Open Postdoctoral Positions

3-D Epigenomes And Systems Neurobiology Postdoctoral Research Fellow

The Cremins Lab in the Department of Bioengineering and the Epigenetics Program at the University of Pennsylvania is recruiting a highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow with expertise in molecular biology and genomics. Position is initially offered for one year - and can be extended up to at least three years contingent upon outstanding performance. Candidate can begin as early as June 2014.

Projects will be available within the core mission of the Cremins Lab to understand epigenetic mechanisms regulating development and diseases of the mammalian central nervous system.

The candidate will be part of an enthusiastic interdisciplinary team focused on analyzing 3D organization of epigenomes in mammalian neurons using genomics technologies and high-throughput sequencing. The laboratory space is located in Penn's School of Engineering and Applied Science and laboratory members have will have extensive involvement in Penn's Epigenetics Program in the School of Medicine, thus providing a rich multidisciplinary training environment in molecular biology, genomics, epigenetics, stem cells, bioinformatics and biostatistics.

Candidates are required to hold a Ph.D., M.D., or both. Must be a U.S. citizen or possess a U.S. permanent residency card. Extensive expertise in molecular biology is required, including, but not limited to, cloning, qRT-PCR, virus packaging, mammalian cell transduction, chromatin immunoprecipitation, chromosome-conformation-capture, etc.

Preference will be given to candidates with experience generating data sets for high-throughput sequencing and genomics analysis. Although this position is for a wet-lab experimental scientist, candidates with some level of bioinformatics experience analyzing genome-wide epigenetic data sets will be considered favorably.

Applicants should submit a CV, a statement of research interests, and 2-3 references to jcremins@seas.upenn.edu
