoctoral position in Mouse Embryonic Development and Stem Cell Biology, National Institutes of Health

Posted 2/1/2019

We offer one fully-funded postdoctoral position up to five years in the Laboratory of Genome Integrity located at the National Institutes of Health (NIH/NCI, Bethesda, MD).

Our laboratory uses human and mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs) as well as mouse embryos to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying the maintenance/exit of pluripotency and self-renewal. Understanding cell plasticity, pluripotency and differentiation to get a better comprehension of embryonic development, cell transformation and cancer are our scientific interests.

The applicant should have or about to have a PhD in Developmental Biology, Genetics or similar, and must have demonstrated expertise in mouse embryology and in vitro embryo manipulation. Knowledge on mammalian tissue culture, molecular biology and/or next generation sequencing technologies and computational biology will be considered as an advantage.

We seek a highly motivated, creative individual, eager to learn and develop new technologies and complex cell systems based on live cell/embryo imaging, 3D modelling and CRISPR-based editing interested in understanding how a single cell can develop into a complex multicellular organism in vitro and in vivo.

Please send a brief cover letter, CV and three reference letters via e-mail to:
