The lab of Dr. Pawel Stankiewicz is seeking a Postdoctoral Associate to work on an NIH-funded project focused on studying the molecular bases of lung development in humans.  We invite you to learn more about our research.

Training will be provided in grant application preparation. At Baylor College of Medicine, postdoctoral associates will have access to daily lectures and seminars at Baylor, and can participate in domestic conferences, meetings, and the annual departmental retreat. Position will work with technologies/techniques such as next generation sequencing (whole genome sequencing, exome sequencing, RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, Hi-C), array CGH, droplet digital PCR, and genome editing.

The postdoctoral position will study the genetic bases of lung development and pathogenesis of lethal lung developmental disorders.  Research will use clinical specimens and human cell lines to identify novel genes and mechanisms of gene regulation playing an important role in lung development, as well as biomarkers that can be translated to the clinic.
