A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Sung-Ho Huh at the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
The research theme of Huh lab is on investigating cellular and molecular basis of progenitor development, maintenance and regeneration using mouse model system. We focus on (i) identifying downstream targets of FGF signaling for sensory progenitor maintenance and differentiation; (ii) identifying roles of Wnt/β-catening signaling in sensory development; and (iii) identifying mechanisms regulating nephron progenitor maintenance. For more information about our research, please see the recent publications in eLife (PMID: 25915623), PLoS Biology (PMID: 22235191), Developmental Cell (PMID: 22698282), and Genes & Development (PMID: 23431057). We are looking for individuals who are interested in working on understanding mechanisms by which signaling pathways regulating inner ear progenitor cells generation and maintenance during development and regeneration. Candidates should have a good publication record and Ph.D. in developmental biology or related fields. Experience with mouse embryology, complicated mouse genetics, RNA sequencing, in vitro organ culture are desired. Candidates should also demonstrate excellent communication skills and have a strong passion and commitment to science.
Interested applicants should send a PDF file including a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references to Sung-Ho Huh at email@example.com
