An NIH-funded postdoctoral position is available to investigate the signaling functions of retinoic acid (RA) during mouse embryo development. Our laboratory has reviewed recent advances in this field: Cunningham, T.J. and Duester, G. Mechanisms of retinoic acid signalling and its roles in organ and limb development. Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology 16: 110-123 (2015).


We are searching for a Postdoctoral Associate to explore the mechanisms of RA signaling during the early stages of organogenesis and limb formation using CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing, RNA-seq transcriptome analysis, and embryo chromatin immunoprecipitation.


Candidates should have a strong background in developmental biology. Salary $47,476 with full benefits.


Interested applicants should email their CV and names of three references to:

Gregg Duester, Ph.D.
