Postdoctoral Position in Stem Cell Biology

Posted by , on 4 April 2021

Location: Santa Cruz, California

Closing Date: 1 July 2021

A postdoctoral opportunity is available in The Department of Biomolecular Engineering, Baskin School of Engineering at University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC). The department has a vibrant research community with strong focus on stem cell biology, RNA biology and Bioinformatics (home to UCSC genome browser).  Our lab is also affiliated with The Institute for the Biology of Stem Cells and UCSC Genomics Institute.

How stem cells decide to choose between two conflicting fates, division vs. differentiation, is an unsolved mystery of stem cell biology. The overarching goal of Shariati lab is to determine the mechanisms that link cell division to cellular differentiation in pluripotent cells. We will combine emerging genome-editing technologies with single cell imaging to determine regulatory principles of cell fate decisions in pluripotent cells.

Applicants with demonstrated experience in any of the following areas are highly encouraged to apply: Stem Cell BiologyTranscription, Quantitative Single Cell imaging, CRISPR screening and Mouse Genetics. Applicants will closely collaborate with Stanford Universitywhich is 1h drive from campus.The potential start date is July 2021.

As your postdoc advisor, I will support you to reach the career goals that you set for yourself. In addition, UCSC has exceptional career development programs for postdoctoral fellows. Santa Cruz is a great town for postdocs as you can easily refresh your mind by strolling in beautiful redwood forests on campus or going to one of the many nearby beaches. Please email me (alish {a} ucsc.edu) a cover letter stating your scientific background and interest, your CV and names/addresses of your advisors.

Applicants from underrepresented groups in sciences are highly encouraged to apply. Informal inquires also are welcomed!
