Yale School of Medicine

New Haven, CT

Posted 5/17/2022

Peggy Myung, MD, PhD, is seeking a post-doctoral research fellow and computational/bioinformatician for a position in her laboratory in the Department of Dermatology, Yale School of Medicine. In the Myung lab, we study the molecular and cellular mechanisms of hair follicle development and regeneration, using single-cell genomic and mouse genetic approaches (Developmental Cell, 2019; Developmental Cell, 2022). The projects employ a broad range of techniques, including mouse genetics, live imaging, quantitative RNA FISH, single-cell RNA/ATAC sequencing, and ChIP/CUT&Run sequencing.  

Ideal applicants are motivated and curious individuals who will soon or recently obtained a Ph.D. We seek creative individuals who enjoy the process of hypothesis-driven research and collaborations, as well as pioneering new methods and concepts. Prior research experience with the above techniques is a plus but not absolutely required. The goal is to design and perform scientific experiments that can be shared with the scientific community. In addition, the candidate will be given career development opportunities that are tailored to his/her long-term career goals.

Interested candidates should email a cover letter that briefly describes their personal and career goals as well as their previous research/scientific background, their CV, and 3 letters of reference to [email protected].
