In my group at the University of Edinburgh MRC Human Genetics Unit, we investigate how gene expression is regulated during development, and how this can go awry in human disease. We focus on congenital craniofacial abnormalities, and understanding how non-coding genetic mutations can drive these disorders.

Postdoc opportunity in gene regulation, human facial development and disease at University of Edinburgh, MRC Human Genetics Unit

Posted by , on 16 December 2021

We seek an outstanding postdoctoral fellow to join the group of Dr. Hannah Long at the MRC Human Genetics Unit at the University of Edinburgh within a programme investigating mechanisms of gene regulation during craniofacial development and disease. Craniofacial malformations account for over a third of all human congenital disorders, and in many cases these […]
