Two postdoctoral positions in germ cell epigenetics and aging at University of California, San Francisco

Posted 7/2/2019

The Laird Lab at University of California, San Francisco is seeking postdoctoral fellows to join our group in the following projects:

1) Decoding the effects of the prenatal environment on the epigenome of germ cells. This NIEHS funded project focuses on how fetal germ cells sense and remember exposures to stress and relevant endocrine-disrupting chemicals using mouse models.

2) Identifying mechanisms of ovarian aging in mice and naked mole rats. This project funded by the W.M. Keck Foundation examines the role of the ovary in systemic aging as part of a multi-lab collaboration.

The positions are in the UCSF Edythe and Eli Broad Center for Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research located at the UCSF Parnassus Heights campus, in the heart of San Francisco. UCSF offers an outstanding research community, access to cutting-edge technologies and a supportive working environment. Candidates with a Ph.D. degree in a biological science, publications, demonstrated creativity and research experience in a relevant field such as genetics, epigenetics, live/quantitative imaging or basic bioinformatics should submit a coverletter, C.V. and names of at least 2 references via email to
