A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Rosa Guzzo lab to study the role of a chromatin modifier in endochondral bone development, growth and repair. Our lab at UConn Health, School of Medicine utilizes in vivo and in vitro approaches including mouse genetic models, molecular and cellular biology approaches, transcriptomics, and chromatin-based assays to better understand epigenetic regulation of the multi-step program of chondrocyte differentiation.

We are seeking an enthusiastic, self-motivated scientist for this NIH-funded position. Individuals who have obtained a PhD degree in the last three years in any area of biological sciences are encouraged to apply. Strong candidates will have a proven track record of publications, proficiency in written and spoken English, and excellent interpersonal and analytical skills.

Preferred qualifications include:

  • experience working with mice
  • expertise in histology and histological analyses
  • prior experience with chromatin-based assays (ie. ChIPseq)
  • experience in (single cell) omics techniques and computational analysis of genomic and/or RNA sequencing data

The successful candidate will have the ability to plan and carry out experiments independently and with the investigative team, to analyze and interpret the data, to develop and apply new concepts and to prepare abstracts and presentations for conferences, manuscripts and reports.
