Open Postdoctoral Scholar Position

08/10/17 - The UC Irvine Center for Complex Biological Systems seeks a postdoctoral scholar to study the polygenic basis of congenital heart defects, and the transcriptional identity of heart progenitor cells, in mouse models of mammalian heart development.  The position is fully funded and will be supervised by Professors Anne Calof and Arthur Lander.   Research will focus on how multiple small perturbations to gene expression collectively produce heart defects in multi-system birth defects disorders known as transcriptomopathies.

The successful applicant will have a Ph.D. in molecular and/or developmental biology, genetics, or genomics, and evidence of publication and/or preparation of high quality journal article(s). The applicant’s training should provide sufficient preparation to use mouse genetics, embryology, molecular biology, high resolution optical imaging (including optical projection tomography and MRI), together with genomics (RNA sequencing/bioinformatics), to identify morphogenetic abnormalities (progenitor cell proliferation, patterning and migration) and gene expression changes. Single-cell RNA sequencing of early embryos will also be used to identify transcriptional changes in individual progenitor cells.

Salary level is negotiable and will depend upon the candidate’s experience. All appointments are for one year with potential for extension dependent upon performance and funding.

Requirements

Please submit a letter of interest, current CV, statement of research and a minimum of 2 reference letters to:

Postdoctoral Scholar, Project Scientist and Specialist Positions 

      • Postdoctoral Scholar, Project Scientist and Specialist positions are occasionally available throughout the year in The Center for Complex Biological Systems, at the University of California, Irvine.
      • Initial appointment would be for a one-year period, with the possibility of extension, dependant in part on continuing extramural funding availability.
      • Current projects are focused on how biological systems in model organisms process spatial information during development, intracellular signaling, and cell proliferation. Other efforts within the Center include the development of computational and optical tools needed for measuring and modeling spatially dynamic systems and fluorescence spectroscopy and microscopy methods.

Please refer to the UCI Academic Employment website for current positions available within the Center, and other academic units at UC Irvine.
