Postdoctoral Research Fellow – Cremins Lab

Reposted: September 15, 2016, 3 postdoc positions available merging wet and dry lab and high-resolution genome folding in the brain.

The Cremins Lab in the Department of Bioengineering and the Epigenetics Program at the University of Pennsylvania is recruiting up to *three* highly motivated postdoctoral research fellows with expertise in molecular biology and/or genomics. Candidate can begin as early as October 2015.

The candidate will be part of an enthusiastic interdisciplinary team focused on analyzing 3-D organization of epigenomes in the developing mammalian central nervous system using genomics technologies and high-throughput sequencing. The laboratory space is located in Penn’s Department of Bioengineering and laboratory members have will have extensive involvement in the Epigenetics Program in Penn’s School of Medicine, thus providing a rich multi-disciplinary training environment in molecular biology, genomics, epigenetics, stem cells, bioinformatics and biostatistics.

Candidates are required to hold a PhD, MD, or both. Expertise in cell and/or molecular biology is required, including, but not limited to, cloning, CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing, 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 these positions are for wet-lab experimental scientist(s), opportunities will be abundant to learn computational analysis of genomics data. Candidates with some level of bioinformatics experience  analyzing genome-wide epigenetic data sets will be considered favorably.

Applicants can submit a CV, a statement of research interests, and 3 or more references to jcremins@seas.upenn.edu.
