An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available that will focus on investigating the signaling functions of retinoic acid during mouse embryonic development.
We are searching for a Postdoctoral Associate to explore the epigenetic mechanisms through which retinoic acid and nuclear receptor transcriptional coregulators control the early stages of organogenesis, including identification of direct target genes and pathways controlled by retinoic acid The methods used will include CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing, RNA-seq transcriptome analysis, and chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP-seq).
Candidates should possess a Ph.D. with a strong background in molecular biology, particularly RNA-seq and ChIP-seq; expertise in mouse developmental biology is helpful but not required. First year salary $58,000 with full benefits; second year salary $62,000; subsequent increases based on performance.
Interested applicants should email their CV and contact info for three references to:
