We are seeking a highly motivated and creative scientist for a postdoctoral position in the recently established laboratory of Makiko Iwafuchi-Doi at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. We are keen to reveal chromatin regulatory principles underlying dramatic cell fate changing events that occur in embryonic development, tissue repair (physiological reprogramming), and diseases, and ultimately to utilize this knowledge to precisely engineer cell fates. We currently focus on how different families of pioneer transcription factors establish cell-type-specific chromatin landscape. We are building a team to tackle these questions, combining developmental biology and human stem cells and organoid culture systems with genetics and genomics/bioinformatics.
The ideal candidate will have at least one first author publication and a strong background in cell/developmental biology and molecular biology. Prior experience in bioinformatics is preferred but not a prerequisite. Successful and motivated candidates wishing to switch from other fields will also be considered.
If you are interested in joining the lab, please send your CV including the names of 3 references, along with a brief statement of your research interests to Maki (Makiko.Doi@cchmc.org).
