NIH-funded postdoctoral positions are immediately available in the Institute for Pediatric Regenerative Medicine and the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine, School of Medicine, University of California at Davis, to study the mechanism and prevention of several common and severe structural birth defects or developmental disorders, such as neural tube defects and orofacial clefts in genetically modified mutant mouse models. We currently focus on Wnt signaling and chromatin modification.
The institute has excellent research environment and provides strong research supports with additional postdoctoral fellowship opportunities for recent PhDs. Salary will be commensurate to the latest NIH scale, plus fringe benefits/health insurance. Self-motivated candidates who have PhD or equivalent degrees with demonstrated publication and closely related research experience, such as mouse molecular genetics, embryo manipulation, wholemount in situ hybridization, real-time PCR, immunoblot, chromatin immunoprecipitation, promoter luciferase assay, live imaging, cell sorting, single cell RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, and related genomic/epigenetic approaches are particularly welcome to apply.
Applicants may email their CVs (including research experience and technical expertise) and contact information of three references to Chengji Zhou, PhD (email@example.com) for consideration.
