An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available in the Sturgeon laboratory at Washington University in St. Louis, to begin as soon as possible. We are looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to join our team. Research will focus on the signal and transcriptional mechanisms regulating definitive hematopoietic specification using human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) and murine embryo model systems. We are particularly interested in the signal, genetic and epigenetic mechanisms controlling hemogenic endothelium and HSC specification. A wide variety of techniques will be employed, including but not limited to FACS, RNASeq and single-cell RNASeq, ChIPseq / ChIPmentation, CyTOF, xenografts, and CRISPR-mediated genome engineering.
Applicants should have a PhD or MD and demonstrated relevant research experience and publication record. Excellent verbal and written English communication skills are essential. A strong background in either hematopoiesis / immunology, developmental biology, or cell biology is preferred. Experience in transcriptome / epigenetic analysis, or murine xenograft assays would be an asset. Preference will be given to those with no previous postdoctoral experience.
Interested applicants should send a current CV and addresses of two referees to: Chris Sturgeon firstname.lastname@example.org
