Post Doctoral / Research Associate Position in Developmental Genomics

Posted by , on 28 July 2017

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

Post doctoral and/or Research Associate position available to study the genetic and epigenetic control of stem cell attributes and pluripotency, focusing on the neural crest gene regulatory network (NC-GRN). Neural crest cells are stem cell-like progenitors that migrate extensively and whose genesis was central to the evolution of vertebrates. Misregulation of components of the NC-GRN underlies numerous human diseases and congenital disorders.

Candidates should have a background in bioinformatics and/or computational biology, strong analytical skills, and significant experience in the analysis of NGS data (ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, ATACseq etc) and proficiency in programming languages (R, Python, PERL  etc). Projects may also involve quantitative image analysis. Candidates should be highly motivated, detail oriented, possess excellent communication skills and the ability to work collaboratively as part of an interdisciplinary team. The LaBonne lab is located on Northwestern University’s beautiful lakeside campus close to the amazing city of Chicago.

Please send a CV, brief description of research interests, and the names of three references to:

Carole LaBonne, PhD (
