The laboratory of Susan Quaggin, MD at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Department of Pediatric Nephrology and Adult Nephrology and Hypertension is looking for a postdoctoral fellow in functional genomics in kidney development. The long-term goal of research within the Quaggin lab is to leverage knowledge of the fundamental pathways that promote kidney development into novel therapies for kidney regeneration in children with congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract, and adults after renal injury. Current projects in the lab are focused on using advanced microscopy and single-cell approaches to identify the role of specific signaling pathways in driving the development of nephron progenitor cells to mature kidney cells and elucidating how alteration in transcriptional regulation leads to disrupted phenotype.
Priority will be given to applicants with prior training in developmental biology, and candidates with expertise in advanced imaging techniques.
The candidate must be enthusiastic, have strong written and oral communication skills, be highly motivated, intellectually creative, able to work independently, and function well as part of a team.
Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
Applicants should submit a CV, a cover letter detailing research interests and career goals, up to three relevant papers, and contact information for three references to firstname.lastname@example.org
