The Kamberov lab is seeking a creative and exceptionally motivated candidate to fill a post-doctoral position in the field of skin development and regeneration. The relevant project will investigate genetic networks controlling the development, patterning, and evolutionary variation of eccrine sweat glands, which are essential for thermoregulation in humans. A long-term goal of this project is to apply these findings to the regeneration of sweat glands in vitro. Experimental approaches to be used include analysis and validation of large-scale transcriptomic data from the skin, functional testing and modeling in mice and in vitro organoid culture.
A doctorate in biology or related field is required. Applicants with a strong background in developmental biology, vertebrate genetics and molecular biology, and familiarity with large-scale data analysis are especially encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should provide: 1) a CV 2) a brief letter detailing your interest in the lab and relevant past research experience 3) contact information for three references who can comment on your research. Application materials and any questions regarding the position should be addressed to Yana Kamberov: firstname.lastname@example.org
