Open positions: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Stem Cell and Developmental Biology
The Ferretti group is recruiting two outstanding, ambitious postdoctoral candidates with a strong background in stem cell/developmental biology to join her group.
The Ferretti group recruiting two outstanding, ambitious postdoctoral candidates with a strong background in stem cell/developmental biology to join her group. The goal of the Ferretti group is to establish how TFs and signaling pathways interact to define a precise cell fate and thereby develop tools for maximizing lineage differentiation of Embryonic Stem Cells (ESC). Specifically, the group will use in vivo and in vitro models to establish how transcription factors specify mesodermal progenitors and determine the competence of the early mesoderm to respond to signaling pathways. The postdoctoral candidate will study the transcriptions factors, histone modifications, and nucleosome remodeling guiding mesodermal differentiation.
A strong background in either gene regulation, or bio-informatics would enhance the relevance of the candidate. Furthermore, experience in mouse genetics, DNA editing, chromatin immunoprecipitation, confocal and live imaging of cells/organs is also considered of particular relevance.
