Postdoctoral Fellow Recruitment
The Lohnes laboratory focuses on understanding of the interplay between signaling pathways and transcription factors in regulating genetic networks involved in mammalian development and in the eitiology of diseases such as colorectal cancer. Our principal models are genetically engineered mice and gene-edited stem cells. Our recent work has focused on the Cdx family of transcription factors, and their interplay with important signaling pathways including the Wnt and Notch pathways. In addition, to a better understanding of the gene networks regulated Cdx in conjunction with these pathways, we are also exploring the interaction between Cdx and regulators of the eipgenome.
We are currently recruiting a Postdoctoral fellow to join the group. The ideal candidate will be highly motivated, with a strong background in mouse genetics/development, tissue culture, regulation of gene expression (including RNAseq and ChIPseq) and related techniques in cell and molecular biology. The ability to work both independently as well as in a team setting is essential.
The position is available for a period of two years, with the possibility of extension, at a salary of $45,000/year.
Interested candidates are asked to forward their CV as well as the names and contact information of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The position will remain open until filled.
