Postdoctoral position in developmental genomics and gene regulation at Penn

The Murray laboratory at the University of Pennsylvania aims to understand how genomes encode diverse gene expression patterns and cellular phenotypes. We have developed novel tools to combine quantitative microscopy with the invariant C. elegans embryonic lineage to study gene expression dynamics at cellular resolution. Current projects in the lab combine these imaging methods with high throughput genetics and genomics to identify and characterize regulatory mechanisms in development.

We seek a postdoctoral fellow who is interested in applying and extending cutting edge technology to the study of developmental regulation. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a biomedical discipline and should be comfortable with genetics, molecular biology and computational approaches. Applicants with experience in C. elegans or who have previously worked with functional genomics datasets are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants should send a CV, a brief cover letter outlining their research accomplishments and interests, and contact information for at least three references to John Murray at
