Postdoctoral research fellow
Regeneration of endocrine cells: The Parsons Lab in the Department of Developmental and Cell Biology at the University of California, Irvine seeks a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher. The lab has developed several techniques to facilitate studying regeneration in zebrafish and produced innovative research on the role of progenitors in both pancreas development and repair. A successful candidate would possess a strong research background in developmental biology, stem cell biology, and ideally zebrafish genetics. Preference will be given to applicants with additional research experience in studying functional genomics. Good written and oral communication skills are essential, along with excellent organizational skills. The postdoctoral fellow will be expected to apply for fellowship grants and actively manage ongoing projects, including investigating how the contribution of pancreas progenitors to regeneration is regulated at a genomic level.
The Department of Developmental and Cell Biology houses a diverse and exciting group of research labs providing numerous opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration. The Parsons Lab is committed to scientific excellence, diversity, and to providing mentorship for professional growth. Qualified candidates should send a cover letter to Dr. Parsons including research interests, a curriculum vitae and the names and addresses of three references using the following on-line recruitment URL:
