Postdoc in Drosophila genetics, University of California San Francisco

Posted by , on 23 December 2015

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the University of California San Francisco, Broad Center of Regeneration Medicine and Stem Cell Research, in the laboratory of Dr. Katja Brückner.


The laboratory investigates molecular principles of how the peripheral nervous system and its inputs regulate stem cell niches and tissue microenvironments during animal development and homeostasis. We utilize established Drosophila melanogaster models that address the regulation of hematopoiesis by sensory neurons and extrinsic stimuli. The lab also aims to expand the research program into other organ systems in Drosophila, and complementary systems of murine stem cells and self-renewing tissue macrophages. Projects are federally funded by NIH R01 and other NIH and NSF grants.


The ideal candidate is a talented, determined and creative scientist with a solid background in developmental biology and genetics. Prior work with Drosophila genetics, invertebrate or vertebrate neurobiology or hematopoiesis/macrophage biology is preferred. General basic skills in molecular biology, histology and cell-based assays are expected. Candidates must hold a recent PhD, MD or MD/PhD degree (or anticipate such a degree prior to starting the postdoc), have prior publications and be motivated and hardworking.


UCSF and the Broad Center offer a vibrant scientific environment, competitive salary and benefits. Please send a CV, statement of research interests and names and contact information of three references to:
