Postdoctoral Position - Transcriptional and Epigenetic Control of Organ Morphogenesis in Development, Evolution, and Disease

University of California, San Francisco

San Francisco, CA

Posted 8/30/2023

Postdoc position available in the laboratory of Dr. Licia Selleri at UCSF. We study the epigenetic and transcriptional regulation of morphogenesis in development, evolution, and disease, using genome-wide, systems biology approaches in different organismal systems, including mouse, chick, pig, and human embryos. A special focus is on organogenesis of the craniofacial & appendicular skeleton. The project for the available position will be aimed at understanding the cellular, genetic, and regulatory mechanisms underlying face morphogenesis. The successful candidate will also participate in an ongoing collaboration with the group of Dr. Axel Visel at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), based on a recently funded R01 grant focused on the characterization of enhancer variants, identified at the single-cell resolution, associated with human craniofacial malformations.

Candidates must hold a PhD degree in genetics, molecular biology, or relevant field and should have strong interests in gene regulation in morphogenesis and/or evo-devo. Bioinformatic skills and experience in next generation sequencing desirable. We have strong collaborations with other outstanding laboratories at Stanford and at LBNL. The UC system recently adjusted its compensation guidelines to provide highly competitive postdoc salary.

Applicants should send their CV, a statement of career goals, and contacts of three referees to [email protected].
