Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Texas at Austin

Posted 10/23/2020

An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Steve Vokes in the Department of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Texas at Austin. The laboratory investigates how transcriptional repressors, especially those underlying Hedgehog signaling, interface with chromatin to regulate gene expression. We study these responses during development, homeostasis and regeneration. Our experimental approach is centered on the mouse model system in a variety of contexts, including the developing limb, knee and larynx, where we employ a combination of genetic and genomic approaches. We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow to focus on studying how GLI proteins interface with chromatin using a combination of genetic and genomic approaches in mouse embryos. Competitive candidates will have expertise in biochemistry, genomics or developmental biology and have received their PhD within the last year. Interested candidates should email svokes@austin.utexas.edu with their curriculum vitae and a brief statement of their research background and interests.
