Opportunity: Postdoctoral Fellow in Developmental and Stem Cell Biology @ Washington University School of Medicine -- St. Louis, MO (US)
Submitted by Kristen Kroll; posted on Friday, October 19, 2012
BACKGROUND:
A postdoctoral position is available to study transcriptional and epigenetic regulation of vertebrate neural development in the laboratory of Kristen L. Kroll at Washington University School of Medicine. We are defining how cells of the early embryo and embryonic stem cells control neural fate acquisition, neural stem and precursor cell maintenance, and neuronal differentiation. We are using genome-wide approaches to define the transcriptional regulatory networks that control neural development and are characterizing how epigenetic regulation modulates these neural gene regulatory networks. We are also assessing how dysregulation of epigenetic activities contributes to malignancy in medulloblastoma and glioblastoma. Biochemical and molecular characterization of essential regulatory molecules is complemented by work in mouse animal models and in mouse and/or human embryonic stem cell, neural stem cell, and other cell-based models. For additional information see: [link] or [link]

REQUIREMENTS:
Candidates should hold a recent PhD with less than 2 years of prior post-doctoral experience. Preference will be given to applicants with a strong interest in and research training relevant to the areas of vertebrate neural development, stem cell biology, and transcriptional or epigenetic regulation.

COMPENSATION:
Setting/Salary/Benefits:
Our laboratory is in an academic setting in the Department of Developmental Biology at Washington University School of Medicine (St. Louis), an internationally recognized research institution with a dynamic research environment and extensive infrastructural and core facility support. Postdoctoral appointees at Washington University receive a starting salary based on the NIH NRSA guidelines and a generous benefit package. Complete information on the benefit package is located on the WUSM Human Resources Benefits Website (http://medschoolhr.wustl.edu). The St. Louis area combines the attractions of a major city with family-friendly and affordable lifestyle opportunities (http://www.stlouis.com/).

HOW TO APPLY:
Applicants living in the US and US citizens are strongly preferred. Interested candidates may send a CV/names of references by email to kkroll[at]wustl.edu or by regular mail to Kristen L. Kroll, Washington University School of Medicine, Campus Box 8103, 660 S. Euclid Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110.
