A postdoctoral opening is available immediately in the Yin laboratory at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. We use zebrafish and mouse models to study pathogenesis of cholestatic liver diseases, discover causative variants, and develop novel therapeutic strategies. Projects utilize multidisciplinary approaches: genetics (next generation sequencing, transgenesis, and application of CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing to generate mutants), confocal imaging, chemical screen, bioinformatics, and liver pathophysiology. We also have the unique opportunity to validate experimental findings in patient liver samples.
We seek a highly motivated scientist who is independent, focused, and possesses exceptional skills in cellular/molecular biology and an enthusiasm for learning and developing new techniques. Candidate must hold a recent doctorate in Cell/Developmental Biology, Genetics, or related field. Experiences with zebrafish and rodent models and background in hepatology are desirable, not essential.
Interested applicants should submit a cover letter detailing research experience and future interests, a Curriculum Vitae, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to:
