An NIH-funded postdoctoral position in developmental gene regulation is available immediately in Dr. Amanda Zacharias’s Lab at Cincinnati Children’s in Cincinnati, Ohio. We seek to understand how Wnt signaling activates distinct targets in different developmental contexts by studying how enhancers integrate multiple quantitative inputs to activate gene expression. We use an innovative time-lapse imaging approach to measure expression of a gene or cis-regulatory element in all cells of a live C. elegans embryo throughout development and plan to extend our studies to mammalian embryonic stem cells.
Requirements: Interested candidates must have a PhD and a strong record of accomplishment and experience in developmental biology, model organism genetics or computational modeling. The ideal candidate will have proficiency in English, at least one first author publication in a reputable international journal from their PhD work, and be collegial and highly motivated.
Benefits: Our outstanding postdoc benefits package includes comprehensive Health, Dental, Life, and Disability Insurance, 24 days of paid time off, relocation expenses, and Retirement benefits.
The Zacharias Lab is located in the vibrant division of Developmental Biology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in facilities that include 1 million square feet of space devoted to research, adjacent to the University of Cincinnati.
Please submit your application to Dr. Zacharias with the following information: cover letter, CV and contact details for 3 referees.
