Gene regulatory networks relevant to risk for cleft lip and palate
The Cornell group is investigating pathological mechanisms underlying genetic variants associated with increased risk for orofacial clefting. Current projects focus on gene regulatory network governing differentiation of periderm and neural crest. To this end, reverse genetics, CUT&RUN, ATAC-seq, nNanostring profiling, and in vivo reporter assays are all deployed. We use zebrafish, cell line and mouse models. A partial list of publications from the Cornell group is found here:
Candidates must have a PhD in a related scientific discipline and at least one first author publication. A background in developmental biology, cell biology or genetics is preferred. Experience in bioinformatics is desirable. Interested candidates should submit their Curriculum Vitae, a cover letter, and complete contact information for two or three references to the Jobs@UIOWA online application.
