The Sun lab at Yale University is currently seeking a postdoctoral candidate. We study the function of the cilium in vertebrate development and diseases, with a particular focus on polycystic kidney disease and primary ciliary dyskinesia. More detailed information about lab research can be found at https://medicine.yale.edu/genetics/people/zhaoxia_sun-2.profile.
We use multidisciplinary approaches ranging from genetics to live imaging in our research. A solid foundation in molecular biology and/or development is a prerequisite. Although the candidate is expected to work with both zebrafish and mouse models, experience in both is not required. In addition to technical proficiency, the ability to drive an independent project and collaborate with scientists within and outside of our group is essential. The successful candidate is also expected to participate multiple joint group meetings by presenting and offering feed backs.
Interested? Please send a cover letter, CV and names and contact information of three references to professor Zhaoxia Sun (Zhaoxia.Sun@Yale.edu)
