Job opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellowship in Stem Cell and Developmental Biology
We are looking for an outstanding, ambitious postdoctoral candidate with a strong background in stem cell/developmental biology to join our group.
The goal of our 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, we 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.
