The laboratory of Dr. Julie Sneddon (https://diabetes.ucsf.edu/lab/sneddon-lab), part of the Edythe and Eli Broad Center for Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research, the Diabetes Center, and the Department of Cell & Tissue Biology at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), is seeking highly motivated applicants for two funded postdoctoral scholar positions in developmental and stem cell biology.
The primary focus of our laboratory is on pancreatic development, disease, and regeneration, and we employ the tools of stem cell biology, developmental biology, genomics, and tissue engineering. We are recruiting postdoctoral candidates who are passionate about participating in one or more of the following projects:
- Investigating lineage determination in mouse and human pancreatic endocrine cell development using single-cell analyses, genetic lineage tracing, and human embryonic stem cell-based platforms. (See https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S2212877823000698?via%3Dihub and https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2022.02.17.480942v1)
Improving therapeutic strategies for beta cell replacement for treating patients with type 1 diabetes using CRISPR-based genome editing, tissue engineering, and transplantation techniques.
The positions are at the Parnassus Heights campus of UCSF, in the center of beautiful San Francisco, offering an opportunity to take part in a world-class research community in a highly collaborative environment.
Candidates must have strong organizational and communication skills and be highly self-motivated. Candidates should possess an M.D. or Ph.D. degree and a minimum of three years of laboratory experience in developmental or stem cell biology (or a related field) by the time they begin the position. Experience with human embryonic stem cell biology, bioengineering, mouse genetics, imaging, single-cell genomics techniques, or bioinformatics is a plus.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter describing their research experience and career goals, along with their CV and the names and email addresses of at least three professional references, to:
Dr. Julie Sneddon
