Postdoctoral positions are available in Dr. Andrew Brack's laboratory in the Eli and Edythe Broad Center for Stem Cell Research and Regeneration Medicine at UCSF. The projects are to study the biology of mammalian skeletal muscle stem cells during repair and aging. Our growing research program aims to understand the interactions between muscle stem cells and their niches. We are also exploring the functional heterogeneity within stem cell compartments that govern tissue homeostasis, repair and aging. The position offers excellent opportunities for publication and career development within an outstanding stem cell community.
Highly motivated individuals with a strong interest in stem cell research and with the ability to multitask in a fast-paced lab are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be recent Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. graduates in cellular biology, molecular biology, genetics or developmental biology. A background in mouse work and stem cells, as well as a track record of prior publications is required. Experience in chromatin biology, metabolism, genome editing and/or bioinformatics is strongly desired.
Interested applicants should send a CV and a statement that describes past accomplishments, research interests and career goals, expected availability date and contact information of 3 referees to Ericka Rodriguez (Ericka.Rodriguez@ucsf.edu).
