A Postdoc Position in Studying RNA and Heart Biology Using Human Stem Cells (ES & iPS Cells)
Posted: June 3, 2014
Expires: August 1, 2014
Science jobs from University of Pittsburgh:
Recently, we identified a group of novel RNA regulators, including coding and non-coding RNAs, in early human cardiovascular development. We are seeking a self-motivated postdoc to study how the novel RNA factors regulate early human heart development and heart disease. This project is novel and expected to reveal a new layer of regulators in controlling human cardiogenesis and heart disease.
The successful candidate must be highly self-motivated with a recent Ph.D. degree. The candidate should have previous experience in RNA-related techniques with a good publication record, and strong background in molecular biology and cell biology. Experience in stem cell is not required. Preference will be given to individuals with hands-on experience associated with RNA and/or epigenetic studies, such as RNA immunoprecipitation, chromatin immunoprecipitation assay (ChIP) and ChIP-seq. Bioinformatics skills are a plus.
Interested candidates should submit their CV including names and contact information of three references and a brief description of their research experience and career goals via e-mail.
